While some likely know David best for his role on Port Charles, others remember the 90’s star from his key role in Beverly Hills, 90210.

Spoiler alert: the wedding never happens (she belonged with Dylan, after all) and so that was the end of Stuart.

While Shannen, who has her own health battle going on, has yet to make a statement on his passing, several other folks associated with the show have paid their respects.

Pete Ferriero — host and producer of the Beverly Hills 90210 Show podcast — actually shared a clip of David on their show, as he talked about what a wonderful time they had.
