Grease and Taxi Star Jeff Conaway Passes Away Aged 60 After Being Taken Off Life Support

RIP Jeff Conaway: Grease Star Passed Away Aged 60

Jeff Conaway passed away last Friday; he was 60. He was hospitalised almost two weeks ago following an apparent overdose and had been in a medically induced coma. His manager Phil Brock said, “Jeff was taken off life-support [Thursday] afternoon. His family chose to take him off life-support based on advice from physicians. They thought for several days that the situation was hopeless.” The actor was beloved for his memorable roles as T-Birds member Kenickie in Grease and as Bobby Wheeler in the TV series Taxi. Stars have since started paying tributes to Jeff; John Travolta said, “(He was a) wonderful and decent man and we will miss him. My heartfelt thoughts are with his family and loved ones at this very difficult time.” Others including Eva Longoria, Miley Cyrus and Alyssa Milano showed their respect on Twitter.
