TV star Luke Perry, perhaps known best for his role as Dylan McKay in “Beverly Hills 90210” passed away suddenly last March at the age of 52 after suffering a stroke.
With more than two thirds of stroke victims being 65 years or older, it was certainly not something he or anyone his age could really expect or plan for. Yet, it has now been learned that Perry had indeed prepared for his end of life years earlier.
After having a cancer scare in 2015 when a colonoscopy revealed pre-cancerous growth, he did two important things—one, he continued his follow up treatment which enabled him to fully recover, and two, he made sure his two children were taken care of “just in case” by creating a will to leave his estate to them.
Perry’s actions, which according to news reports, may have also included end-of-life directives, spared his family from anguish, uncertainty and the issue of probate.
