I just read that Patrick Swayze passed away today after his nearly two year battle with pancreatic cancer. I would be hard pressed to list Swayze's most memorable roles but, as the senior member of my generation's Brat Pack, it is safe to say that he had a lasting impression on many people. I know it's been a rough couple years and his family has endured a lot. I wish them the best and hope they realize how many people will miss that rugged charm.
Rest in peace, Patrick. Thanks for the memories.
