He was just 40 years old and passed unexpectedly on New Year’s Eve.
If you remember, he competed during season 17 of the show, titled Survivor: Gabon, which aired in 2008.
Dan‘s fellow Gabon castmates, Randy Bailey and winner Bob Crowley, both took to social media to share their condolences.
Other contestants who also honored his memory on Twitter included Survivor: Vanuatu‘s Eliza Orlins, Survivor: Worlds Apart‘s Max Dawson, Survivor: Fji‘s Anthony Robinson, Survivor: One World‘s Christina Cha, and Survivor: Millenials v Gen X contestant Bret LaBelle.
You can see some of their tweets below.
Our thoughts continue to be with Dan‘s family and friends during this time.
It is truly a sad day for our Survivor family. Dan Kay past on 12/31/16. RIP Dan.
