Patrick Swayze

Patrick Swayze died of pancreatic cancer on Sept. 14 in Los Angeles. 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," his rep told People.com in a statement. Swayze was diagnosed in 2008, but the actor -- beloved by fans for his film roles in The Outsiders (1983), Dirty Dancing (1987), and Ghost (1990) -- fought hard. He  continued to work through chemotherapy treatment as the star of A&E's gritty FBI series The Beast. He is survived by his wife of 34 years, Lisa Niemi.
