The star’s death was confirmed by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

“Earlier today, deputies were called to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes for a call about an unresponsive man in a hotel room,” the office tweeted at the time.

They added: “The man was identified as Robert Saget & pronounced deceased on scene. Detectives found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case.”

‘DEVASTATED’

Bob’s family would soon share a statement to Us Weekly: “We are devastated to confirm that our beloved Bob passed away today.

“He was everything to us and we want you to know how much he loved his fans, performing live and bringing people from all walks of life together with laughter.”

Bob tied the knot with his wife Kelly in 2018, although they did not have any kids together.

The comedian shared twins Aubrey and Lara Melanie, born in 1987, and daughter Jennifer Belle, was born in 1992, with his first wife, and high school sweetheart, Sherri Kramer.

Bob had been touring the country recently, coming to multiple locations in Florida. He was doing a show in Jacksonville Saturday night, staying until early Sunday morning.

“Loved tonight’s show @PV_ConcertHall in Jacksonville. Appreciative audience. Thanks again to @RealTimWilkins for opening,” tweeted Bob around 3 in the morning on Sunday.

‘IN GREAT SPIRITS’

Sources previously exclusively told The Sun: “Bob was in great spirits the days before, performing sold out comedy shows in Florida.

“You can see from his Instagram posts following the show what a blast he had on stage and how excited he was to be back on the comedy tour circuit.”

The insider then spoke about how Kelly is “so appreciative and touched by all of the support, media tributes, fan response, and messages from close friends and family.”

The source added: “She is still numb, as this has happened less than 24 hours ago, so she needs time to process this, and will speak out when she has had some time to properly grieve.

“It is truly devastating.”

Bob reportedly made his final phone call to Kelly before “dying in his sleep without suffering.”
