“Luke was everything you would hope he would be: an incredibly caring, consummate professional with a giant heart, and a true friend to all,” commented the producers of “Riverdale”. “A father figure and mentor to the show’s young cast, Luke was incredibly generous, and he infused the set with love and kindness.”


Perry’s Riverdale co-stars wanted to show him emotional support and give him recognition for his amazing efforts on social media. Actor, Molly Ringwald, stars as the wife of Fred Andrews in “Riverdale”,  “My heart is broken. I will miss you so much Luke Perry. Sending all my love to your family. #LukePerry”.


According to the death certificate help by CNN, Luke Perry was recently buried in Tennessee earlier this week.


“I’m lucky: I always wanted to be an actor. But I never felt the need to be in with the crowd. I didn’t mind being on the outside. I was always looking forward or upwards, not in.” Luke Perry will be remembered by his love for others and the effect he had on the people in his life.
