Patrick Swayze died yesterday at 57 years old after fighting cancer for over a year. The talented actor was known for his roles in such films as Dirty Dancing, Ghost, Powder Blue, and as of recent, his role in the A&E Series ‘The Beast.’
Born in Houston, Swayze will be most remembered for his role of dance instructor in Dirty Dancing. When initially diagnosed, Swayze was told he had but weeks to live, but he fought a brave fight, and died peacefully with his family at his side.
80s icon, and an actor in the midst of a comeback, it is certainly sad to see him go.
