RIP Captain Phil

Captain Phil Harris from the Cornelia Marie of Deadliest Catch fame passed away yesterday.

I don’t watch much television anymore.  At least not in a paying attention sort of way.  It may be on but mostly for background noise.  One show I do make a point of watching is Deadliest Catch.

The way I see it, it’s about people who know how to take care of themselves…who understand hard work and accept the risks they’ve chosen to take…who resent the interference of the nanny state. (And you thought it was just about crab fishing.)

Condolences to his family.

  6. We will miss Captain Phil greatly . Josh & Jake , your dad was one hell of a man and just by watching the TV show, I know he loved you both very much ! May God be with you both and may the angles be by his side . We will miss him greatly !

  7. This will probably be one of the most missed people from the show. Phil was rugged yet he had heart and all he ever wants is to see other suceed. I hope that his boys do him prowd and load and take the crew to the top. My condolences to the family and crew of the Cornelia Marie. Phil may your spirit last forever.

    Where once there stood a man who would bow down to lend a hand to his children and his childrens children. Now there is an empty void never to be replaced. Loved by all who came in contact with or had known him though his name. Phil you will never be forgotten by us. May God Bless.

  8. My heart dropped out of my chest when I heard the news come over the television that Captain Phil Harris had passed away. My heart goes out to the boys Josh and Jake. Your dad was one of those people who capture the heart of everyone. He was rough and tough when he needed to be and big as a teddy bear too. Captain Phil Harris was one of a kind and I will miss him very much. I hope that you two boys will continue working on the Cornelia Marie and take pride that your dad will be watching over you both. God Bless

  10. May you rest in peace Captain Phil with dignity
