According to People,
Jeff Conaway, the long-troubled actor fromÂ Grease and TV’sÂ Taxiwho waged a public battle with cocaine, painkillers and alcohol, died Friday at age 60.

“Jeff was taken off life-support [Thursday] afternoon,” his manager, Phil Brock, tells PEOPLE. “His family chose to take him off of life-support based on advice from physicians. They thought for several days that the situation was hopeless.”
