Update: Magnolia Voice has the story of Captain Phil Harris’ memorial.
Earlier: One day before the second annual “CatchCon,” fans of the popular Discovery Channel show ‘Deadliest Catch’ have a chance to pay tribute to the late Captain Phil Harris. Harris, 53, died in February after suffering a stroke.
The memorial will be held Friday evening at the Smith Cove Cruise Terminal at Pier 91 (2001 W Garfield St) in Magnolia at 6:30 p.m. Because of space limitations, only 2,000 people are being allowed in. “Remarks will be made from Phil’s sons, Jake and Josh Harris, several close friends and fellow fisherman, and Discovery Channel executives,” the press release states.
Parking for the memorial opens at 4 p.m. with each car costing $8. (Driving directions here.) If you can’t attend in person, Discovery.com will be streaming the service live. This is the first public memorial in remembrance of Harris.
