Capt. Phil Harris of the show Deadliest Catch died of a stroke. Damn! I like that show a lot and I liked him.

If you can do anything, STOP SMOKING! When I watched that show and watched his failing health, I would constantly see a cigarette in his mouth. It's such a shame.

most people will never quit smoking, they think it is their right.

I personally don't smoke and won't hire smokers either.

It is sad that he can not watch his boys grow and continue to mature.

What did you all think of the show? Did you like it? Do you still watch it?

The show is great and I watch it when I remember.. Its sad to see him gone now..

I am a smoker and over the years, Ive seen it grow into a huge part on how people judge you..

Ive seen first hand what smoking can do to you..

My Dad \/\/\/ below died of pancriatic cancer due to smoking and drinking..

My Step Dad had throat cancer and had his voice box removed..Niow he has a hole in his throat and pushes a plastic piece that snaps into that hole in order to talk..the cancer came back 3 times and He's beat it 3 times..

Thats all for now

I love the show. Especially since I have met many of the old hands in person when I was working in Dutch Harbor. I spent 6 years there and watched these guys come in and out in all kinds of weather. You would not catch me on one of those things. I have seen them come in covered with ice and have windows blown out of the wheel house.

/salute to Capt. Phil, my thought go out to his boys. I love show. Phil and Sig was my favorite two Captains. I hate to hear that about the guy.

WOW that must have been an amazing experience! Do any stories stand out from your time there?
