I’m sad to report “Seeking Sister Wife” star Bernie McGee died suddenly on Saturday after suffering a possible heart attack/stroke.

He was 41.

The news of Bernie’s passing was revealed on Facebook when a family friend shared the sad news – with permission from Bernie’s wife, Paige McGee.

The post read:

I am posting with the permission from Paige. It is with a heavy heart to tell you all that Bernie passed away today.

Please give Paige time to be with her family, friends, and children. We just left the hospital and she is heading home. His mother is not handling this well. Paige is not either. But, she has a bunch of hands around her. 

Please keep this family in your hearts and prayers. Thank you to the ones who have supported them through this journey.

Please be patient and understanding if she does not respond to any comments or messages.

Thank you all, Jennifer.

Paige eventually took to Facebook and posted the following message:

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. Bernie was out riding his bicycle and called me, saying he wasn’t feeling well and to come pick him up.

By the time I got there, EMTs were working on him, but I could already tell. 

The coroner said he had a heat stroke/heart attack. Please bear with me. I will respond as I can.

Bernie McGee and his wife, Paige, had a polyamorous relationship and were looking for a woman to join their marriage on the TLC series, “Seeking Sister Wife.”

Below is a clip of Bernie explaining the polygamy lifestyle to his son.

Dimitri and Ashley Snowden, who also starred on the series, took to social media to pay their respects.

Bernie leaves behind his wife and four children to cherish his memory.

It’s such a sad loss for their family…especially right before Father’s Day.

My sincerest condolences and prayers to the McGee family.
