“Trading Spaces” designer Frank Bielec has died at 72.

Bielec’s wife, Judy, told TMZ that he passed away on Friday a day after suffering a heart attack. He was first admitted to a hospital in Katy, Texas before being transferred to a Houston hospital for specialized treatment.

Judy said that the surgical team was in tears after they couldn’t save him.

Bielec appeared on the TLC show every season since it started in 2008. He was also part of the 2018 reboot.

There will not be a funeral service, but instead, Bielec will be cremated with his ashes displayed on the mantel of their home.

Bielec had many talents in life including starting out as an elementary school teacher. From there he became a florist, which he did for around 20 years.

Floral arrangements weren’t his only artistic touch; he has had pieces of art displayed in museums and started a cross-stitch business  “Mosey ‘n Me” with his wife.

Bielec’s “Trading Spaces” co-stars Vern Vip, Genevieve Gorder, Ty Pennington and Laurie Smith expressed condolences on Twitter:

Saying Goodbye to Frank Bielec was the hardest part of my time on #tradingspaces For so many reasons ! Frank made everyone smile , he was the glue that held our show together. His quick wit, amazing comments , expressions and laughter made us want to work with him everyday. I remember auditioning with him in Tennessee so many years ago he asked me to build him a box (for flowers) so I started measuring his height ..(the cameraman realized the joke and started laughing shaking the camera. It was clear Frank and I had immediate comedy chemistry on camera. I will never forget his #kindness to all #humans and all #animals His heart and hands were always full of #love When I left the show to go make #extrememakeoverhomeedition he shed tears and said “your star is too big and bright for just one sky … go shine and share it with the universe Frank made me cry that day , with tears of pride , he did it again today. Thank you frank for letting us all reflect some of your brilliant light You will be missed! @genevievegorder @johngidding @leighseaman @lauriesmithofficial @vernyipdesigns @realpaigedavis @seithg @sabrina_soto @dougwilsondesigner @hildisantotomas @bretttutor @joaniesprague @robmarish @mjcine @tlc @discoveryinctv @tv_ep_nataliefeldman @kahilee sorry if I missed a tag.

Yesterday we lost a unicorn, And we, a tight family lost our rock. To know Frank Bielec was an experience…not simply a relationship. He was terribly smart, delivered one liners that could slay a Drag Queen Army, could craft or needlepoint his way out of just about any situation in life, was a full time introverted extrovert with the deepest most honest of hearts…that drove his entire being. As the youngest and oldest designer, we had a special bond, much like siblings and we met every time we could in the place we both felt most comfortable, talking honestly, from the heart and right next to each other in almost every photo I have from that time in life. Frank was like the sun and you just wanted to be next to him, his honest thoughts and warmth. To my sweet Slavic brother, my goodness did you give the world some light…I will look for you in the birds and the sugar gliders as I know there is no peace in resting for you. I love you forever. . . . ❤️ to Judy, Matt & Family, #tradingspaces #RestInDoing #RID #trading #unicorn #family #heonlypaintedchickensONCEgetitstraightpeople
