Luke Perry’s Kids Wrote the Most Touching Father’s Day Tributes to Him After His Death

Life after losing a parent is never easy, but it can be especially difficult on a day like Father’s Day. Luke Perry’s kids celebrated their first Father’s Day without their dad, and his daughter posted a touching tribute to her late father on social media. Perry’s daughter Sophie, 19, posted a collection of photos honoring both her late father and her brother Jack, who celebrated his 22nd birthday one day before Father’s Day. “I know this is comin at u a day late but Malawian internet really didn’t want to help me out so… it is Father’s Day, and dad I miss and love you dearly,” wrote Sophie, who is currently living abroad in Africa and working on charity projects.

Sophie went on to express the love she has for her brother in the post in honor of his birthday. “But today is a special day for another reason,” she wrote. “To the brother that blows all others out of the water. To the mentor who taught me to be brave. To the boy who I wrestled with on the trampoline. To the man who is everything I ever wanted to be. Happy birthday, you beautiful beaver boy. I wish I could be with you, now more than ever. But I’ll be there soon enough, to watch you kick major ass and have all your dreams, all the dreams I had for you, come true.”

These siblings clearly have turned to each other to lean on in the wake of the loss of their father, especially on days like Father’s Day that are particularly tough to get through. Perry suffered a stroke in March that sadl yended his life at the age of 52. The late actor is survived by his two children (whom he shared with his ex-wife Minnie Sharp), his mother and his fiancée Wendy Madison Bauer. Perry had no reported health concerns prior to the news of his stroke, making his death all the more shocking and heartbreaking.

Perry’s rep released a statement following his passing, which said in part: “Actor Luke Perry, 52, passed away today after suffering a massive stroke… 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.”

Perry was best known for his acting credits on the hit 90s series 90210 and his current role on Riverdale. His impressive career includes more 95 acting credits and is also credited as a director, producer and screenwriter.

Perry left behind an incredible legacy in Hollywood, and his daughter made sure that he left his mark outside of the industry as well. Two months after his death, Sophie announced that she was opening her first preschool in Malawi to be named after her late father.
