Actor Bill Paxton Dead At Age 61

(AOTN) Beloved actor Bill Paxton has passed away suddenly at the age of 61. Sources are claiming that Paxton died as a result of post-op complications after undergoing heart surgery. According to TMZ.com, the actor suffered from a fatal stroke which claimed his life.

Paxton is best known for his roles in films such as “Twister”, “Titantic”, “Aliens” and “Apollo 13”. He also starred in the HBO series “Big Love” and won an Emmy for his work on the mini-series “Hatfields and McCoys”. He was currently working on the CBS series “Training Day” at the time of his passing.

Paxton leaves behind his wife of 30 years Louise Newbury and their two children. In a statement his family says, “A loving husband and father, Bill began his career in Hollywood working on films in the art department and went on to have an illustrious career spanning four decades as a beloved and prolific actor and filmmaker.

Bill’s passion for the arts was felt by all who knew him, and his warmth and tireless energy were undeniable. We ask to please respect the family’s wish for privacy as they mourn the loss of their adored husband and father.

Our sincere condolences go out to Paxton’s family and loved ones during this incredibly difficult time.
