Grease star Jeff Conaway has died. The actor was 60 years old.

He passed away several weeks after he was found unconscious in his L.A. area home, having fallen into a coma after a reported overdose.

Doctors were not able to revive him and his family recently made the gut-wrenching, but inevitable decision to take him off life support.

Jeff's struggles became public when he appeared on Celebrity Rehab in 2008 and admitted addictions to cocaine, alcohol and painkillers.

R.I.P. Jeff Conaway (1950-2011).

Jeff passed away earlier today, his manager confirms.

Born in New York City, Conaway shot to fame in the ’70s as a quintessential cocky guy: first in the internationally successful Grease and then on the TV hit Taxi.

He will be missed.
