Bob Saget's Touring Partner Mike Young Reveals He 'Seemed Great' Before Sudden Death

“He seemed great and he seemed excited about going on the road,” Mike, a fellow comedian, told Page Six. “We had West Palm Beach lined up in a week and we were about to take off from there.”

Bob seemed excited about his new material. He was excited about going on vacation with his wife pretty soon, he was excited to see his daughters. He had so much to live for and was looking forward to all of it,” Mike added.

“I am beside myself because this was completely unexpected,” he added. “His death has just blindsided everybody. But what are you going to do? I just have to take the good lessons he taught me and move on by keeping his memory alive with good words and stories.”

Mike learned of Bob‘s death from Bob‘s wife Kelly Rizzo.

“I got a call from Kelly and it was just a watershed of tears and disbelief and sadness,” he added. “When you hear someone you love passed away, especially someone as incredible as Bob, it’s unbelievably heartbreaking.”

And as for his last communication with Bob via text, Mike said, “The best thing about Bob was that he always ended every message with ‘Love you,’ so I got one last ‘Love you.’ He was all love, so I’m hanging onto that. He was one of my best friends in the entire world and I can’t tell you how much I’ll miss him.”

If you missed the news, Bob‘s autopsy was completed yesterday.
