Bob Saget’s 2 Siblings Ranked Oldest To Youngest

Bob Saget was a famous comedian who was born to a Jewish family. His father was a supermarket executive known as Benjamin, while his mother, Rosalyn, worked as a hospital administrator.

If you would like to know more about their life, keep reading. Below you will find a list of Bob Saget’s siblings ranked oldest to youngest.

3. Gay Saget (January 9, 1947 – 1994)

Age at time of death: 47 Years Old
Birthplace: Pennsylvania, United States

Gay Saget was Bob’s oldest sibling. She was born on January 9, 1947, and unfortunately died at 47 years old.

Bob was traumatized by her death and opened up about it only a few days before his own death. In one of his final interviews, he extensively talked about his sister with CBS News chief medical correspondent Dr. Jon LaPook.

Gay died of an autoimmune disease known as scleroderma. People affected by this disease have hard and thickened areas of their skin and problems with their internal organs and blood vessels.

While now a lot is known about the disease and there are effective medicines currently available on the market, scleroderma was extremely difficult to treat back in the day.

Saget was together with her sister during her last moments. He declared: “It felt like, I mean, I’m going to go all ‘woo woo’ here, but it felt like the soul going past us, literally felt it. I felt my hair kind of move. You know, and being an actor, that’s a very important thing if your hair gets out of place.”

According to him, his sister managed to cope with her illness thanks to her humor. This was also extremely useful for her family to cope with her death. Throughout his career, Saget raised over $26 million for the Scleroderma Research Foundation.

During his interview with Dr. Jon LaPook, Bob commented: “It was a three-to-four-year process, and she was gone. And I couldn’t bear it (…) I can’t get the images of the end of her life out of my head, ever.”
