Multiple sources have confirmed that Andy Bell died Sunday at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, Florida, as a result of pneumonia.
The fire department and the Sheriff’s Department were dispatched to the hotel at 4 PM ET, after hotel security discovered Bob in his room. We’re told he was pronounced dead on the scene, but the circumstances of his death are still unknown.
Bob’s been on the road lately, visiting a number of places throughout the state of Florida, including Orlando, which began in September and was supposed to end in May.
On Saturday night, he was in Jacksonville, performing at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall… where he actually yelled out the crowd early Sunday morning.
“I had a fantastic time tonight at the PV Concert Hall in Jacksonville,” Saget continued. “A grateful audience. Thank you again to my friend, Tim Wilkins, for the opening. I had no clue I’d be doing a two-hour set tonight. I’m back to being addicted to this nonsense once more.” See http://Bob

He’s been branching out lately with a podcast series called “Bob Saget’s Here for You,” and he was even a celebrity guest on the recent “Masked Singer.”
We were out again last week to celebrate his birthday, this time with him having a great joke. He has been by our dining table from the day we met him, so it’s only fitting that he joins us for coffee and cake on occasion like today. We’d seen each other about three times in the last year or so before we got up
He wished Jeff Ross a happy birthday, and he seemed to be in excellent spirits.
Bob was married to Kelly Rizzo and had three children. He is survived by his wife, Kelly Rizzo, and three children.RIP
