Patrick Swayze Dies of Pancreatic Cancer at 57

We are losing our Hollywood Icons folks. There is few role models for our children in Hollywood left. My Uncooperative Husband and our generation will officially be the last generation to have good messages from what we view on the "big screen". God bless you Patrick, may your journey home be swift.

From The AP :

LOS ANGELES — Patrick Swayze personified a particular kind of masculine grace both on and off screen, from his roles in films like "Dirty Dancing" and "Ghost" to the way he carried himself in his long fight with pancreatic cancer.

Swayze died from the illness on Monday in Los Angeles, his publicist said. He was 57.

"Patrick Swayze passed away peacefully today with family at his side after facing the challenges of his illness for the last 20 months," Annett Wolf said in a statement Monday evening. She declined to give details.

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