Storage Wars star Gunter Nezhoda has died aged 67

His son confirmed the sad news

Storage Wars legend Gunter Nezhoda has sadly died aged 67.

His son Rene Nezhoda confirmed the news to TMZ, saying that his father died in his sleep in Salt Lake City after being diagnosed with lung cancer six months ago.

Gunter was said to have passed away following complications with the condition after chemotherapy left him with holes in his lungs.

Although he flew to Utah to undergo emergency surgery, the doctors told the family there was nothing else they could do.

The late star was best known for his appearance on the hit reality show Storage Wars, having starred in seven episodes between 2015 and 2019.

Before his passing, he filmed an episode alongside Rene for the upcoming season.
