Bill Paxton, Louise Newbury Paxton, Condolences, Welcome to the Club Nobody Wants to Join

1955 - 2017

"I'm not heavily scrutinized, I'm not dating a starlet, I'm left alone pretty much."
--Bill Paxton

Today we honor the memory of celebrity Bill Paxton and welcome Louise Newbury Paxton, his wife and widow, into the Club Nobody Wants to Join.

Bill died February 25, 2017 at age 61 from complications of surgery. He had a passion for the arts and was well respected and loved by everyone who knew him. Louise met Bill on a bus in London when she was a teenager. They were married in 1987 and have two children, James and Lydia, ages 22 and 19, respectively. Lydia attends Duke University and James is an actor.

The Paxton family has issued a statement through TMZ, "It is with heavy hearts we share the news that Bill Paxton has passed away due to complications from surgery."

To Mrs. Louise Newbury Paxton and the entire Paxton family, Griefcase extends its sincerest condolences and heartfelt best wishes for what I lovingly refer to as mourning joy, all the days of your lives.
