Saget played the family patriarch on the series, which ran for eight seasons beginning in 1987.
“Bob was the most loving, compassionate and generous man. 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,” the twin sisters, now 35, said in a statement to CNN. “We are thinking of his daughters, wife and family and are sending our condolences.”
Saget went on to reprise his role in the Netflix sequel “Fuller House.” The show ran from 2016 to 2020.
And while the Olsens have left acting and now helm a fashion empire, they remained close to Saget, whom they met when they started on “Full House” as infants.
