“Taxi” and reality television star Jeff Conaway has lost his long battle with living. Despite the efforts of Dr. Drew Pinsky, Conaway was placed into a medically-induced (not by himself) after a recent drug overdose. His family made the painful decision to remove his life support today.
Besides his roles on “Taxi” and his appearances on “Celebrity Rehab,” Conaway is also known as Kenickie from Grease, “Babylon 5″, “Murder, She Wrote,” and was slated to appear in a movie about the Chilean miners.
