From Denny: Well, we all knew it was coming as pancreatic cancer is one of the most deadly forms of cancer. It was a miracle he lived as long as he did after diagnosis. Most patients don't make it past three months; Swayze soldiered on for another two years which is quite amazing.
I always enjoyed his dancing and he was a great guy, loved by his fellow actors as much as by the public. Here are some of the headlines about him:

To watch the rest of the group dance, of course, the profit makers disabled all the Swayze dance videos, so go to this YouTube link.
Patrick Swayze danced his way through life, into our hearts, made us laugh, gave us a lot of joy and danced on into Heaven. Rest in Peace and our prayers are with your wife and family...
