Actor Bill Paxton has died at the age of 61 after complications following surgery.
I will always remember Bill through the movie Twister. Countless others became fans through his performances in The Terminator, True Lies, Apollo 13, and Titanic. You may also know him for his Emmy winning performance in the TV mini-series Hatfields and McCoys.
Bill Paxton is survived by his wife, Louise Newbury, and two children.
His family said in a statement: "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."
