We have sad news for fans of the Travel Channel show, Mountain Monsters. Star John “Trapper” Tice has passed away.

Trapper, 72, was a beloved member of the series that followed a team of hunters searching for answers about unexplained creatures in the Appalachian Mountains. According to a post from the network, Trapper was a leader of the AIMS group, and his presence will be sorely missed.

“We are sad to hear about the passing of John ‘Trapper’ Tice, a founding member of the AIMS team and star of Mountain Monsters,” read the Travel Channel’s Facebook tribute. “Our heart goes out to his family and friends.”

His son, John, shared additional details on Trapper’s social media, along with a heartbreaking message.

“This is Trapper’s son, John. My brother, sister and I greatly appreciate the outpouring of love and stories from friends and fans,” he wrote. “The person on the tv screen pales in comparison to the actual legend of man, father and grandfather he was. The silence of his absence in our lives is deafening. Love you dad.”

John included the link to Trapper’s obituary, which claimed he died on December 16 surrounded by loved ones at WVU Medicine Camden-Clark Medical Center. The family did not share much information about his cause of death, only mentioning that it was following a “brief illness.”

Beside Mountain Monsters, Trapper led a full life. He played football as a teen before enlisting in the United States Air Force. He was deployed to Vietnam in 1967 and was stationed there until 1968. He received several honors for his service.

Our thoughts go out to Trapper’s friends and family during this difficult time.
