William “Bill” Paxton , Dead at 61 (May 17, 1955 – February 25, 2017)
Who could forget ‘Chet’? The douch bag older brother on the 80s cult classic ‘Weird Science’, played by Bill Paxton. Bill stared in countless movies and played a diverse number of characters. He played a punk leader on ‘Terminator’, a soldier on ‘Aliens’, a storm chaser in ‘Twister’ an astronaut on ‘Apollo 13’, a treasure hunter in ‘Titanic’, and too many other roles to mention. Later on in his career, he starred in the controversial hit TV show ‘Big Love’, about polygamy. This show rattled Utah and the LDS church to the core. Polygamy is some that is kind of brushed under the carpet here in Utah.
UtahMemes.Com would like to thank Bill for his contributions to acting, directing and film. You will be missed.
Bill died from complications of surgery.
