Hollywood is in mourning over the death of Actor Jeff Conway. According to the Associated Press, Conway was taken off of Life Support on Thursday and died this morning at Encino Tarzana Medical Center. He was found unconscious from a drug overdose on May 11th and rushed to the hospital. “Conway had been treating himself with pain pills and cold medicine while in a weakened condition,” said Phil Brock, his other manager.

Jeff Conway is known for his starring roles in the legendary movie “Grease” and the hit sitcom “Taxi”.

He has had a horrible struggle with drugs and alcohol for over 20 years.   Jeff  publicly shared his battle his  on the show “Celebrity Rehab” .

A fall in 2010 caused a broken hip and other injuries that left him in more precarious health. However, he still would make appearances especially for charity events with his unforgettable smile.

Conway was born in New York City on Oct. 5, 1950, to parents who were in show business. His father was an actor, producer and agent and his mother was an actress.

He made his Broadway debut in 1960 at the age of 10 in the Pulitzer Prize-winning drama “All the Way Home.” By then his parents were divorced, and Conway had spent a great deal of time with his grandparents who lived in the Astoria section of Queens.

Many close to Jeff knew that in his struggles with his health, he had a big heart.”He’s a gentle soul with a good heart … but he’s never been able to exorcise his demons,” Brock said after Conway was hospitalized.

Jeff Conway will be truly missed by all that loved him. He is gone but definitely will never be forgotten.
