MANSFIELD, Ohio-- Sen. Sherrod Brown shared his connection Luke Perry following the actor's death on Monday.

Brown's father, Dr. Charles Brown, delivered Perry as a baby in Mansfield. Perry attended Fredericktown High School before moving to California to pursue his acting career.

“Luke Perry represented what makes our state great – generosity, humility, and a fighting spirit. Connie and I join the Mansfield and Fredericktown communities in offering our deep sympathies to Luke’s family and friends on their loss," Brown said in a statement.

He also appeared at campaign events for Brown.

Perry, best known as Dylan McKay on "Beverly Hills 90210" and Fred Andrews on "Riverdale," died at the age of 52. He suffered a massive stroke last week.
