Bio

Jeff Conaway (5 October, 1950 – 27 May, 2011) was an American actor best known for his role as Kenickie in the 1978 motion picture musical Grease.

He was also known for his role as Bobby Wheeler on the television series Taxi from 1978-1982, and as Sgt. Zack Allan (later Security Chief) on Babylon 5, from 1994-1998.

On 11 May, 2011, Conaway was found unconscious from what was initially described as an overdose of what was believed to be pain medication, and was taken to Encino Tarzana Medical Center in Encino, California, where he was listed as being in critical condition and in a coma.

After the initial reports, Dr. Drew Pinsky, who had treated Conaway for substance abuse, said the actor was suffering not from a drug overdose but rather from "pneumonia with sepsis", for which he was placed into an induced coma.

On 26 May, 2011, Conaway's family took him off life support after doctors decided there was nothing they could do to revive him. Conaway died the following morning at the age of 60.
