Today Patrick Swayze died at age 57 after his battle with pancreatic cancer.

Personally I was never a Swayze fan, but it is certainly a sad day for his family.

2009 has definately been a bad year for the deaths of celebrities. This year so far we have seen the loss of Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, Ed McMahon, Billy Mays, Ted Kennedy, and now Patrick Swayze. Even food celebrities Oscar Meyer and the Taco Bell dog signed off this year.
