Bob Saget, who died shockingly over the weekend at the age of 65, was hailed as a ‘kind soul’ by one of his exes on Instagram.

Ladies Of London star Juliet Angus shared on Instagram this week that she dated him many years ago when she was in her 20s.

‘You can get lucky to have good people come into your life to help shape who you become,’ she wrote in a memorial post.

The way they were: Bob Saget, who died shockingly over the weekend at the age of 65, was hailed as a ‘kind soul’ by his ex Juliet Angus

‘To make you better, for your next chapter, a better friend, wife, mother. Bob did that. May angels be near you old friend and may they be laughing,’ Juliet added. ‘My thoughts to his wife, children, friends, family and their broken hearts.’

Bob is survived by his three daughters – Aubrey, 34, Lara, 32, and Jennifer, 29 – as well as by his wife Kelly Rizzo whom he married in 2018.

He would have dated Juliet after 1997 when he got divorced from his first wife Sherri Kramer, with whom he shared his children.

Juliet posted several throwback shots of herself with Bob to her Insta Stories, sharing her reminiscences of him with her fans.

‘I dated some big jerks in my 20’s. He was not one of them,’ she wrote over one picture. ‘A good man. Gone too soon. Bob,’ she added with a broken heart emoji.

‘You honor and remember those that were kind and good to you. A big reminder just how damn fast and quick life goes,’ Juliet wrote over another flashback snap.

The reality star showered Bob with praise, calling him ‘a kind soul, young at heart, could make everyone laugh and one of the best friends you could have, he was loved and adored by anyone who met him.’

In a lengthy tribute to Bob she revealed that her husband Gregor Angus had informed her of the news that her ex had died.

‘I get it, he was a big part of your life in your 20’s, it’s very sad – have a cry,’ Gregor told Juliet before heading off to work.

Juliet recalled: ‘And I said “but, would you ever cry over any of your ex’s?” He said “no, never, but I know Bob was different.”‘

She wrote that Gregor ‘walked out the door and I had a cry, maybe even more than one because it’s just so damn sad. And it’s OK to be sad about an ex passing, especially if they weren’t an a**hole, that’s something to celebrate.’ 

Juliet closed out her salute to the comedian with a punchline: ‘RIP Bob, thank you for never being an a**hole to me in my 20’s.’

Bob was found dead in his hotel room bed in Orlando around 4pm EST on Sunday, sources close to the investigation told TMZ.

Although it will take 10 to 12 weeks for his official cause of death to be made public, police saw no sign of drugs or foul play and it is suspected that he succumbed to either a stroke or a heart attack.

A well-placed source told DailyMail.com: ‘There was no foul play, nothing odd at all. All we have been told is that he died in his sleep. We are all just devastated.’

The insider said: ‘I talked to him Saturday afternoon. He had a great show Saturday night. He was the most generous, lovely guy. It’s just tragic.’

Bob had battled the coronavirus and had also been vaccinated for the disease, including getting his booster shot.
