May 14, 2012: We are extremely saddened to report that our friend and beloved member of the Swamp People family, Mitchell Guist, passed away earlier today at age 47. Mitchell passed on the swamp, doing what he loved. We appreciate your respect for the Guist family’s privacy and hope you join us in sending our thoughts and prayers to his brother, Glenn, and the rest of the Guist family.
Swampers through and through, Glenn and Mitchell Guist were born and raised on the bayou and lived entirely off the land. These brothers were always up to something, whether it was hunting for their dinner or making use of everything nature has to offer.
