Captain Keith Colburn Mourns the Loss of "Dear Friend" Michael "Bear" Rogers

By

Deadliest Catch fans definitely know the name of Michael "Bear" Rogers — the man was a legend on the water and his personality resonated with viewers at home who, for years, watched The Wizard's toil to bring in mounds of delicious protein from the sea on a daily basis.

The former deck boss for the vessel was also a friend and mentor of Captain Keith Colburn, who took his passing exceptionally hard.

Captain Keith shares touching tribute to Michael "Bear" Rogers.

Keith shared the news on social media, along with stories about the Crab King himself:

"On July 16, Michael "Bear" Rogers, father, son, husband, brother, and friend passed from this world into the next. Bear was the deck boss on the F/V Wizard when a green kid from Tahoe stepped on the Wizard’s deck for the first time."
