Mahlon Reyes, best known for appearing on the Discovery Channel series Deadliest Catch, has sadly died at the age of 38.
Reyes was one of the deckhands on the crab fishing boats. He passed away last weekend after suffering a heart attack in his hometown of Whitefish, Montana.
His wife told TMZ that he suffered the heart attack on Saturday morning (July 25) and he survived, but never regained consciousness. He was surrounded by loved ones when he was removed from life support the next day.
An official cause of death has not yet been determined and the Flathead County Sheriff’s Office says that autopsy and toxicology results are pending.
Mahlon is survived by his wife and four children. We’re sending our thoughts and condolences to his loved ones during this difficult time.
Just seven months into the year, we’ve already lost so many amazing stars and we’re remembering them all.
