In Loving Memory of Luke Perry (1966-2019)
It was earlier this year on March 4, 2019, that Luke Perry passed on. He died at the age of 52 and lives on in his two children, fiancé, and ex-wife. Who all loved him dearly, along with fellow cast members and crew of Riverdale. He’s not remembered for being a celebrity, but because everyone who has ever had the pleasure of knowing him has not said a single bad thing about him. He is very dearly loved. And it shows in how people remember him:

Thursday August 11, 2016 – Luke and I went in to spend some time with the #Riverdale writers room after our pilot was picked up. We wanted to show them love and appreciation for their hard work. He had such a big heart. We bonded immediately. He became such a dear friend to me… pic.twitter.com/NKBpsd2YG3
