Deadliest Catch Captain Dies

Captain Phil Harris, fisherman in charge of the Cornelia Marie on the popular Discovery Channel show "Deadliest Catch," passes away late yesterday nearly two weeks after suffering a stroke on Jan. 29.
Harris was 53.
Sons Jake and Josh Harris posted this statement to
their father's Web site:
"It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to our dad -- Captain Phil Harris. Dad has always been a fighter and continued to be until the end. For us and the crew, he was someone who never backed down. We will remember and celebrate that strength. Thanks to everyone for their thoughts and prayers."
