Saturday, 09 Mar, 2019

A spokesperson on Monday said that the Riverdale star was surrounded by fiancee Wendy Madison Bauer, ex-wife Minnie Sharp, and children Jack and Sophie, among other family members and friends, at the time he passed.

His 21-year-old son, Jack, paid tribute to his dad via Instagram on Wednesday, writing: "He loved (and) supported me in everything, and inspired me to be the best that I could possibly be. You were that guy, that forever friend, we always had each others back & I will always remember you this way". I share my deep sadness with his family and all who loved him. Luke, I hope you know how much you meant to me, to us.

Here's what you need to know: In Chapter Forty-Nine of Riverdale, titled "Fire Walk with Me", Archie (KJ Apa) befriends an orphan named Ricky.

Ahead of tonight's episode, Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa took to Twitter to announce that this episode and the rest of the show's future seasons would be dedicated to Luke. Thank you for teaching me not only about this industry, but also about kindness and being a family and how to foster and nurture those important relationships... you were the absolute best at that. "Yet the people passing you are moving at full speed", she wrote.

I'm totally heartbroken. Luke took me under his wing the day I was cast and made me feel like I belonged.

She took to Instagram on Thursday and wrote: "My heart has been weighing heavy". His presence was healing; he had the ability to make you feel comfortable and at ease within seconds of seeing him.

Luke Perry passed away on March 4, 2019 after suffering a massive stroke.

A touching tribute accompanied the image, which read: "Luke in the middle".

Our thoughts and prayers are with Perry's family during this very hard time. "No further details will be released at this time". Shannen Doherty. who portrayed Priestley's twin sister, Brenda Walsh, and Perry's girlfriend on 90210, shared on Instagram that she too was still trying to process that she'd never get to speak to her co-star and friend again.
