Grease, Babylon 5 actor Jeff Conaway has passed away

by on May.27, 2011, under Obituaries

Actor Jeff Conaway, who starred in the movie Grease as well as the TV series Taxi and Babylon 5, passed away this morning after his family removed life support yesterday. Conaway, who had long been suffering from drug and alcohol addiction, was placed in a medically induced coma after being found unconscious on May 11th, suffering from pneumonia and sepsis. Early reports blamed a drug overdose, but this was later refuted, although reports still say that his painkiller addiction (exacerbated by both old and more recent injuries) may have contributed to him not getting medical help soon enough.

He was 60 years old.

Bobby Wheeler/Kenickie/Zack Allan, you will be missed.
