Following the passing of “Alaskan Bush People” patriarch Billy Brown earlier this year, members of his family continue to mourn him. This includes his son, Matt Brown.
Matt took to Instagram this week to share a very special memory he has of his late father. And, even though the Brown family lives differently than many others, Matt’s memory is one that many, many others could share.
Here’s what he posted to Instagram: “Somthing (sic) cool I remember about my Dad, is when he was in a really good mood and feeling a little like a kid, he would sing the rubber ducky song from sesame street “rubber ducky your the one, you make bath time so much fun.”
The post by the “Alaskan Bush People” star also included a photo of a rubber ducky. The worn toy is sitting outdoors on a cloudy day. A bicycle is in the background of the photo. Also, a worn toy firetruck can be seen in the foreground.
Billy Brown passed away in February 2021. He was 68 years old at the time of his death, which was caused by a seizure. In addition to his children, he left behind his wife, Ami Brown.
Matt Brown is not the only child of Billy Brown. In fact, the “Alaskan Bush People” patriarch was the father of seven children. Matt is the oldest. The other six children, in order from oldest to youngest, are Bam Bam, Bear, Gabe, Noah, Bird, and Rain.
Noah Brown of ‘Alaskan Bush People’ Shares Update About Living Situation
Before they lost Billy Brown, the Brown family suffered another personal loss. It was during August 2020 that the Palmer Fire destroyed the family’s North Star Ranch and home. This is located in the North Cascade Mountains of Washington state.
Recently, Noah Brown shared details about his living situation. Apparently, some have been saying that the Brown family have moved away from North Star Ranch for good. According to Noah, this is not the case. He shared his feeling via Instagram.
“To set the record straight so that everyone can stop asking and speculating. The mountain is home, North Star Ranch is home. The only reason that we are not on the mountain right now is because Rhain and I personally lost everything in the Palmer mountain wildfire. So we are in a rent house until we can rebuild what we lost,” Noah posted.
He also said that his family is not asking for “donations or hand outs.” But, he did say they family is grateful to those who have supported them during this time.
