Patrick Swayze was a great actor and we all know him from Johnny Castle in Dirty Dancing. All his fans and people around the world still mourn him today.
He passed away from cancer at the age of just 57, in 2009. Patrick’s legacy lives on, as he had a great career, being nominated for Golden Globes and Academy Awards. He was also awarded a star in Hollywood’s Hall of Fame.
Patrick had a love story with his wife Lisa Niemi and it is just perfect. In one of his ballet classes, he saw a girl that he couldn’t take his eyes off. He didn’t know he met the love of his life.
He acted in many movies, but the best was Dirty Dancing. He was also awarded a second Golden Globe for his role in Ghost.
He met Lisa Niemi when she was just 15 and he was 18 years old. As years passed, he found out that she liked him too.
They became a couple and fell in love deeply. Even though he became a worldwide superstar, their love didn’t change.
The duo married on June 12, 1975, and stood out in Hollywood as a fairytale romance. It just missed one thing, they didn’t have children.
They longed to start a family, and Lisa became pregnant, but she miscarried. It broke their heart.
They were considering adoption. Patrick had a dream of being a father, and he wanted it very much.
He would have been a great dad, says his brother. Patrick continued to shine, but fame didn’t matter to him.
It was very tragic that their perfect love was to end in mourning. He was diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer in 2007.
It was one of the toughest moments of their life. He passed away two years later on September 14, 2009, at the age of 57.
He left more than $40 million to his wife and set a monthly allowance for his mother. Lisa sold his movie memorabilia on eBay and his leather jacket from Dirty Dancing.
Even though Lisa remarried, she still shows her love for her late husband Patrick Swayze. On the 11th anniversary of his passing, she paid tribute to Instagram with an emotional post about him.
‘Celebrating a sensitive, strong, and special man on this 11th anniversary of his passing. He is so missed. I am grateful for what we had together. Blessed for this journey,’ Lisa wrote.
