"I'm glad my Dad got to meet my son, his grandson, I will always remember the twinkle in his eye when he held him!"


Bear was the one who announced the passing of the patriarch. In a post, he wrote that the family was heartbroken by his death and that he would be dearly missed.

In the caption of the post, she wrote that she had lost her best friend. She asked fans to hold her family and her mother in their prayers while they went through the difficult time.

Fans shared their condolences for the Brown family in the comment section of Rain's post. In her post, she described her late dad to an angel as she wrote:

"Words cannot express how wonderful he was and is. But I will say, the closest thing to an angel I’ve ever known."


The TV show's Instagram page also shared a tribute for Billy. It shared a photo of the late patriarch, standing tall with his long white hair and mustache against a backdrop of the Alaska wilderness.

"The Alaskan Bush People" followed the lives of Billy and his wife, Ami Brown, and their children, Matt, Bam Bam, Gabe, Bear, Bird, Noah, and Rain, surviving in the wilderness of Alaska.

Fans fall in love with the quirky Brown family over the show's 12 seasons as they watched them get through the daily tasks of living in the unforgiving conditions of the icy state.

There has been discussion for the 13th season. However, it is rumored that the siblings have gone their separate ways as they have moved on and formed their own families.
