Captain Phil Harris

Captain Phil Harris (center) and the crew of the Cornelia Marie. Harris and his ship were featured on the television show Deadliest Catch and had become a favorite of the audience. Phil Harris suffered a stroke while unloading his ship on Jan. 29 and passed away on Feb. 9, 2010. This hard living, hard working man will be missed by all who knew him and those who came to know him through the show.
