Actor Luke Perry was laid to rest in Tennessee on Monday, according to his death certificate obtained by USA TODAY.

The California death certificate listed a funeral home near Nashville as the business handling the burial.

Representatives for the business, Taylor Funeral Home in Dickson County, were not immediately available for comment.

Perry died March 4 after spending several days in a Los Angeles hospital following a major stroke on Feb. 27.

The death certificate, which was released Wednesday, listed an ischemic cerebrovascular accident, the most common type of stroke, as the cause of death. Perry's fiancee, Wendy Madison Bauer, was listed as next of kin.

Since the mid-'90s, Perry owned a farm in Vanleer, Tenn, roughly 50 miles west of Nashville. The Dickson County town has a population of less than 500.

According to Dickson County officials, the farm is zoned agricultural and a family cemetery would be allowed on the property. It is unknown if Perry was laid to rest there.

News of his arrival first hit the Tennessean, a part of the USA TODAY Network, in 1995 — the same year Perry ended his first run on "Beverly Hills, 90210." Over the years, he mostly kept a low-profile in his part-time home, aside from fundraising and volunteer work.

In response to the Nashville Flood of 2010, Perry teamed up with Nashville-based nonprofit Soles 4 Souls, distributing water, shoes and food to flood victims.
