He could often be found flying his private jet across the ranch and was well-loved by locals. Swayze's Rancho de Dias Alegres, which translates as 'Ranch of Happy Days', was turned into a wildlife reserve and timber farm by the actor.
"Swayze loved the ranch and visited whenever he could. Swayze turned his Rancho de Dias Alegres into a wildlife preserve and timber farm, he loved the rugged mountains and canyons of his ranch and the cowboy life he led there," RadarOnline reported.
However, the actor breathed his last on Monday in Los Angeles after losing his battle with pancreatic cancer. He went public with the disease in early 2008 and repeatedly denied reports he was close to death after learning the cancer had spread to his liver.
