'Deadliest Catch' Sons to Honor Dad on Thanksgiving

11/25/2010 9:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"Deadliest Catch" stars Jake and Josh Harris have made plans to return home to Washington this Thanksgiving ... where they will honor their father, Captain Phil, during an intimate gathering of friends and family ... TMZ has learned.


The "Deadliest Catch" stars wrapped up Alaskan King Crab season aboard the Cornelia Marie earlier than expected -- so the boys quickly organized a trip home to meet up with their grandfather.

We're told the family will celebrate the holiday at a family friend's home ... where they plan on honoring Phil with a night of story-telling and toasts in his honor.

Cheers to that.

Set him a place at the table with his coffee cup, a shot of whiskey and his pack of cigarettes next to it.

Captain Phil lived life his way and though he knew the consequences of his lifestyle, he also took responsibility for all of it. If that's his choice, toast it, honor it and respect his memory. If you listen real close, you'll hear that great laugh, the cough and the teasing of his boys.

RIP Captain Phil! You will be forever missed!

The show they dedicated to Phil with Mike Rowe when they all sat around sharing memories of him was so good. He was an awesome father, friend, just a good man. His sons are lucky to have had such an awesome Dad. It's nice they respect his memory and life this way. He apparently instilled some great values in his sons.

They should have used his body as crab bait. He would have wanted it that way.His sons finishing early, one can't help but think Captain Phil was helping them out.

May their memories get them through this tuff time, the first Holiday without my Mom was the hardest but know that they are looking down on you with love.

who dat    

A guy who obviously never exercised. Sat on his ass. Drank coffee and smoked like a chimney. You're surprised he's dead. I'm not.

There are good ships and wood ships, and ships that sail the seas. But the best ships are FRIENDSHIPS and may they always be!
