Billy and his wife Ami were parents to seven children

He captioned a photo of his father and his mother Ami, 57: “We are heartbroken to announce that our beloved patriarch Billy Brown passed away last night after suffering from a seizure.

“He was our best friend – a wonderful and loving dad, granddad and husband and he will be dearly missed. He lived his life on his terms, off the grid and off the land and taught us to live like that as well.

“We plan to honor his legacy going forward, and to continue with his dream.”

The family called 911 after screaming at Billy to “wake up” when he slipped into unconsciousness, The Sun previously reported.

Medics tried to save him with CPR. An emergency chopper was called, but he passed away at his house.

Police officers who attended the scene interviewed Ami and the couple’s son Gabe, 31.

A spokesperson from the Washington Sheriff’s Office told The Sun: “Medics and fire were on the scene a hour and a half before the Sheriff’s Office was called. We respond to all deaths. At this point, nothing suspicious or criminal.”

Alaskan Bush People star Billy is survived by his wife and their children Matt, 36, Bam Bam, 34, Bear, Gabe, Noah, 26, Bird, 24, and Rain, 16.

The family left their home in Alaska due to the sudden cancer diagnosis of Ami and relocated closer to California so she could be treated at UCLA Medical Center.

They bought a 435-acre property in the North Cascade Mountains of Washington State worth $1.6 million.
