Garry Chapman is his father's pride. Even though his father introduced him to the entertainment industry at a young age, he chose a different path.


Garry is Duane and Beth Chapman's son. He comes from a big family but still maintains a close relationship with some of his siblings. Duane, famously known as "Dog," once paid a sweet tribute to his son and said he was proud of him.

When Garry was involved in an accident, his father and stepmother were there for him and gave him all the support he needed.


Young Garry Works as a Sheriff

Garry was introduced to the spotlight at a young age when he appeared on his father's reality show "Dog the Bounty Hunter," but he pursued a different career and now works as a sheriff. In 2021, Garry told his followers on Instagram that he was ready for his first workday of 2021.

Beth Chapman's son also shared important life lessons with his fans as he contemplated the new year. Garry has a massive following on his IG page; as of this writing, he has 76k followers.

In 2020, Garry got involved in a horrible road accident that hospitalized him for a day. Beth and Dog's youngest son Garry was rushed into the emergency room after his four-wheeler was crushed. After the accident, Garry suffered a concussion and a slight fracture and was discharged a day later.


In an interview, Garry's father talked about the terrifying incident and how his other children were helping him to heal. A few days after Garry left the hospital, he honored his mom in a captivating Instagram post.

Wesley Chapman is Dog's second child with Tegnell. He was born in 1980 but didn't grow up with his father.

Garry's Father Remarried After His Wife's Death

Ten months after Garry's mother died, his father had already found a new wife. Dog married Francie Frane in September 2021 in an intimate ceremony attended by close family and friends. While Garry was among the attendees, his two sisters, Cecily and Bonnie, were not invited to the wedding.


Garry's sisters told reporters that their father did not invite them to the wedding because they reminded him of Beth. When reporters contacted Garry's father, he declined to comment.

Garry has a special bond with his father. The "Hawaii Five-O" actor who appeared alongside Jorge Garcia and Scott Caan, occasionally pays sweet tribute to his son. For instance, in 2020, Garry's father shared a rare photo of him on his Instagram and confessed how proud he was of his son.

The photo showed Garry in a cowboy outfit while riding a horse. Dog gave his son some fatherly advice, encouraging him to be strong and never let anything get in his way.


Garry Never Forgets to Pay Tribute to His Late Mother

Garry's mother died in June 2019 after a long battle with throat cancer. Garry's sister, Bonnie, revealed that their mother choked before falling into a coma. Beth's death devastated her family, and it took them time to come to terms with her demise.

Garry's mother was diagnosed with stage 2 cancer in November 2017 and had a successful surgery. But in 2019, she began chemotherapy after doctors told her the cancer had returned.

Since then, Garry's mother had several hospital admissions until June 2019, when she went into a coma. Beth died at Queens Medical Center, Honolulu, surrounded by her loved ones.


Garry was deeply affected by his mother's death; thankfully, he had his sister's support. Cecily hopped on a nine-hour flight from Chicago to Hawaii and then took a six-hour train to Michigan to visit Garry.

Cecily said she hadn't seen her brother since their mother's funeral and was excited to visit him. She said during her visit, she wanted to care for Garry by making him good food and cleaning his house. Often, Garry pays sweet tributes to his mom and shares throwback photos of the fantastic moments they shared when she was still alive.

In one of his posts, he referred to his mother as his best friend and biggest supporter. He said that even though his mother was gone, he still held a special place in his heart for her.


Garry's Dad Fathered a Lot of Children with Different Women

Beth Chapman's son comes from a big family; his father has many children from different women. Christopher Michael Hecht is Dog's oldest son, born in July 1969. The reality TV star and his then-girlfriend Debbie White had Hecht out of wedlock—at the time, Dog was still a teenager.

Duane 'The Dog' Chapman and his first wife, La Fonda Sue Darnell, welcomed their first child, Duane Lee Chapman II. Duane was named after Dog and is his second child. Duane took part in the family's reality show but exited in 2012.

Leland Chapman is Dog's second child with Darnell. He was born in 1974 and is also in the bounty-hunting business. Like his older brother, Leland exited the family's show in 2012. Zebadiah Chapman was Dog's first daughter, whom he shared with his second wife, Ann Tegnell. Unfortunately, she passed on a month after her birth.


Wesley Chapman is Dog's second child with Tegnell. He was born in 1980 but didn't grow up with his father. The pair reconnected when Wesley was 38, and he shared a photo of their reunion on Instagram.

James Robert Chapman is Dog's third child with Tegnell, born in March 1982. Less is known about him since he likes to live a private life. Barbara Katie Chapman is Dog's first child with his third wife, Lyssa Rae Brittain. She was born in 1982 but unfortunately died in a car accident in 2006, aged 23.

Tucker Dee Chapman was born in 1983. He is Dog's and Brittain's second child. He was arrested in 2007 on charges of armed robbery and sentenced to 18 years in prison but was released after four years.

Lyssa is Dog's and Brittain's third child. She was born in 1987 and named after her mom. Besides Garry, Dog shared daughter Bonnie and stepdaughter Cecily with his fourth wife, Beth.
