Goodbye, Phil

DaGoddess @ 23:00

Deadliest Catch will never be the same. Special condolences go out to Josh and Jake, the crew, and their friends.

The Cornelia Marie’s website is down up with info. Don’t be surprised if it crashes again though. Overloaded with visitors, I’m sure. The F/V Northwestern has a tribute up.

Phil, may God greet you with a hot cuppa Joe, a carton of smokes, and some chocolate.

You will be missed.

Statement from Discovery – Discovery mourns the loss of dear friend and colleague Captain Phil Harris. He was more than someone on our television screen. Phil was a devoted father and loyal friend to all who knew him. We will miss his straightforward honesty, wicked sense of humor and enormous heart. We share our tremendous sadness over this loss with the millions of viewers who followed Phil’s every move. We send our thoughts and prayers to Phil’s sons Josh and Jake and the Cornelia Marie crew.

Capt. Phil moments just in case you want to hear that voice again.

We will miss you, Phil.


  1. Oh no! What crappy news to wake up to this morning. :(

    My condolences to Josh & Jake, and the rest of his family, as well as all those that have worked closely with him the last several years on the show.

  2. Hits close to home. I am exactly his age, and strokes are in my family. RIP Capt. Phil

  3. That is so sad. I am not a Deadliest Catch watcher, but I know not only has his family lost a loved one, but fans of the show have also lost a friend. *sigh* My condolences to all.

  4. Capt Phil was in-studio on our local classic rock station here in Seattle back in June. He talked about his health, offered some insights about the show, and how it has impacted his personal life. Here’s 3 links to video from the show.

  5. Capt Phil was way to young. I was sorry to hear about it.
