Patrick Swayze: 1952-2009

Patrick Swayze passed away from pancreatic cancer yesterday at the age of 57. It's been a sad year with celebrity deaths. Most of the ones that stand out have been relatively young, including Patrick Swayze. He announced his illness in early 2008 and fought it with dignity. I was truly awed by his resilience.

I remember him most in Ghost - a film I can say I've seen a least 100 times without exaggerating. I always cry at the ending.

He is survived by his wife of 34 years. Lisa Niemi, his brother Don, and his mother.

There is a great tribute to him that you can read here.
