What Happened to Billy Brown? The ‘Alaskan Bush People’ Star Has Died

Fans of Discovery Channel’s Alaskan Bush People are offering their support to the Brown family as they mourn the loss of their patriarch, Billy Brown. When the docudrama-style show started airing in 2014, it didn’t take long for people to admire Billy for his straight-shooting style and the way he took care of his family in the bush and away from modern society.

What happened to Billy Brown from ‘Alaskan Bush People’?

Those who have followed the show and kept tabs on the Brown family may already know that Billy had been dealing with some major health issues over the past few years. He was hospitalized briefly in October of 2018 with an upper respiratory infection. At the time, his son Bear told his followers that his dad was “in really bad shape,” health-wise.

Billy also had a history of seizures, which he had experienced with some frequency ever since he was in a coma in 2008. In 2015, he spoke to Radar Online about his experience of being in a coma, saying: “I was simply fine one day. I started that day thinking I was getting sick, but I wasn’t sick. And then I simply just fell over one day.”

In addition to his own health issues, Billy spent several years caring for his wife Ami after she was diagnosed with stage 3 lung cancer. In 2017, some fans spotted Billy at a mall and noticed he had lost quite a bit of weight, perhaps due to the stress of helping take care of Ami. Happily, Ami has since been declared cancer-free and has been in remission for the past few years.
