TLC confirmed Milliken's death in a statement Tuesday.
“TLC is saddened to share that Sean Milliken has passed away,” the network said in the statement. “Viewers first met Sean in 2016 on 'My 600-lb Life' when he weighed over 900-lbs. Over the course of his weight loss journey, he victoriously lost over 400-lbs.
"TLC viewers caught up with Sean this past summer and learned that despite the loss of his mother, he was still continuing in his quest to live a healthier and happier life. TLC expresses its deepest sympathies to Sean’s friends and family at this difficult time.”
According to Milliken's father, Matt, Sean reportedly died of an infection.
