Dave Coulier – “Sobriety Helped me Grieve”

Dave Coulier says his sobriety helped him grieve the deaths of his brother, father, and Bob Saget.

In a clip of the show’s episode the actor, 62, opened up about losing his brother Dan, his father Dave, and Bob Saget, his good friend, all within a short time period — and how his sobriety has helped him grieve in a way he never knew was possible.

“I definitely went through the sorrow hat trick, so to speak,” Coulier told Hall in the clip. “My brother took his own life and was actually the funniest person I’ve ever known. I was the one who found him at my dad’s house down in the basement. A part of me died that day, as well, because I really loved my brother.”

“I made jokes to my friends and family and the line was, ‘Boy, I sure picked the wrong time in my life stopping drinking.’ And people would laugh at that knowing I was sober,” said Coulier, who up until this year was an alcoholic. “And then my father passed away a couple of months ago and I got to say all the of the things that a son could say to his father about how proud I was.”

Speaking about Saget on the nationally syndicated talk show, Coulier revealed that he actually spoke with the late comedian — who passed away in January at age 65 — on the morning that he passed.
