Publicist: Patrick Swayze dies at 57

Too sad, I liked this guy a lot, as he was one of the gang of male actors from my age group who all started out as young actors together in the movie adaptation of the Outsiders, he as the oldest brother and friend of Tom Cruise, Ralph Maccio, Emilio Estevez,and Matt Dillon .... obviously going on to make other great movies, 3 of which happen to be favorites of mine, Ghost, Roadhouse and Point Break.

This was one of the lighter moments of his excellent career in the land of loons which he was not one of thank the lord above

He will obviously be missed but thanks to his contributions to entertainment remembered for a long time.

The end scene and line of the movie Ghost couldn't be more appropriate.....

..."see ya.......Ditto".... :>(

Fans of the actor were saddened to learn in March 2008 that Swayze was suffering from a particularly deadly form of cancer. He kept working despite the diagnosis, putting together a memoir with his wife and shooting 'The Beast,' an A&E drama series for which he had already made the pilot.

Swayze said he opted not to use painkilling drugs while making 'The Beast' because they would have taken the edge off his performance. The show drew a respectable 1.3 million viewers when the 13 episodes ran in 2009, but A&E said it had reluctantly decided not to renew it for a second season.

When he first went public with the illness, some reports gave him only weeks to live, but his doctor said his situation was 'considerably more optimistic' than that. Swayze acknowledged that time might be running out given the grim nature" read more
