During River's birthday party, Bear Brown posted an emotional message on social media discussing how much the baby reminds him of his late father, Billy Brown, who passed away in February.

"River is officially one year old! I’ve also taken to calling him Little Billy, in honor of Da, I know without a doubt, my Dad would be proud of me! I will try my hardest to be as good as a dad as he was!"

The family revealed Billy died after suffering a seizure related to his ongoing medical issues.

What's Next for Bear and Raiven?

Bear and the rest of the Brown family have a long road ahead of them as they begin to rebuild their lives and home. As we reported, much of their family homestead was burnt to the ground last year during a devastating wildfire. Along with the death of Billy, there will be many changes in the "Alaskan Bush People" family that will surely be showcased on upcoming episodes of the Discovery series.

As for Bear and Raiven, they have upcoming nuptials to look forward to after recently announcing their intention to get married. That will no doubt be a big storyline leading up to the extreme wedding.
