One of the stars of A&E’s Shipping Wars, Roy Garber, died Jan. 18 of a heart attack. He was 49. 

Garber was one of several transporters in the show that would bid for loads on uShip, and according to an ABC article, he gained fame as a “fix-it-all transporter.”

Garber owned and operated Arbie’s Team Transport, based in New Hampshire.

uShip released a statement this weekend, saying those at the company are “shocked and incredibly saddened:” 

While millions of Shipping Wars viewers will remember Roy as a bigger-than-life personality who knew what it took to get the delivery job done, many of us in the uShip family knew him as a personal friend.  He spent considerable time at our Austin headquarters, served as company spokesperson and was a long-time service provider on our site.  Our hearts, prayers and condolences go out to his family at this difficult time.”
