RIP Mr. Swayze.

I never cared for his films or his performances, but he seemed like a very cool guy.

RIP Swayze. The last movie I saw him in was Keeping Mum and, well, he looked terrible but was charismatic.

Ahh damn, the jpeg didn't load for me last time I scrolled through. Hilarious nonetheless.

Honestly I don't know if I've ever seen a movie with Patrick Swayze in it, but RIP to him anyway. Seemed like a good dude and the way the trash magazines have been covering him lately has been an embarrassment and appalling.

Wow, first I find out that Ethan Zohn's cancer is back, and now this news. It just seems useless to try and fight cancer.

The one thing I have to admire about Patrick is even though the diagnosis was grim, he continued living his life and didn't wilt away in some hospital bed. Hell, he filmed a 13 episode TV series late last year and wrote a memoir. RIP Patrick, your finally free from the cancer.

Sad news. I never considered myself a big fan, but do recall liking Outsiders, Roadhouse and Donnie Darko. Feel for his family.

Amazing that he lasted as long as he did when he was diagnosed with cancer. The guy made some really fun movies to watch. Perhaps the only ballet dancer that could beat you into the ground.

RIP.

RIP Patrick. Gotta have respect for a guy who, after his diagnosis, still continued to live life and achieve so much.

It's a shame he had to pass away. Love him as a actor and as a person he sounded cool and humble.

RIP!

Re: AP reporting Patrick Swayze has Died

Here's an obituary about a side of Swayze I didn't know about:

Patrick Swayze, a passionate and valued member of the Arabian horse community died from pancreatic cancer complications at the age of 57.

Swayze was known to most as a dancer and actor in films such as “Dirty Dancing,” “Roadhouse” and “Ghost.” To the Arabian horse community he was an accomplished and giving horseman. An active participant at Arabian shows throughout the late '80s and early '90s, Swayze’s star power helped bring attention to the Arabian breed. Swayze’s true passion for the horse earned him utmost respect in the horse community.

Although Swayze’s bond with horses started as a child, he claimed he did not fully realize the potential relationship with a horse until later. “When you get a bond happening with a horse, it’s interesting. I was raised a cowboy and did some rodeo and stuff and thought I was a horseman. Found out I knew nothing. As I have gotten into these horses, [Arabians] I have realized how far you can go with them,” said Swayze in a 1994 video interview.

In 1991, the same year Swayze was named People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive, he bought the stallion Tammen from Tom McNair and during the next year the stallion was honored with several halter championships. “Over the years it’s happened—people gradually started seeing that I am serious about this and I care more about the horses than my little image. I am accepted now, so going grand champion there was like a big event for me,” said Swayze.

Swayze owned more than a dozen purebred Arabians and became an active breeder. Tammen, Swayze’s 1982 Champion stallion, sired 175 foals. A photograph of Swayze with Tammen was made into a poster and established as a youth fundraiser during the early '90s. The poster, now in limited supply, continues to help fund Arabian Horse Association Youth Programs.

“We at the Arabian Horse Association and our some 35,000 members mourn the loss of a great American icon, Patrick Swayze. He was an ardent lover of the Arabian horse and his passion for the breed would always spill over into the audience when he showed his beautiful horses—particularly with young people. His close friends called him ‘Buddy’ and that sentiment seemed to define his character, as I always found him to be a man of significant humility and grace. The Arabian horse has lost a dear friend and our prayers go out to his wife Lisa and family, and everyone who loved him. His significant contributions to the Arabian horse will not be forgotten,” said Lance Walters, Arabian Horse Association President.

Swayze is said to have passed away peacefully after facing the challenges of his illness for the last 20 months.
