The actor had been starring in US TV show The Beast since being diagnosed with the disease. He had also planned to write a memoir2(传记,实录) with his wife.

"Patrick Swayze passed away peacefully today with family at his side after facing the challenges of his illness for the last 20 months," said a statement by Annett Wolf quoted by the Associated Press.
