At the beginning of last month, Billy Brown shocked his family when he passed away suddenly. His family has revealed that their “Alaskan Bush People” series will air a special tribute to him.


Billy Brown, the “Alaskan Bush People” series family patriarch, sadly passed away on February 7, 2021. The reality star died suddenly at the age of 68 after suffering a seizure.

His son, Bear Brown, took to his private Instagram account to break the news. He revealed how heartbroken his family was to have to announce the news of his father’s passing.

The post included a photo of Bear’s parents, including his mother, Ami Brown. The reality star also noted how his father had been their best friend, a loving and wonderful parent, a grandfather, and a husband.

He concluded his post by sharing how the late star would be “dearly missed.” Now, three weeks after Billy’s death, his family will be paying tribute to him on the Browns' reality show.


“People” magazine revealed that the Discovery Channel would host a new special to pay homage to the late patriarch and television personality. The special will be aptly titled “The Legacy of Billy Brown.”

According to the publication, Billy’s family will look back at their most memorable moments with the late star. A reflection would be made on the late star’s love for the wolfpack and his sense of adventure.


His family will also mourn him by sharing what they would miss the most about him. Fans will also get to see never-before-seen moments and interviews of the late patriarch.

He was described as the heart and soul of the wolfpack. The late parent’s legacy would be honored by his large family, who will continue with his dream, according to the Sunday at 8 p.m. ET episode.


Billy was the father to daughters Rain and Snowbird and sons Bear, Matt, Bam Bam, Gabe, and Noah. In the memorial clip, Bear said he’d miss the time he had with his father.

Noah shared that he would remember his father’s dream above all else. Showing how the late television star had been the head of his household, he was described as the "leader of the pack.”

The video preview of Billy’s tribute was shared last Friday. The episode will include a conversation the late star had with his oldest daughter Snowbird to mark her birthday.

On February 17, 2021, Bear also revealed on Instagram that his father got to meet his grandson before he died. The reality star shares River, 11-months-old, with Raiven Adams.
