Jeff Conaway

Jeff Conaway, 60, died Friday after being taken off of life support. The actor, whose credits include the movie Grease, was in a coma for most of the month.

Older generations remember him as the funny, cocky Bobby Wheeler on Taxi. More recently he appeared on the first and second seasons of VH1’s Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew, where he was shockingly incoherent and physically weak. But he’s probably best remembered for being Kenickie, main sidekick to John Travolta’s Danny Zukco in Grease.

Travolta released a statement shortly after Conaway’s death was made official: "Jeff Conaway 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."
