Patrick Swayze

Just heard that he's lost his battle. I only ever liked him in Ghost and Dirty Dancing but it's a shame; he was too young.

My dad died of the same thing in May 24,1997

Patrick was a good actor, I really liked the movie Dirty Dancing. His family will miss him.
Did he finish that last movie he was working on? (can't remember what it was called)

Seems many forget about his acting lead role in the mini series North & South. It's worth watching. That's when our family first noticed him and of course my daughters loved him in Dirty Dancing.
I liked him also because he avoid the Hollywood gossip machine. He was an actor and active in that profession but you never read any garbage about him. Also, he was married to the same woman for many years, his one and only wife. Sadly they had no children and now she is totally alone. God bless her.

Very talented actor, could do any kind of movie from action/adventure to romantic. He will be missed.

i'm devastated by the news, i really admired him as an actor and a man. i think he had such a kind heart and was exceptionally talented.

i thought he might win this battle but i guess he's needed elsewhere.

i especially loved him in ghost, i think anyone that has lost someone close can relate to that film. wonderful actor, amazing man.

What I understood is that he was working on a television series while battling cancer and I believed they finished the first season before he passed away. They said they will not film a second season without him. He was very ill working on it and would not take his pain medication during filming it. He was a fighter until the end.

I am not sure about a movie but he might have been working on that as well.

I really like Dirty Dancing and Ghost. He will be missed.

Who can ever forget him leaping into midair in Dirty Dancing...I truly think he was the
male dancer of our time and I wish he would have made more movies that showcased his talent.
RIP Patrick!
