Remembering Patrick Swayze on the first anniversary of his death
Today marks the anniversary of the passing of Patrick Swayze, who died Sept. 14, 2009, after a very public struggle with pancreatic cancer.
In his honor, here are a few clips designed to pay homage to the departed and missed star of "The Outsiders," "Ghost," "Point Break" and, of course, "Dirty Dancing."
