He shall be missed

Earlier this year, Jay and I had the privilege of meeting all of the captains from the Deadliest Catch. We were very excited about this, but we were especially excited about meeting 2 of our favorite captains, Phil and Sig. They were both very funny and answered every question Jay threw at them for his interview. All of them posed for pictures with us, cracking jokes the whole time.

Jay and I were both very sad when we heard the news that Captain Phil had suffered from a stroke on January 29, but were encouraged when we read that he was recovering quickly.

Unfortunately, he passed away yesterday from what we can assume were complications.

All I can say is that I am glad that I met such a funny man, and that he will be greatly missed. The show will never be the same for me.

I, too, shed a tear. This has always been one of my favorite shows, and Capt. Phil was one of my Favs. He will be missed.

My favorite pic we got was the one with you, me, Sig, and Johnathan, with Phil photobombing us in the background. RIP Captain.
