Actor/comedian Bob Saget was as beloved by his fans as he was by his friends.
In the wake of Saget's tragic passing, the Internet has been flooded by stories of his unending kindness and generosity.
KISS co-founder Paul Stanley added his own tribute to Saget late-Sunday, noting that while he wasn't especially close with the former Full House star, the two shared a warm relationship. Stanley noted that he long-admired Saget's drive to help others.
"A friend just reminded me, when his daughter was diagnosed with scleroderma I called Bob," Stanley wrote via Twitter, referencing Saget's place on the board of the Scleroderma Research Foundation. "I knew of his involvement with the foundation as that disease had taken his sister's life. Without hesitating Bob became a generous and an open lifeline for someone he didn't know. RIP Bob."
Stanley explained in a previous Tweet that he first crossed paths with Saget years ago when the two were recording audiobooks at the same studio.
"Beyond his character portrayals and sometimes jaw dropping humor our time together was warm, sharing stories of our lives. RIP," Stanley wrote.
Saget, 65, was found dead Sunday at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Orlando. He is survived by his wife, Kelly Rizzo, and their three children.
The circumstances of his passing are still under investigation.
