The star changed so much that he no longer looked like himself and now looked like a totally different person. Patrick Swayze’s life was cut short by tragedy when he was only 57 years old. A few years before he died, he got the terrible news that he had pancreatic cancer. The mix of getting older and getting sick changed the once-charming Hollywood star into a frail old man.
During the 1990s, Swayze had a hard time staying away from drinking. He fell into a deep sadness after his wife lost a pregnancy, which made her unable to have children in the end. Patrick’s drinking was out of hand for years, so his family had to step in and put him in a rehab center.
Patrick tried to get back to his old life after he beat his drinking problem. He kept acting in movies and even wrote autobiographies until he was back in the hospital. There, experts found out that the cancer had spread to other parts of the body. This beloved icon died in a sad way in September 2009.
There are pictures of Swayze on the internet that were taken a few years before he died. It’s amazing how hard it is to spot him.
He has a lot of lines on his face, a tired look in his eyes, and flaws on his skin. Everyone could see that the sign of an age was going away.
