RIP Captain Phil Harris, you leave behind Fisherman’s Sons [mp3]

Woody and I are both huge fans of Discovery Channel’s Deadliest Catch and were extremely saddened by the news that Captain of the Cornelia Marie, Phil Harris, passed away at age 53. He leaves behind two sons. There was an obvious song choice to use as a tribute.

From his kids, Jake and Josh:

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.

From Discovery Channel:

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.

From Port O’Brien:
