Patrick Swayze 1952-2009

Patrick & Lisa: A Love Story

Soulmates and life partners, Swayze and his wife were each other's pillars of strength during 34 years of marriage


The pair had the opportunity to costar in several projects, including 1987's action film Steel Dawn. And Patrick was one of Lisa's biggest fans. When she joined the cast of the Broadway musical The Will Rogers Follies in May 1993, he was there to cheer her on – even surprising her onstage with a cake on opening night, which happened to be her 37th birthday.
