Nick McGrath, The seventh generation of fishermen who played in “The Deadliest Catch”
; has passed away…TMZ understands.
The medical examiner and family told TMZ…Nick died in Nashville on Sunday. The cause of death has not yet been determined.
Nick appeared on the show for many years in 78 episodes from 2013 to 2020.
Nick’s family has a legendary ocean story. His uncle worked on the first ship in the American crab industry. His two aunts were crabs… After the ship sank, one of them got lost in the sea.
As for Nick… he has been involved since he was 13 years old. Nick quickly won the victory and drove Cape Caution… and finally upgraded to Xiawan.
Nick is an indomitable figure on board. Nothing can stop him…no pain, nothing. Even if the ship had a dangerous mechanical failure, he never gave up.
He was struggling for many years due to alcohol and drug addiction…The situation became so bad that he was banned from participating in the 13th season and eventually recovered. He said he drank half a gallon of vodka and shot one gram of methamphetamine and 2 grams of heroin in one day. He tried to stay awake and said he was trying to motivate others to stay healthy.
The show has its share of tragedy. We broke this story… Mahlon Reyes Died in August heart attack.
