Patrick Swayze's body will be cremated by Friday, according to a report.

TheĀ Dirty Dancing actor died 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.

The star's ashes will be spread across his beloved ranch in New Mexico -- his favorite place in the world, according to RadarOnline.com.

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, who would often fly there in his own plane.
