Happy Birthday, Patrick! (August 18, 1952 – September 14, 2009)

Born August 18, 1952, Patrick Swayze was a football player in high school and then earned a gymnastics scholarship to pay for college. The movie “Dirty Dancing” in 1987 gave Swayze the chance to showcase both his acting and dancing abilities. Swayze announced to the press in March 2008 that he was suffering from inoperable stage IV pancreatic cancer. The star battled his illness for a reported 20 months, but in the end it took his life. He died at the relatively young age of 57 in September 2009. How do you best remember Patrick Swayze?
