Paxton, who was 61, died on 25th of February at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
He has himself revealed on Marc Maron's "WTF" podcast last month that the reason for the persisting heart problems was a childhood bout of rheumatic fever.
"It is with heavy hearts we share the news that Bill Paxton has passed away due to complications from surgery. 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," a representative for his family had said in a statement released to a US weekly.
Paxton is most remembered for his roles in legendary movies such as Aliens, True Lies and Titanic.
