Captain Phil Harris From “Deadliest Catch” Has Died

February 10, 2010 / Posted by:

Captain Phil Harris, star of Discovery Channel’s Deadliest Catch, suffered a stroke last month in Alaska and had to be placed under a medically induced coma to stop his brain from swelling. A few days after he was hospitalized, there was a glimmer of hope that Captain Phil would survive, but unfortunately the stroke was too severe and he went off to the Cornelia Marie in the sky last night. Captain Phil’s sons delivered the sad news:

It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to our dad — Captain Phil Harris. Dad has always been a fighter and continued to be until the end. For us and the crew, he was someone who never backed down. We will remember and celebrate that strength. Thanks to everyone for their thoughts and prayers.

One of my friends is a crackhead for this show, so this news is going to make his soul attach itself to a line of lobster cages headed for the bottom of the ocean (that part always scares the shit out of me).

Rest in peace, Captain Phil.
