Just before his tragic passing, ‘Alaskan Bush People’ patriarch Billy Brown was able to meet his grandson, River. Billy’s son, Bear Brown, recalls the “twinkle in his eyes” in this heart-wrenching tribute.
The Browns are incredibly tight-knit, as any ‘Alaskan Bush People’ fan knows. Billy and Ami have always, however, encouraged their children to follow their own paths. Just recently, their son Bear Brown and his girlfriend, Raiven Adams, had a son together. Billy Brown’s grandson, little River Anthony Brown, is a blessing to the entire family.
Thankfully, the beautiful baby boy’s arrival came before Billy’s tragic passing. Posting to his private Instagram, Bear shares the first meeting between his tiny son and a loving grandfather (Billy Brown).

As for Bear’s post, the caption reads: “I’m glad my Dad got to meet my son, his grandson, I will always remember the twinkle in his eyes when he held him! Hold tight to your loved ones! You never know when it’s the last moment you’ll get with them!”

“So glad for you…Your dad was one of a kind. I hope you kids and your fams can make his dreams come true for the ranch. That is his legacy to all of you…and in your mom’s lifetime. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you,” another fan sends to Bear & family.
