Luke Perry's will left all his assets to his children as it is revealed he died surrounded by fiancé and former wife
'Riverdale' and 'Beverly Hill 90210' star Luke Perry suffered a stroke last Wednesday and never regained consciousness from it, passing away on Monday
Luke Perry's will left everything to his two children — 21-year-old Jack and 18-year-old Sophie. The 52-year-old 'Beverly Hills, 90210' actor passed away after suffering a stroke on March 4.
He passed away leaving his two children all his assets despite the fact that he was engaged to a woman called Wendy Madison Bauer. At the time of his death, Luke was surrounded by both his children, his fiancé and his former wife Rachel Minnie Sharp. His mother Ann Bennett, stepfather Steve Bennett, his brother Tom Perry and sister Amy Coder were also present, stated a report by Radar Online.
Luke had a stroke last Wednesday and did not regain consciousness before passing away on Monday, according to a report by PEOPLE.
Luke's daughter Sophie rushed back to be by her father's side before his untimely and shocking death. Sophie had been working on Community Development in Africa when Luke suffered the stroke last week.
A close pal of Perry shared with Daily Mail, "Luke was really proud of both his son and his daughter. [Sophie] was actually in Africa helping children and had to rush home quite suddenly."
Sophie had been posting several pictures of her trip to Malawi ever since she arrived in January. Last year, she took to Instagram to talk about her trip and described it as being for "community development projects" that included "teaching teachers and water purification".
However, her trip was abruptly cut short when her father took ill and her last post was dated on the day of Luke's stroke and read, "It’s been a month and Malawi has gifted me with so so much joy, beauty, and malaria. Wouldn’t trade it [HEART EMOJIS]."

A lot has happened in this past week for me. Everything is happening so fast. I made it back from Malawi just in time to be here with my family, And in the past 24 hours I have received an overwhelming amount of love and support. I cannot individually respond to the hundreds of beautiful and heartfelt messages, but I see them, and appreciate you all for sending positivity to my family and I. I’m not really sure what to say or do in this situation, it’s something you aren’t ever given a lesson on how to handle, especially when it’s all happening in the public eye. So bear with me and know that I am grateful for all the love. Just, being grateful quietly.
Luke also leaves behind his 21-year-old son Jack whom he also had with his former wife Sharp. Ever since his death, emotional and heartfelt tributes have been pouring in with many celebrities and fans sharing stories of the actor's humble attitude and kindness over the years.
Luke's agent Arnold Robinson released a statement and said, "The family appreciates the outpouring of support and prayers that have been extended to Luke from around the world, and respectfully request privacy in this time of great mourning." Luke had been hospitalized on February 27 which was the same day that Fox announced the reboot of '90210' which would feature six of the original cast members including Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, and Tori Spelling.
