Perry was in the middle of his wedding preparations when he unexpectedly passed away after suffering a stroke earlier this month
'Riverdale' actor Luke Perry has reportedly been cremated and his remains have been scattered on his beloved Tennessee farm. The ashes of the actor now lay in the 380 acres of land owned by him, in Vanleer, Tennessee, where he lived on and off for more than twenty years.
According to TMZ, the late actor's death certificate listed his official cause of death as an ischemic cerebrovascular accident, and his body was subsequently taken to a funeral home in Dickson, Tennessee. The 'Beverly Hills, 90210' star remained under “heavy sedation” for five days in the hospital, before his passing away on Monday, March 4.
Reports of the former 'Beverly Hills, 90210' star being cremated comes after Don Carter, owner of the Taylor Funeral Home in Dickson, confirmed that Perry was not buried there, as per The Blast. Carter further explained that he has "no idea" why his facility is listed on Perry’s death certificate.
The media outlet also called the Cemetery Office for the City of Dickson, where it was relayed that the 'Days of Our Lives' alum was not buried at the city’s other cemetery, Dickson Union Cemetery. But now, it has been confirmed Perry's family received his ashes in Dickson and drove 13 miles north to scatter them on his farm.
The actor, as per Daily Mail, bought the farm in 1995 during the height of his '90210' fame. This was also around the same time that the actor had starred in the movie '8 Seconds' where he took on the role of a rodeo player who had a passion for cattle raising.
Perry was in the middle of his wedding preparations when he unexpectedly passed away after suffering a stroke earlier this month. The 52-year-old actor and his fiancé Wendy Madison Bauer, 44, were planning to tie the knot in a late summer wedding and had "save the date" card ready to be sent out.
It was also reported previously that the couple's card featured a grey and gold color scheme and had 'The Great Gatsby' motif. The date of the wedding was set on August 17, 2019. The card, however, did not provide further details about the ceremony.
Perry and Bauer kept their relationship private and not much is known about their relationship timeline, but in a statement, she did mention that she was with him for the past 11 years.
The couple walked the red carpet at the GLAAD Media Awards together in April 2017 and is said to have gotten engaged last year.
