Nicholas "Duffy" Fudge of Greenland, New Hampshire passed away on Thursday. According to Boston.com, a cause of Death was not released.

Fudge was best known for his role on the National Geographic Channel reality series "Wicked Tuna". The show is filmed in Gloucester, MA and documents several different fishing boats and their quests for Bluefin Tuna. He was the first mate on the "Pinwheel" fishing vessel.

At 28, his life was certainly cut short. He had a lot more living and fishing to do. My thoughts go out to everyone who knew and loved him. Rest in peace "Duffy".
