We were blooming.”

Bob Saget died in January 2022 after being found unresponsive in his room at the Ritz Carlton in Orlando, Florida. Autopsy reports released on February 9, 2022, showed that he had blunt head trauma from an accidental blow to the back of his head. John Stamos has been working hard to keep his friend’s memory alive since his death. In particular, he brought together a couple of Saget’s friends to produce a Netflix special, Dirty Daddy: The Bob Saget Tribute, as a means to honor the memory of their late friend. In addition, he attended the Critics Choice Real TV Awards to present an award for Saget to his wife, Kelly Rizzo. The Impact Award given to Saget posthumously “recognizes an outstanding individual for career excellence and the positive impact they made on the world of nonfiction content.”
In his bid to continuously honor his friend’s memory, he criticized the organizers of the 2022 Tony Awards for not including Bob Saget in their Memoriam tribute. He wrote on the 12th of June via Instagram, revealing his feelings that Saget’s name wasn’t on the list.
“Disappointed to hear that @bobsaget will be LEFT OUT of the In Memoriam segment tonight @The Tonyawards. Bob was brilliant in The Drowsy Chaperone& Hand to God. Come on @BroadwayLeague and @Thewing! Do the right thing! Bob loved Broadway and I know the community loved him,” Stamos posted on Twitter.
