Duane 'Dog' Chapman Pays Tribute to Beth with Compilation Video Ahead of His 1st Valentine's Day since Her Death

Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman honored the years spent with his beloved late wife Beth Chapman ahead of Valentine’s Day with a touching tribute. 

It’s the bounty hunter’s first Valentine’s Day without Beth as his wife in fourteen years. To commemorate his love for her, Duane shared a collage of captured memories throughout the years.

The slideshow feature pictures and short video clips that showed the light and love Beth both had and felt for life. 

“A lot of Valentine’s day’s memories that will last forever,” Duane captioned the tribute on social media.

It’s been less than eight months since Beth sadly passed away due to cancer on June 26 last year. And this year’s holiday of love marks one of several firsts without her. 

The 67-year-old held Beth’s hand as she died at 5:32 am, the exact same time she usually woke up to hike Koko Head mountain. Heartbroken, Duane announced the news and wrote:

“Only today, she hiked the stairway to heaven. We all love you, Beth. See you on the other side.”

In Beth’s honor, her family and friends gathered at Fort DeRussy Beach in Waikiki and held a memorial service at the Heritage Christian Center in Aurora, Colorado.

In October, Beth would have celebrated her 52nd birthday. Not having her with him to share the special day, Duane paid tribute to her on social media with the posting of a video of Beth’s appearance on his reality television show, and a sweet snap of them together.

Four months after Beth’s passing, Duane said that being “released” from marriage through the death of his spouse had his mind go “crazy.”

When the feeling subsided, he realized that he would “never love anyone else as much” as he did Beth.

Intimacy is also off the table, as the bounty hunter admitted that he doesn’t care much for it since losing Beth. Also, not anywhere near wanting physical intimacy, Duane added it’s “almost in the past right now.”

Duane Chapman also experienced his first Christmas without Beth’s holiday spirit, and he decided to change things up for the holidays.

He carried on Beth’s way of incorporating holiday cheer through loads of decorations and presents to for the tree, and of course, Santa’s cookies, but with one big difference.

The large Chapman family didn’t spend the holidays together. Instead, some of the relatives celebrated in Hawaii, while he joined other members of the family in Colorado.
