As per his wishes, we cheered at the moment that he transitioned to another dimension.
I am feeling immense gratitude to have been afforded the luxury of sharing life with him/her, for learning from Alexis, for being given the gift of being able to love her/him and to be loved by him/her. He was a force.
He died as he lived, on his own terms. I am immensely grateful that it was fast and painless. It was an incredibly moving experience and I am humbled and grateful to have been able to have been with him as he began his journey onward.
Thank you, Alexis, I love you and will love you always.
As the statement did not get specific on Alexis cause of death,it has left ehr fans wondering and asking what did Alexis Arquette die of?
Alexis was born Robert Arquette in Los Angeles in 1969, and was a performer from a young age, appearing in a music video for the Tubes’ She’s a Beauty at age 12.
A versatile performer, Arquette’s big break came in the 1989 adaptation of Last Exit to Brooklyn, in which she played the trans sex worker Georgette. She was just visiting New York with her sister Patricia Arquette, who was up for a role in the film.

“They asked me if I wanted to read for a role because they knew that I’d done a drag thing at one of my friend’s clubs,” Arquette said in a 1999 Index Magazine interview. “I ended up getting the job, basically through my sister.
“If it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t have been in New York. But nobody gives you a job, you’ve got to earn it on your own. I would never want anyone to think that there’s some kind of cachet to my name.”
She also had bit roles in films such as Pulp Fiction, Bride of Chucky and as a Boy George impersonator first in the Adam Sandler comedy The Wedding Singer and again in Blended.
On Sunday, Boy George tweeted his condolences to “my sister Alexis Arquette. Another bright light gone out far too soon.”
Arquette also performed in nightclubs and cabarets, sometimes under the name Eva Destruction.
“I enjoy being a character actor, I enjoy being different in everything,” Arquette said in the 1999 Index interview. “I want a private life, I want to be able to go to 7-Eleven and not get into a fight with a guy because he saw me in a movie, or not have people hitting on me simply because they saw me in a movie. You want to be wanted for who you are, not what you’ve done or who you’ve become.”
Arquette also appeared on season six of the VH1 reality series The Surreal Life, and was credited for bringing increased awareness and visibility to the transgender community. She chronicled her transition and the process of her sex reassignment surgery in the 2007 documentary Alexis Arquette: She’s My Brother.
In their statement, the Arquettes said that their sister’s career “was cut short, not by her passing, but by her decision to live her truth and her life as a transgender woman”.
“Despite the fact that there are few parts for trans actors, she refused to play roles that were demeaning or stereotypical,” they said. “She was a vanguard in the fight for understanding and acceptance for all trans people.”

The Arquette family requested privacy, and that donations be made to organizations that support the LGBTQ community.
Among tributes paid on social media, Patricia Arquette tweeted a link to Bowie’s Starman and wrote: “Breaking through the veil singing StarMan.”
Alexis' brother, Richmond Arquette says Alexis died at 12:32 AM while listening to David Bowie's, "Starman."
Besides being the sibling of David and Patricia Arquette -- Alexis was known for her roles in "Pulp Fiction" and "The Wedding Singer," as well as being a champion for trans rights.We are losing so many celebrities this year.It is rather ironic that Alexis Arquette death occurred same year as one of her greatest heroes,David Bowie. 
Although she placed on a listing of the richest transgender activists in the world,Alexis Arquette net worth was listed as “unknown.”Her net worth was overshadowed by that of her most famous siblings, according to Celebrity Net Worth, which pegs her siblings as being worth millions.
May her soul rest in peace.
