Luke Perry’s Sudden Death Shocked Us, and Now His Net Worth Shocks Us Again
Actor Luke Perry was very well known and we had seen him grow up from a teenager in Beverly Hills, 90210 to playing a dad on the new gritty CW series Riverdale, which is loosely draws inspiration from the Archie Comics series. The actor was only 52 when he passed away on March 4th, 2019. This was full five days after Perry suffered a massive stroke that left him dealing with major complications, eventually resulting in his demise.

His children are expected to inherit the most, and he may have left behind something for his new fiancée, Wendy Madison Bauer. Wendy and Luke were all set to get married in summer of 2019, but it was never meant to be…
