Earlier this week, Perry’s 18-year-old daughter, Sophie, also addressed her father’s sudden death in an emotional Instagram post.

I made it back from Malawi just in time to be here with my family, And in the past 24 hours I have received an overwhelming amount of love and support,” Sophie captioned a photo of herself putting her arms around her father.
"I cannot individually respond to the hundreds of beautiful and heartfelt messages, but I see them, and appreciate you all for sending positivity to my family and I," she continued. "I’m not really sure what to say or do in this situation, it’s something you aren’t ever given a lesson on how to handle, especially when it’s all happening in the public eye. So bare with me and know that I am grateful for all the love. Just, being grateful quietly."
Perry, who gained fame as a teen heartthrob on "Beverly Hills, 90210," became a fan-favorite TV dad with his role as Archie's father, Fred Andrews, on the hit CW series "Riverdale."
