The comedian, best known for his role as doting dad Danny Tanner on the '90s sitcom and its '10s sequel, Fuller House, has received plenty of tributes from fellow cast members such as John Stamos, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and more. 

And since Full House was all about togetherness and showing those you love how much you appreciate them, Bob's co-stars have a very special ask for fans.

"Thirty-five years ago, we came together as a TV family, but we became a real family. And now we grieve as a family," they wrote on John's Instagram, sharing a photo of featuring Bob, Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibler), Candace Cameron Bure (D.J. Tanner), Scott Weinger (Steve Hale), Lori Loughlin (Becky Katsopolis), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner), John and Dave Coulier (Joey Gladstone), along with creator Jeff Franklin

"Bob made us laugh until we cried. Now our tears flow in sadness, but also with gratitude for all the beautiful memories of our sweet, kind, hilarious, cherished Bob. He was a brother to us guys, a father to us girls and a friend to all of us. 

"Bob, we love you dearly. We ask in Bob's honour, hug the people you love. No one gave better hugs than Bob."

John was one of the first of Bob's former co-stars and friends to mourn him after his death was announced on Sunday.

"I am broken. I am gutted," he tweeted on Jan. 9. "I am in complete and utter shock. I will never, ever have another friend like him. I love you so much, Bobby." 

He continued to memorialize the late father of three on Jan. 11, taking to Instagram to share more thoughts. 

"I'm not ready to accept that he's gone – I'm not going to say goodbye yet," John wrote. "I'm going to imagine him out there, still on the road, doing what he loves with all his heart and humour. He's standing on stage, killing! Another two-hour set in front of a couple hundred of the luckiest people on the planet. They're laughing so hard, they weep.

"On his way to the hotel, he calls his beauty, loving wife, Kelly [Rizzo, whom Bob married in 2018]. He says he feels 26 again, alive! Then asks her to fix up a picture he wants to post. She tells him it doesn't need fixing, and tells him how handsome he is. He tells her he loves her with every bit of his heart. And when he gets to the hotel to put his head on the pillow, he misses his daughters, his family, his friends. God, he loves u all so much. And he goes to sleep dreaming of when we'll all meet again – and he's smiling. I know in my heart he's smiling, still hearing the laughter from a few hours before. I'm just not ready to say goodbye yet. Maybe tomorrow. maybe." 

Mary-Kate and Ashley, who traded off playing youngest Tanner child Michelle when they were just babies and toddlers, also released a statement paying tribute to Bob after his death.

"Bob was the most loving, compassionate and generous man," they said. "We are deeply saddened that he is no longer with us, but know that he will continue to be by our side to guide us as gracefully as he always has." 

Candace called Bob "one of the best human beings" in her tribute to him. 

"I don't know what to say," she tweeted on Jan. 9. "I have no words. Bob was one of the best human beings I've ever known in my life. I loved him so much."

Dave echoed the sentiments of his other co-stars, describing himself as unbearably sad about the loss.

"My heart is broken," he tweeted. "I love you, Bob. Your forever brother, Dave."

Jodie called Bob "the best TV dad ever." Many fans would likely agree.

"There aren't enough words to express what I'm feeling today," she wrote on Instagram on Jan. 10, sharing photos from the Fuller House set. "Nor are they big enough to capture even a slice of who he was.

"One thing I do know, is that we never missed a chance to tell each other, 'I love you.' Every time we talked, there were at least 3 or 4 exchanged at the end of a conversation, whether it was text, phone call or in person. And he usually had to have the last word, 'I love you more...'"

"Bob was a wonderful human being," she continued. "A human being that could drive you nuts, at times, and he knew it, but who was so genuine that you couldn't even get that frustrated. Someone who would also call and profusely apologize for at LEAST 15 minutes if he thought he MAY have perhaps said something he shouldn't have or thought maybe he took a joke too far. 

"He was a genuinely kind spirit who made it through so much in his life, and was most happy when he was helping others. Whether it was personally or through SO many of his different avenues of philanthropy. He gave great hugs, too.

"I would always say, 'you're the best TV dad ever.' And he was.

"I'll miss you, Bob. I'll make sure to tell an inappropriate joke at your funeral. In your honour. I know you would've wanted that. But you were supposed to be here longer... How Rude."

Lori told TVLine she was "devastated" over Bob's passing.

"Bob was more than my friend; he was my family," she told the publication. "I will miss his kind heart and quick wit. Thank you for a lifetime of wonderful memories and laughter. I love you, Bobby." 

Aubrey Saget, Bob's 34-year-old daughter, also shared the last text her father ever sent her, taking to Instagram to post the message.

We miss you, Bob. We'll gladly hug our loved ones for you.
