Roy Garber, one of the stars of A&E’s Shipping Wars, died on Friday of a heart attack. He was 49 years old.

Garber owned and operated Arbie’s Team Transport out of New Hampshire, was one of the show’s top earners.

“We are deeply saddened by the loss of a member of the A&E family,” the A&E network said in a statement. “Our thoughts are with Roy’s loved ones during this difficult time.  He will be missed.”

Shipping Wars just wrapped up its fifth season on Wednesday.

In case you’ve never seen Shipping Wars, the show follows a group of independent transporters who bid online to move individual’s and businesses’ merchandise. Many of the “merchandise” that gets transported on the show tends to be of the interesting variety.

A&E’s website describes Garber as a “jack of-all-trades” as well as an avid fisherman and master scuba diver.
