The Swamp People regular was pronounced dead at a Louisiana hospital on Monday (14May12), just hours after suffering multiple seizures onboard his boat on the Belle River.

And now a preliminary report from Ascension Parish coroner Dr. John Fraiche has revealed he died of natural causes.

The star will be laid to rest on Saturday (19May12), just one day after what would have been his 48th birthday, according to The Advocate of Baton Rouge. Fans are invited to take part in the service.

Guist and his brother Glenn shot to fame last year (11) as alligator hunters in the hit History Channel TV series, set among the Atchafalaya swamp community in Louisiana.
