Tragically, Perry passed away at the age of 54, reportedly drowning in his hot tub at his Los Angeles home. Following his death, co-creators and executive producers of Friends expressed their deep sadness and paid tribute to the gifted comic. In his 2022 memoir, Perry expressed his desire to be remembered for the ways he helped others struggling with addiction and his establishment of a sober men's living facility called Perry House.

Besides his work on Friends, Perry ventured into playwriting in 2016 with his dark comedy play, The End of Longing. It premiered in London and showcased his talent in a different creative medium. In the wake of his death, tributes have poured in, highlighting not only Perry's comedic abilities but also his kindness as a person. He will be remembered as a brilliant talent who made the role of Chandler Bing his own, leaving an indelible mark on the world of television.
