His father died of a heart attack when he was 35. Luke Perry was one of my first TV crushes as a preteen. May he rest in peace.

Looking at some of his recent pictures, and hearing his friends/family describe how bad the stroke was, I had a bad intuition. Major strokes (unlike mini strokes) take long time recovery and have an unpredictable long term prognosis. I didnít know things would go south so soon though.

Another 1990s icon has passed on (along with Keith Flint recently), while I'm still trying to process the 90s as "a really long time ago." The further into adulthood you go, life just starts to blur together.

*RIP*


Wow, the falling off the perches is going into overdrive. Mark Hollis from Talk, Talk, now Luke Perry, and both so young.


Still for those whose decades were the 1980's and 1990's it is a rather grim reminder we all are getting on.

Very sad. I LOVED "Beverly Hills, 90210" when I was in junior high and he was really good on "Riverdale."

The sad reality is that the shows I loved and watched growing up, the actors are all older than me to begin with, so there will be many of this same story as the years go by.

Luke was a generation X icon and 90210 was part of many young people's life. I too watched the show regularly. Sad day RIP Luke Perry.

15-20% of strokes occur to people under the age of 50.

We should all be aware.

My daughter and I watched this show together faithfully every week "back in the day." Now her generation is starting to die off, mine has been for awhile now. Time stands still for no one...........

Was Luke a tobacco smoker? Here's some info on known causes of strokes.

High blood pressure.
Your doctor may call it hypertension. It's the biggest cause of strokes. If your blood pressure is typically 140/90 or higher, your doctor will discuss treatments with you.

Tobacco. Smoking or chewing it raises your odds of a stroke. Nicotine makes your blood pressure go up. Cigarette smoke causes a fatty buildup in your main neck artery. It also thickens your blood and makes it more likely to clot. Even secondhand smoke can affect you.
