Despite Luke Perry’s death certificate listing his final resting place as Dickson, Tennessee, star’s burial place still remains a family secret.
The Blast reported Wednesday that the owner of the Taylor Funeral Home in Dickson, listed on Perry’s death certificate, Don Carter, denied having taken part in the actor’s burial.
While he would have “loved” to been part of process, Carter said he didn’t know why his facility, which operates the Dickson County Memorial Gardens cemetery, was listed on the paperwork.
Likewise, the Cemetery Office for the City of Dickson told the publication that Perry was not buried at the city’s other cemetery, Dickson Union Cemetery, maintained by the municipality.
Dickson’s other two funeral homes, the Dickson Funeral Home & Cremation Center and Spann Funeral Home, also told the outlet they did not handle Perry’s burials.
TMZ obtained the actor’s death certificate on March 13, with the document stating that Perry died from an ischemic cerebrovascular accident, which is also known as a stroke. Perry passed away on March 4 after suffering a massive stroke on Feb. 27. He was rushed to the hospital from his home in Sherman Oaks, California, where he was sedated by doctors.
According to the certificate, obtained by TMZ, Luke’s fiancee, Wendy Bauer, is listed as his next of kin, or “informant.” It also says Luke’s body was transported to Dickson, Tennessee and he was buried there on Monday, March 11.
Luke was a part-time resident of Tennessee, and had owned a farm there since 1995.
The 911 call from Luke Perry’s house after the actor suffered a massive stroke has been made public, with caller begging for help to come as quickly as possible. The dispatcher heard on the call peppers the caller with questions about Perry’s condition.
