Tribute to Bill Paxton
Actor Bill Paxton passed away this weekend due to complications following heart surgery at the age of 61 years old. A Texas native, Paxton had many supporting roles in films including Aliens, Terminator, Predator 2, Commando, Weird Science, Tombstone, Apollo 13, Titanic and starred in the movie Twister with Helen Hunt. His body of work included directing, founding member of the band Martini Ranch, music videos, voice over work in a video game and a lot of television work over his career. He was nominated for an Emmy for his work on Hatfield and McCoys. He is largely remembered by coworkers throughout his career as a generous, kind human being and a pleasure to work with. See Twitter for many reactions from those who worked with him; Tom Hanks and Paxton became close friends during the filming of Apollo 13 and posted a brief message about Paxton. (from imdb.com, Wikipedia.com, yahoo.com and ABC News).
Our sincerest condolences to friends, family and coworkers impacted the greatest by his passing.
