Roy Garber, who rose to TV fame on "Shipping Wars" as the fix-it-all transporter, has died from a heart attack.

Garber was 49.

"Shipping Wars," which airs on A&E, just wrapped its fifth season last week and follows different carriers, who bid to transport items for varying sums of money. The network confirmed the news of his death over the weekend.

Garber was the owner and operator of Arbie's Team Transport in New Hampshire.

"We are deeply saddened by the loss of a member of the A&E family," the official 'Shipping Wars' Facebook page posted. "Our thoughts are with Roy's loved ones during this difficult time. He will be missed."
