That's too bad. Anyone who watched the show knows that he was having some pretty serious health problems. He was one of the more enjoyable characters on "Deadliest Catch". He'll be missed. And of course, infinitely more than that, a real person that will be sorely missed by his friends and family. Not that they read this forum, but I wish them peace in dealing with their loss.
RIP Phil, RIP.
Edit: wow... had a stroke "while offloading his boat". At least it sounds like he died doing what he loved doing. Can't ask for more than that, really.
