Luke Perry: Dead—A Final Goodbye With Family By His Side


Luke Perry is dead. The actor never recovered from a stroke. He passed away on Monday. TV Crime Sky reported last week that the 90210 actor suffered a massive stroke at his Sherman Oaks home in California. 911 operators were dispatched to Luke Perry’s house, where he was found responsive at first. Once he made it to the hospital, his situation worsened. Doctors placed him in an induced coma. But his condition never improved.

Luke Perry spent his last moments at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Burbank with his whole family around him for a final goodbye. Mourning his death are Wendy Madison Bauer, his fiance, Minnie Sharp, his ex-wife, his children Jack and Sophie, two siblings—Tom Perry and Amy Coder, and his mother and stepfather—Ann and Steve Bennett.

Accepting that Luke Perry is dead at 52 is a heavy blow for former 1990s teens who swooned over Perry’s good looks on the television show 90210. Many will always remember him as “Dylan.”


Fans reactions to Luke Perry’s Death

Ashley Allgood My heart is broken 😢
Crystal Everett My first crush. RIH Luke 💔
Susan Mueller This is just awful. He was my favorite on 90210, and he did such a good job as Lane Frost in 8 Seconds. So young, so sad. Prayers for his kids and family. 😢💔
Patti Hall Lehman I was hoping he would too. So sad… young.


Before Luke Perry’s death, an announcement was made about a 90210 reboot with some of the original cast members. Perry hadn’t made a permanent decision about signing on.


From TMZ,

“Born in Mansfield, Ohio … Luke had a prolific acting career on TV and in movies — getting his start in the early ’80s — and became a household name on ‘90210.’ After that, his career exploded. Most recently he’s had a starring role as Archie’s dad on CW’s hit show, “Riverdale.”
