The Death Of An IRA Icon Patrick Swayze. May The Ghost Of Swayze Always Be With Us.

patrick_swayzePatrick Swayze 1952-2009

After a long and enduring battle with pancreatic cancer an IRA icon, hero, and inspiration passed away yesterday at the young age of 57. Unfortunately I wasn’t with IRA in the beginning of things to completely understand why the Swayze was so revered by original members (Jeremiah, Ibiki, Scorp, Alec, etc..) but us noobs learned quickly that the power of Swayze bested all. After all he was the only one who could take down Captain Planet and sometimes Swayze was Captain Planet! o_O  Long story… In IRA memory we thought it best to do a tribute post.


Even though Patrick Swayze has many more he’s best known for his roles in Dirty Dancing and Ghost (both awesome movies). He’s also had a prominent acting career in Broadway and television (Grease and North and South). A singer, an actor, a dancer, and a family man the Swayze could do it all. He may be gone but the ghost of Swayze will live on in the minds and hearts of all IRA members who remember the power of Swayze and in all his fans.

-R.I.P. and may the Swayze always be with you.
