Bob Saget From Full House and Ronnie Spector From The Ronettes Pass Away
The Full House sitcom legend Bob Saget aged 65 passed away last Sunday on the 9th of January; he is believed to have suffered a “heart attack or stroke” and recently battled Covid-19. There was also evidence that he had passed away without any suffering as he stayed in his room at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Orlando. Unfortunately, another passing away includes The Ronettes’ star Ronnie Spector who was aged 78. The American popstar was the lead singer in the 1960s girl group The Ronettes and created hit songs such as “Be My Baby”, “Baby I Love You”, and “Walking in the Rain”.
According to reports, the actor passed away in his sleep as he was “tucked in bed” when his body was discovered on Sunday the 9th of January at around 4pm EST. It is said that he had called his wife Kelly Rizzo before going to bed and even tweeted about how happy he was to be back on stage as he performed at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall in Jacksonville earlier that night.
His wife Kelly Rizzo became increasingly concerned as the following day continued on with her being unable to reach him, so she called the hotel, leading to security entering Bob Saget’s room and discovering his body. The official cause of death will not be known for 10 to 12 weeks, but the police suspect he suffered a “heart attack or stroke” in his hotel room. The investigation is currently taking place to find out what happened before his death.
A statement was released by the singer’s family stating that Ronnie Spector passed away aged 78 “after a brief battle with cancer”; the statement said, “Ronnie lived her life with a twinkle in her eye, a spunky attitude, a wicked sense of humour and a smile on her face. She was filled with love and gratitude. Her joyful sound, playful nature and magical presence will live on in all who knew, heard or saw her.”
Born in 1943 in Manhattan as Veronica Yvette Bennett, she shot to fame aged just 18 while performing with her older sister and cousin as The Ronettes. The group caught the attention of record producers while performing and went on to record hits like “Be My Baby”, “Baby I Love You”, and “Walking in the Rain”.
We hope both rest in peace and are forever remembered for their legendary work in the entertainment industry.
