Brown’s Kids Took to Instagram to Mourn Their Father’s Passing

Following the passing of their father, some of Brown’s children mourned his death and honored his life with sweet posts on social media.

Brown’s son Bear confirmed the news of his passing on Instagram, writing, “We are heartbroken to announce that our beloved patriarch Billy Brown passed away last night after suffering from a seizure.” In the post, he reflected on the loss his whole family would feel in the wake of his father’s death: “He was our best friend – a wonderful and loving dad, granddad and husband and he will be dearly missed. He lived his life on his terms, off the grid and off the land and taught us to live like that as well. We plan to honor his legacy going forward, and to continue with his dream. We ask for privacy and prayers during this painful time! God bless everyone!!!”

Like her brother, Brown’s daughter Rain also took to social media to pay tribute to her late father. In a post, she wrote, “I lost a true friend. Not forever, but only in this world. Please hold my family in your thoughts and prayers, especially my mother. Please hold your family tight for me. Words cannot express how wonderful he was and is. But I will say, the closest thing to an angel I’ve ever known. God bless you da I love and miss you dearly. You will always be my hero. God bless everyone.”

Brown Also Had an Estranged Daughter Named Twila

In addition to his 7 children with his wife Ami, In Touch reports that Brown also had an estranged daughter, Twila, from his first marriage to his ex Brenda Brown. Twila was introduced on Alaskan Bush People as Brown’s secret child in 2016, and it was promoted as the first time the father and daughter had seen each other in 30 years. Twila otherwise appeared to keep her life separate from her half-siblings and her late father, who was absent for much of her life.

According to In Touch, Twila appeared to throw shade at her distant family on social media. In a post, she wrote, ““I’ve never been the average person, walking with the herd or conforming to the masses. At some point thinking I was somewhat abnormal according to the ‘normal.'” Continuing, she added, “So I had an Epiphany (sic) today after reading a few things, that IM (sic) ACTUALLY THE NORMAL ONE IN MY D.N.A. Lineage! Normal, average and boring never felt so good.”

Twila has a daughter named Bronte Byars. In addition to Bronte, Billy Brown had 2 other grandchildren. His son Bear has a child named River with his wife Raiven Adams, and his son Noah has a son Elijah with wife Rhain Alisha. His son Gabe is currently expecting a child with Raquell Parilla.
