Patrick Swayze died today after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 57.

A career retrospective is hardly needed: If you were a teenage girl in the 1980s, you probably loved Patrick Swayze, thanks to Dirty Dancing. If you were a meathead dude with a fondness for late night TNT in the 90s, you probably loved Patrick Swayze for Road House. In between were his successes Point Break and Ghost, in addition to a ton of other memorable movies littered throughout the last three decades, including The Outsiders, Red Dawn and To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar.

He’s made a lot of bad movies, too, but somehow, most of those only endeared him to us.

Rest in peace, Bodhi.

“If you want the ultimate, you’ve got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It’s not tragic to die doing what you love.” — Point Break
