Terrible news today. Not only was 90210 a staple of my youth but Luke Perry was a stellar human being and incredibly supportive father who I got to talk to on multiple occasions when he’d come watch his son wrestle. My heart breaks for @boy_myth_legend today. pic.twitter.com/5AOd112HxB— Joey Ryan (@JoeyRyanOnline) March 4, 2019
He is survived by his 21-year-old son and 18-year-old daughter from his marriage to Minnie Sharp, whom he divorced from in 2003.
