Actor Jeff Conaway dies at 60. You may remember him from the movies “Grease” and “Taxi” and the reality show celebrity rehab with Dr. Drew. Conaway was on life support until his family (advised by physicians) felt it was best to take him off. Jeff was taken off life support [Thursday] afternoon,” his manager, Phil Brock, told People.
“This was aspiration with overwhelming pneumonia and sepsis,” he said, a result of numerous years on prescription medications that wore out his body.
Conaway was a “wonderful and decent man and we will miss him,” Travolta said in a statement Friday. “My heartfelt thoughts are with his family and loved ones at this very difficult time.”
He died at 10:30 am Thursday he was with his sisters, wife, nieces and nephews.
May he rest in peace
