Following Matthew Perry’s untimely death, millions of fans worldwide are in sorrow together with his friends and family.
On October 28, the actor who portrayed Chandler Bing in the beloved television series Friends was discovered unconscious in the hot tub of his Los Angeles residence.
Perry reportedly drowned, but the official cause of death is still unknown. What is known is that no narcotics of any type were discovered at the location, and there is no suspicion of foul play.
According to rumors, Perry’s seven-year personal secretary, whom he dubbed Erin in his memoir Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing, made the 911 call and requested assistance.
When he was receiving treatment for his addictions, he met Erin at the rehab center where she was employed. She accepted his request to leave her current position and work for him.
She was reportedly the one who discovered the actor’s lifeless body when she returned to his residence on the day he passed away, having been out conducting errands for him.
Perry was an ardent player of pickleball, a combination of badminton, ping-pong, and tennis, before his untimely death. His pickleball partner noted that he played the game every day, sometimes even twice, and that the day of his death he appeared especially tired.
Matt Manasse, Perry’s pickleball instructor, said the late actor “genuine, compassionate, and completely authentic.”
“Matthew was an authentic, kind, and very real guy. You felt happier when you saw him or heard from him since he wanted to help everyone around him. He always made everyone laugh, so it was only fair that we returned the favor when we watched him enjoying himself while playing and competing on a pickleball court, Manasse said.
The anecdotes he would share about his life and work will be missed. It wouldn’t be ideal to overlook a word. He prayed for everyone he touched since he loved his family and friends so much. Matthew did exist. He was obviously extraordinarily gifted, but he also possessed a unique quality. You can’t see the kind of compassion he had for everyone.
A 17-year-old teenage boy who lived next door to Perry told The Sun that he and his siblings witnessed the events that followed Perry’s death firsthand.
It was quite unsettling. I witnessed it all. I’m sorry for my younger siblings. I was depressed. Although I didn’t anticipate it to happen so quickly, I did kind of expect it at the same time. He had only recently moved there, he continued, adding that he had watched the police encircle Perry’s home after seeing the ambulance pull up.
The boy went on to say that he had met Perry before and that, despite appearances, he was much friendlier.
Perry will always be regarded as a kind individual who helped anyone who asked for it. Unfortunately, he was the only one he was unable to assist.
