Bob Saget wouldn’t be the first in his immediate family to die of a heart attack…that’s what killed 3 of his uncles.
In Bob’s book, “Dirty Daddy: The Chronicles of a Family Man Turned Filthy Comedian”, he refers to the fact that 3 of his uncles died of a heart attack between the ages of 37 and 41.
When Bob was 8 years old, his Uncle Ozzie died at age 40 of a heart attack while chasing children in the neighborhood after stealing a tire.
Tragedy struck again the following year…Bob lost his Uncle Manny to a double heart attack.
Then, when Bob was 15, he said his uncle sami died aged 37 of a heart attack suffered while playing tennis.
Bob also notes that his own father suffered a massive heart attack as a child…then had another heart attack just 6 months later.
Bob’s family history of heart attacks may be significant… TMZ broke the story, the operating theory is that Bob is dead in his hotel room in Orlando either a heart attack or a stroke, although the official cause of death will not be determined for weeks.
