RIP Patrick Swayze 1952 – 2009

I’ll never forget the first time I saw Point Break as a kid.  I can still watch that movie to this day and remember how bad I wanted to be the extreme living / bank robbing character Bohdi.

Other movies I enjoyed was Road House (love that movie), Red DawnDirty Dancing, and even Ghost.

As much crap as people give him I always admired Patrick Swayze as an actor and more so a person.  He went through a lot of hell and managed to get through it only to be diagnosed with Stage IV pancreatic cancer.  If you want to learn a little more about Patrick Swayze check out the Wikipedia page about him.  I learned even more than I already knew by reading that.

It’s sad that he could not win the fight but honestly the guy never seemed to slow down one bit leading many to believe he was not really fighting anything at all.

RIP Patrick Swayze
