Bob Saget was surrounded by family and friends as he was laid to rest Friday.

A private memorial service for Saget was held in Los Angeles five days after the actor died, People reported. The "Full House" star was found dead in his hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, Florida, Sunday while he was on his 2022 comedy tour. He was 65.

His funeral was held at Mt. Sinai Memorial Park Cemetery in the Hollywood Hills, and at least 300 people were there to pay their respects, TMZ reported.

In attendance were Saget's friends and family, including the late actor's wife Kelly Rizzo and his "Full House" co-stars John Stamos, Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Dave Coulier, Lori Loughlin and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

Stamos' wife Caitlin McHugh, Loughlin's husband Mossimo Giannulli, Jeff Ross, John Mayer, Jimmy Kimmel, Dave Chappelle, Judd Apatow, Norman Lear, Kathy Griffin and Jonathan Silverman were also present. 

Mayer, Stamos, Lear, Coulier, Ross, Apatow, Ted Sarandos and Steve Hale served as the pallbearers, according to TMZ.

Earlier that day, Stamos took to Twitter to express how difficult the day was for him.

"Today will be the hardest day of my life. God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can and wisdom to know the difference," he wrote.

Saget's widow, Rizzo, responded to Stamos' post, writing, "I love you, brother."

Saget is survived by his wife Rizzo, whom he wed in 2018, and his three daughters Aubrey, 34, Lara, 32, and Jennifer, 29, with ex-wife Sherri Kramer.

The actor's family earlier released a statement saying they were "devastated" by his sudden death.

"He was everything to us and we want you to know how much he loved his fans, performing live and bringing people from all walks of life together with laughter," the statement read. "Though we ask for privacy at this time, we invite you to join us in remembering the love and laughter that Bob brought to the world."

Authorities announced Monday that Saget's autopsy was completed. The report indicated that there is currently no evidence of foul play or drug use.

While his official cause of death has not yet been announced, law enforcement investigating Saget's death noticed signs pointing to a heart attack or stroke, TMZ previously reported.

Cameron Bure, who played Saget's on-screen daughter in "Full House" and its sequel "Fuller House," posted several tributes to the late star on social media following his death.

"Oh, Bob. Why'd you have to leave us so soon? We are all family, but you were the glue," Cameron Bure wrote alongside a photo of her hugging Saget Tuesday. "The sticky, messy, squishy, sweet, lovable glue. My childhood is wrapped up in you, my formative teenaged years and the rest of adulthood."

She added, "You taught me to feel deeply at such a young age. You were never afraid or ashamed to share your emotions, to cry, to love, to laugh and say it out loud."
