Those who loved Luke Perry most will get a chance to come together to honor him on Saturday, April 13.
“Invitations to the private memorial service have been sent out,” a source told Us Weekly about the event, going on to give us an idea of the guest list. “Cast and crew members from Beverly Hills, 90210 [and] Riverdale have been invited. The service will be at the Warner Bros. Studios [in Hollywood].”
This confirmation comes after TMZ shared a copy of the invitation, which features a photo of Luke posing sweetly with two dogs. In addition to asking folks to RSVP by Saturday, April 6, for more details, it reads: “Please join the Perry family as we remember and celebrate the extraordinary life of Luke Perry.”
Luke died on March 4 at the age of 52, just days after he suffered a massive stroke at his Los Angeles-area home. In the days following his death, Luke’s family — including daughter Sophie and fiancée Wendy Madison Bauer — and former 90210 costars shared tributes about him and the impact he had on their lives.
Sophie has expressed that she is missing her dad “a little extra” these days while we learned that Wendy was set to say “I do” to Luke this August. The actor’s 90210 costars — including Ian Ziering, Shannen Doherty, Jason Priestley, Tiffani Thiessen and Brian Austin Green — have openly mourned the loss of their friend.
“I couldn’t be anything but an actor … I feel like I’ve had a lot of great opportunities and this is what I always wanted to do,” Luke — whose last film credit is Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming Once Upon a Time in Hollywood — said about his career choice in a timely Reelz documentary about him that aired last month.
Hopefully this private memorial service will allow those Luke left behind to grieve together in peace.
