Deadliest Catch’s Mahlon Reyes, who worked as a deckhand on the Seabrooke and Cape Caution, has died at 38 in his hometown of Whitefish, Montana. 

The late Discovery Channel star, who is survived by his wife and four children, suffered a ‘massive’ heart attack and was rushed to hospital on July 25, according to TMZ.

While his spouse told the outlet her husband initially survived, she explained he never regained consciousness and was taken off life support, surrounded by loved ones.

His death ‘completely shocked’ the family, as he did not suffer from any known pre-existing health conditions.  

The Flathead County Sheriff’s Office are working to determine the reality star’s cause of death, pending his autopsy and toxicology results. 

Reyes, who last appeared on Deadliest Catch in 2015, was reportedly in the recovery process from a torn Achilles tendon, which he suffered while crabbing.

He was planning on going back to Alaska for the beginning of the next fishing season.

To honor his memory, Reyes’ wife revealed she and his Deadliest Catch crew already have plans to spread some of his ashes in the Bering Sea. 

Deadliest Catch star Nick McGlashan took to Twitter to share a throwback image with Reyes, which showed them both standing on a boat with big smiles.

‘This place misses you. RIP Mahlon,’ he tweeted on Monday. 

Additionally, McGlashan posted a group shot on Thursday, which he captioned, ‘Family times. Laughing, crying and remembering our brother Mahlon Reyes of the Summer Bay.’

Both posts prompted condolences from fans, who were surprised to learn the tragic news.
