Bob Saget was laid to rest at a small funeral service for family and friends on January 14, TMZ reported. The service and burial for the beloved comedian were held at Mt. Sinai Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles, per the outlet. TMZ reported a reception for family and friends was held at Jeff Franklin’s house, the creator of “Full House.” TMZ reported a planned larger public memorial for Saget, but no date is set.
Saget was Jewish, and a funeral and burial happen quickly after a death in the Jewish religion, per Chabad.org. The comedian’s former rabbi wrote a heartbreaking tribute to Saget in The Forward, gushing over their 30-year friendship. “For me personally, Bob was one of the greatest gifts of my life,” Steve Carr Reuben wrote. “No matter how busy he was with his remarkable career, he was always there with his love, his humor, and his giving heart for every event, celebration, and important moment in my life as well.”
Saget is survived by his wife, Kelly Rizzo, and three adult daughters shared with ex-wife Sherri Kramer; Aubrey, Lara, and Jennifer, according to People.
