Actor Patrick Swayze has succumbed to a two-year battle with pancreatic cancer in his home this afternoon.  This shortly followed his decision to refuse hospital treatment, opting instead to be amongst family and friends for his final hours.  He was currently working on a memoir, and had recently halted production on his A&E drama, "The Beast." Swayze was best known for his iconic rolls in "Dirty Dancing" and "Road House;" he is survived by his wife, Lisa Niemi.
