After a long battle with pancreatic cancer, Patrick Swayze has died. He was 57 years old.

Patrick starred in 2 of the biggest romantic movies of all time, "Dirty Dancing" and "Ghost".  He leaves behind a wife Lisa Neimi, whom he was married to for 34 years.  Everyone who Patrick met through the years had nothing but nice things to say about him. Always on time, always professional, just a true gentleman.

We all knew his struggle with pancreatic cancer and how he was fighting it, and for a while beating it. "I'm a miracle", he proclaimed last year when he was filming a TV show for the  A& E network.  I posted a photo of Patrick Swayze about 2 weeks ago of him being escorted out of the hospital in a wheelchair he was so weak. We knew that he was going to die, it was just a matter of time, but it does not make it any less sad.

I will remember him as the last time I saw him, singing "Play That Funky Music" at The Roosevelt Hotel in 2007.

My condolences to the family and friends of Patrick Swayze. He will be missed.-Dr.FB

  1. so sad! i cant believe he died at only 57. i just watched dirty dancing last night as i had not ever heard of him before. he was such a cutie in that movie! and a greatttttt dancer, as well. i am terribly sad that he has passed away, and nobody will ever replace him in our hearts!!!!!

  2. Our most sincere condolences go to Patricks family. A dancer in a million, my old Mom of 85 have watched Dirty Dancing at least twice a month for the past few years. He always came across as a beautiful, understanding and loving man. Mom now no longer wishes to watch the movie, she and I feel so deeply sad and this great loss of one so young and talented.
    RIP Patrick, we will always love you and remember what joy you gave to so many.

  4. My condolences to the family,loved ones & fans of Patrick.
    Well it seems I won’t be getting that letter delivered. :( I had hoped to let Patrick know before he passed what an impact he made so many years ago on a young girl in Illinois.A dance and a few encouraging words changed my focus on dancing in another direction.Because of him I took ballet and I believe having that training has helped me in many other areas of life…not only dance.And I have him to thank for that.Then he was just getting started in the acting field.But to me he was a dancer with the Joffrey Ballet and I was impressed! :) Many years later I had a chance to meet him again…It was a last minute hurried thing so I did not get to say all that I would have liked to.But I finally had a picture made with him.He was a very kind,down to earth,strong man and I just wanted to let him know what a positive influence he made on me and my life.
    Thank-you for being a light in my life.

    Rest In Peace Patrick
