For the Wolf Pack family from the Discovery Channel show “Alaskan Bush People,” this is their very first Father’s Day without patriarch Billy Brown.
Noah Brown, one of the seven kids in the “Alaskan Bush People” family, posted a sweet family photo to honor his dad on Father’s Day. He posted the photo on the joint Instagram account he shares with his wife, Rhain Alicia.
He captioned the precious photo, “Happy Dad’s day, miss you Da.” The photo features the couple’s first child together, Elijah Connor, in his all-red snow attire. He was the very first grandchild for Ami and Billy Brown.
Billy Brown was ecstatic about the birth of his very first grandchild. “The day is finally here – we’re grandparents! Ami is over the moon and we all feel so blessed. We can’t wait to meet the handsome young man and have them all back on the mountain soon,” Brown said in a statement to People in 2019.
Noah Brown isn’t the only member of the family to reflect on the huge gap Billy Brown left behind. Last week was Bear Brown’s birthday and he penned a message about missing the “Alaskan Bush People” dad for the big event.
“Today is the first time in 34 years that my dad won’t be around for my birthday, I miss him so much! I wish I could talk with him again, I wish I could give him a hug! This year has been the hardest of my life!”I appreciate everyone who has stuck with me and with my family! I’m gonna still try to have as much fun today as I can!” Brown said on Instagram.
Billy Brown from “Alaskan Bush People” passed away on February 8 after having a seizure. He was 68 when he died. The Discovery Channel tweeted regarding his death saying, “We are devastated to hear of Billy Brown’s sudden passing. He has been part of the Discovery family for years — a trailblazer, a lovely man, and most definitely one of a kind … Our heart is with his family and those that knew him and loved him as they deal with this devastating loss.”
Noah and Rhain are now expecting their second child, which they also shared on social media. The couple and their child are not currently living on the “Alaskan Bush People” homestead. Instead, the two are renting a home after losing all their possessions during the Palmer Mountain wildfire. The North Star Ranch will always be considered home, but they had to make a tough choice to go elsewhere.
The “Alaskan Bush People” family has their fair share of drama as well. Specifically, Matt Brown shared claims that his parents and the production team got him addicted to cocaine. He also stated that the show was a lie or a farce.
Meanwhile, there is no word on when or if “Alaskan Bush People” will be returning.
