Billy Brown from Alaskan Bush People on the Discovery channel passed away in February. It was a heartbreaking situation for the 68-year-old father of seven who became a star as the leader of his isolated wolfpack on the docuseries about his family’s isolation in Alaska.

One of his sons, Bear Brown, misses his father dearly and carries around a prized possession from him to ensure he never forgets him. Brow told Hollywood Life about the beloved item.

“I have my most prized possession of all time from my dad, which is my necklace. He gave this to me a long time ago when I was a kid and I never take it off.”

This is very cool. Like with seemingly everything that involves Alaskan Bush People and the Brown family, it was something that his late father gave to him a long time ago. There is nothing quite like a gift from dad that he expects you to cherish and hold onto for years and years. Bear obviously knew it was important, so he has ensured its safe-keeping all of these years.

The legacy of Billy Brown carries on with Bear in a variety of ways. You can see it in the man’s lifestyle of course, and even in the Alaskan Bush People star’s voice.

But What About ‘Alaskan Bush People’ Star Bear Brown Passing It on to His Son?

Bear also said, “I have a boy of my own and so I want to instill in him what my father taught me and just be the best father I can.”

This is a heartwarming thing for Bear to say. You had to wonder if this would be something he would want to pass down to his own son one day. It’s clear that the necklace meant a lot to him, and the gesture would make sense to pass down to his own son one day.

It’s just about the item for Bear and the family, though. This is about more and about Billy and what the family stands for. He finished saying,“I would say the main thing would be the Bush code. That is saying to treat everyone how you want to be treated and to live free and be free.”

How great of a message is that? The golden rule, essentially. There is all kinds of advice out there, but this is a cool example that is easy to forget. It is a message all of us Outsiders can latch onto and remember not only to treat others well and with respect but also to live free in this beautiful world.
