Former “Beverly Hills, 90210” star Ian Ziering shared his condolences for actor Luke Perry, who died March 4 after suffering a stroke.
Perry died in a Los Angeles-area hospital surrounded by his family and friends, which included his former wife Minnie Sharp, his two children, and his fiance Wendy Madison Bauer, said Arnold Robinson, his publicist.
“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. No further details will be released at this time,” Robinson told Reuters.
Last week, he was rushed to a hospital following a stroke at his home in Southern California.
Tributes have poured in, including from Ziering, on Monday.
“I will forever bask in the loving memories we’ve shared over the last thirty years. May your journey forward be enriched by the magnificent souls who have passed before you, just like you have done here, for those you leave behind,” Ziering wrote on social media.

Luke Perry was a great actor and truly one of a kind. Watching him on 90210 was one of the reasons why I wanted to move to LA. Thinking of his family and friends on and off the set. Rest in peace.
