Remembering Stefanie Sherk: A Look Back at Her Life and Love with Demián Bichir
Together Since 2011
"A Fantastic Romance"
Bichir opened up about their relationship in a 2014 interview with the Miami Herald. "I have a fantastic romance ever since I met my girl," he said.
Choosing "Love Every Day"
When asked if marriage was on his mind, Bichir told the newspaper, "It's really hard to actually know if something is forever." He continued, "I never plan that. You have to go day-by-day. You love who you love every day, and you expect that to last forever."
Truth and Transparency
When talking about love and marriage, Bichir told the Miami Herald: "You... have to be truthful when things are not right. And that’s when instead of having 14 kids everywhere and 18 marriages you need to be smart and truthful and fair to the people you love. If you’re lucky enough to go to the next level, then that’s beautiful, too."
Sherk "passed away peacefully" on April 20, Bichir said in an April 25 Instagram post, in which he broke the news of her death. The L.A. County Medical Examiner-Coroner confirmed her death was ruled a suicide. She was 43.
Her Legacy Lives On
“It has been the saddest and toughest time of our lives and we don’t know how much time it will take for us to overcome this pain,” Bichir wrote. “Stefanie’s beautiful, angelical and talented presence will be immensely missed. We will hold Stefanie in our hearts forever.”
"My Angel and Love of My Life"
In his Instagram tribute to his late wife, Bichir wrote, "It is our sincerest hope that our beautiful Stefanie, my angel and love of my life, will rest in eternal peace." The couple had no children together.
