Patrick Swayze Has Passed Away

September 14, 2009 / Posted by:

Well, this is a hard one. The summer of death has taken yet another piece of my 80s childhood, because Patrick Swayze has jazz walked all the way to heaven where there are no corners. 🙁

Patrick died of pancreatic cancer today. He was only 57. Patrick’s rep issued this statement:

Patrick Swayze passed away peacefully today with family at his side after facing the challenges of his illness for the last 20 months.”

I need to thank Patrick for The Outsiders, Road House (YES!), Ghost, Point Break, To Wong Foo and of course, the masterpiece of all masterpieces Dirty Dancing. Seriously, I wore my VHS copy of that OUT.

Rest in peace, Patrick. Nobody did it like you.

And now I must go choreograph a dance tribute to “She’s Like The Wind.”
