Patrick Swayze Dead at the Age of 57

Patrick Swayze

It was confirmed by his publicist that Patrick Swayze, star of Dirty Dancing and thief of hearts has passed away at the age of 57 after a long public battle with pancreatic cancer. The star of TV and Movies passed with friends and family at his side. He came out last year making his illness public and bravely faced public scrutiny, showing up repeatedly on TV shows and tabloids.

Now Dirty Dancing will always be his most famous role, but this is how I will always remember him.
