My family is an avid watcher of the “Deadliest Catch” and we have enjoyed all the seasons of the show. We were sadden to learn of the passing of Capt Phil, he was one of our favorites, next to Sig of course. We are holding his family in our thoughts and prayers right now. I know that when he had the stroke it was during Ophelia season and he was airlifted off the boat to the hospital. His sons soon followed. All the reports had been that he was doing well since then, but this was certainly not the outcome we expected. We will miss you Capt Phil.
