Survivor Nicaragua contestant Dan Lembo has died at age 75.

The Brooklyn-born contestant, who competed on the 21st season of Survivor in 2010  – died at his Manhattan home on September 3, according to his obituary.

A cause of death for Dan – born Daniel Louis Lembo – has not yet been provided.

He is survived by his sons Matthew and Michael; daughters- in-law, Emily and Dana; grandchildren, Ava, Annabelle, Sailor, James, and Harper; and former spouse, Barbara.

He was remembered by his family as ‘charismatic, larger-than-life, outgoing bon vivant’ who ‘loved nothing more than spending time with his children and friends – new and old.’

‘On weekends, he enjoyed softball in Bridgehampton with friends. Daniel will be remembered as a friend to all and a father to two,’ the obituary stated.

Lembo – who was part of the Espada tribe on Survivor – was 63 when he placed 5th on the fan-favorite reality TV show, during which he lost 25lbs.

Lembo was already a millionaire when he decided to compete on Survivor, after having a successful real estate career.

‘I didn’t play Survivor for money, I wanted the adventure,’ he told People following his elimination.

‘I’m the type of guy who sees a challenge and thinks, “I could do that.” So I wanted to be part of this crazy game — and I did pretty well, I’d say! I made it really far.’
