“My brother killed himself, and he was actually the funniest person I’ve ever known,” the star said. “My brother, Dan. I was the one who found him in my dad’s house in the basement. Part of me died that day too, because I really loved my brother.”

“I made jokes to my friends and family and the line was, ‘Boy, I definitely picked the wrong time in my life to quit drinking,'” Coulier added.

“And people laughed about it knowing I was sober. And then my dad passed away a few months ago, and I got to say everything a son could say to his dad about my pride.”
