This week his former co-stars have all posted tributes to the late actor, with David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow all sharing heartfelt posts on social media.
Since his death many fans of the long-running series, which ran from 1994 until 2004, have also been expressing what the actor and his show meant to them, and now one person will be able to snap up an important piece of memorabilia after a costume worn by Perry was listed online.
Worn on the first season, the outfit consists of a dark blue shirt jacket with a geometric design and a light pair of jeans.
The shirt was custom-made for Perry and was worn in the first season episode The One With The Candy Hearts, which aired in 1995.

The one-of-a-kind ensemble also comes with a hand-drawn sketch of Perry as Chandler wearing the outfit.
It is being sold on eBay for $8,400 (£6,750) by a seller in California, who has said this is a ‘rare chance to own an original piece from this classic TV series’.

Perry was a lead member of the Friends cast alongside Courteney as Monica Geller, Matt as Joey Tribbiani, Jennifer as Rachel Green, David as Ross Geller and Lisa as Phoebe Buffay.
A few days after his death, the five other members of the beloved ensemble paid tribute to their late co-star, saying that they will ‘say more in time’.
‘We are all so utterly devastated by the loss of Matthew. We were more than just cast mates. We are a family,’ they said in a statement to People.
‘There is so much to say, but right now we’re going to take a moment to grieve and process this unfathomable loss.
‘In time we will say more, as and when we are able. For now, our thoughts and our love are with Matty’s family, his friends, and everyone who loved him around the world.’
Then, this week, they each shared individual tributes to him on social media.
The first came from Matt, 56, who wrote it was an ‘honour’ to both share the stage with Perry and call him a friend.

‘It is with a heavy heart I say goodbye. The times we had together are honestly among the favourite times of my life,’ he said.
‘It was an honour to share the stage with you and to call you my friend. I will always smile when I think of you and I’ll never forget you. Never.
‘Spread your wings and fly brother you’re finally free. Much love.’
He then jokingly added that Perry still owed him $20.
Friends is available to stream on Netflix.
