NASHVILLE Flipped star Troy Shafer has died aged 38 as devastated family say the presenter was "fit and healthy" before his death.

The TV star, who presented the DIY Network series about restoring historic homes, passed away at the end of April.

According to TMZ, he didn't have any known medical conditions so his family are trying to piece together how he died.

He died on April 28 in Pennsylvania and was last week laid to rest with a "small private burial", the site reports.

His brother Tim said an autopsy wasn't performed but a toxicology report has been carried out.

Troy made his name as a construction worker on Nashville Flipped.

The show focused on homes from the 1800s and early 1900s and was launched in 2016 with Troy and co-stars Rob Kuskin and Sean Roberge at the helm.

Married Troy graduated from Penn State University and moved to Nashville ten years to become a singer.

When that failed, he fell back on construction and was known on the show for the fact he "saved, restored and flipped dozens of historic homes in Nashville".

The show's website says: "Troy also specializes in creating beautiful era-specific custom pieces for clients who own historic properties."
