Both their faces were covered in black masks.
They wore dark suits and appeared to embrace for some time.
Both the actor, 58, and musician were seen spending time at the home Bob shared with wife Kelly Rizzo prior to his death.
The pair – like others who visited in the wake of his passing – appeared stoic.
Stamos was met outside the house by Kelly, 42, who greeted him with a hug.
He wore a mask during their initial meeting, but was seen without it in his car looking devastated.
Stamos tweeted the morning of the funeral: “Today will be the hardest day of my life…”
Many of Bob’s co-stars and friends were in attendance at the funeral on Friday, which was held at Mount Sinai Memorial Parks at Mortuaries at the Tanach Chapel.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Jeffrey Ross, Mike Binder, Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, and Lori Loughlin were among the familiar faces spotted in the crowd.
Judd Apatow, Marc Maron, Jimmy Kimmel, Dave Chappelle, Kathy Griffin, Chris Rock and Seth Green also attended.
Mayer helped carry the coffin during the service.
A source on the scene said Kelly gave a touching speech the drew laughs as she called Bob “Batman” and described her late husband as her hero.
She said she was honored to be his wife, adding that he was her biggest critic in the kitchen and greatest supporter overall, according to the insider.
The source added: “She also joked about how he didn’t exactly know what she did for a living, she was very composed and had mourners laughing, but broke down in tears towards the end as she expressed her love for Bob.”
Paul Pressler, former president of Walt Disney Attractions, also gave a speech at the funeral, the source said.
He called the America’s Funniest Home Videos host a “brother,” giving an expletive-filled speech in which he explained everything Bob taught him through the years.
Bob’s daughters, whom he shared with ex-wife Sherri Kramer, also stepped up to the podium to give their own eulogies.
Prior to the funeral, many of the mourners who attended the funeral were seen at Kelly and Bob’s home in Brentwood, Los Angeles.
The Sheriff’s Department and fire department responded to Bob’s hotel in Orlando around 4pm on January 9 after Bob was found unresponsive inside the room by hotel staff.
Bob’s death was confirmed by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
“Earlier today, deputies were called to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes for a call about an unresponsive man in a hotel room,” the office tweeted at the time.
They added: “The man was identified as Robert Saget & pronounced deceased on scene. Detectives found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case.”
“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.”
Bob and Kelly married in 2018.
Bob had been touring the country when he died.
He was due to return home on Sunday morning. His family contacted the hotel after several unsuccessful attempts to reach him.
