Matt shared a video on Instagram updating fans on the passing of his father, Billy.
He said of the loss: “He was at home. He was with his family, and it’s like he would have wanted it. The truth is it hit me hard. I’m fortunate, though.
“I’m very lucky. Before he passed, I knew that his health problems were getting worse. And I had the hindsight to be able to reconcile with him and find closure with him before he passed.
“Now that he has, I feel good in my heart. I knew that I took the opportunity to do the right thing…”
Matt captioned the clip: “In loving memory of my Dad, Billy B Brown. Thank you all so much for your loving words of kindness and prayers they mean so much!”

A crew member told the 911 dispatcher: “Hi, I have someone not breathing. I need an ambulance like, as soon as possible.”
She went on: “I work for them. Mr. Billy Brown is from the Alaskan Bush People, the show, we’re part of the production team. His son just called me. Bear Brown.”
When the operator asked why Bear didn’t call authorities, he said: “He tried calling 911 but he’s saying it’s not going through.
“I could hear them in the background telling him, ‘Wake up!’ Wake up!’”
She then asked: “Can you send someone there as soon as possible?”

A report from the deputy from the Washington Sheriff’s Office deemed the medical call resulted in an “unattended death.”
The reporting officer wrote in the report: “I was advised a 68-year-old male was reported to have been in seizure, the male had become unresponsive and had stopped breathing. CPR had been done on the male without success.”
The officer wrote, “multiple people” were inside the Washington home, including family and crew members.
The report read: “I spoke briefly with Amora Brown, wife of the deceased male, Billy Brown.
“I offered condolences for her family’s loss, then was able to get her and Billy’s information, as well as some basic medical background on Billy.”

Bear confirmed the passing by captioning a photo of his mother and father: “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.”

Last month, Matt resurfaced on social media after several months claiming “lies” kept him away from fans following accusations of rape from two women.
In September, two women accused Matt of violently raping them just days apart after he had spent days drinking heavily.
Matt, 37, posted a short video to his Instagram saying: “There are so many lies in the press about me, in general, it stopped me being able to act, to stand up at the right time for good.”
