‘SISTER WIVES’ STARS JANELLE & KODY BROWN’S SON FOUND HIS BROTHER DEAD AT HOME: INSIDE THEIR CLOSE BOND

The “Sister Wives” family is grieving the loss of Garrison Brown, the son of Kody Brown. Garrison’s body, with a gunshot wound to his head, was discovered by his brother, Gabriel.

Garrison Brown is known for his appearances on the hit TLC series “Sister Wives,” as one of Kody Brown’s 18 children. At 25, Garrison has died, leaving behind his family, including his brother Gabriel, with whom he was extremely close. To make matters worse, Gabriel was the one who arrived at his brother’s house, only to discover his brother’s lifeless body.

Garrison lived alone, since moving out of his family home, following the massive fight with his dad regarding COVID rules and their relationship overall. Garrison’s dad, Kodywas the one who pushed his son out of the house and made him move out. In an episode of the show, Kody said:

“When you’re twenty-one, karmically, I’ve given you all you need! You’ve got a good car. You go get a job. Here’s some cash. Bye!”

“I am on the verge of washing my hands of it. I am gonna have Gabriel and Garrison to move out of the house,” he added.

Since Kody was absent most of the time, the brothers grew up supporting each other. From family gatherings to domestic challenges, they learned to rely on each other rather than their father.

“Since I last talked to Dad, I have bought a house, gotten into a school, and acquired the car that I wanted, despite him telling me I should never get it,” said Garrison. When asked whether his father knew, Garrison replied, “No, he doesn’t care to.”

Gabriel was in the room during that conversation, nodding along, and understanding the circumstances. When his brother was done talking, he replied with a short “Based” comment, only proving that none of his father’s behavior was surprising to him anymore.

Kody did not spend Thanksgiving with his children, reasoning, “I am not going to have them come to my house for Thanksgiving if they have animosity towards me or someone connected to me.”

In an interview, the mother of the family commented, “Our Thanksgiving last year was separate. This year, there is such a big divide between Kody and my boys…”

The significant divide was indeed bound to happen, but the brothers stood by each other in their decision to distance themselves from their dad. When Gabriel had problems with his car in the middle of the road, it was his brother he called. Later on, their mother posted a picture of the brothers working together on the broken car.

“It does a mama’s heart good to know she raised boys willing to help out – even each other. Gabe hit something in the road and Garrison came right away to help him… AND it was raining like crazy. I went over to help but ended up being the cheerleader as I wasn’t really needed,” she wrote.

Now, with Garrison gone, Gabriel is left alone to deal with his problems, with his car, and with the family.

The Flagstaff Police Department, responding to a distressing call on the morning of March 5, 2024, arrived at Robert’s residence to a tragic scene. The 25-year-old, who had established his independence with his own home after moving away from his family, was found deceased.

Lieutenant Charles M. Hernandez II of the Flagstaff Police Department disclosed that Robert’s younger brother, Gabriel, age 22, made the heart-wrenching discovery. The preliminary investigation suggests a self-inflicted gunshot wound, with no indication of foul play. As the Flagstaff PD continues their meticulous investigation, the absence of any apparent foul play leads them to approach this as an apparent suicide.

Robert’s journey on “Sister Wives” commenced in 2010, at the inception of the series. Viewers were introduced to the polygamous family, with Robert’s father, Kody Brown, at the helm, married to multiple wives, including Robert’s mother, Janelle Brown. The show not only captured the dynamics of Kody’s relationships but also highlighted the upbringing and lives of the Brown children, with Robert becoming a familiar, endearing fixture.

The recent years saw changes in the Brown family dynamic, including the divorce of Janelle and Kody in the previous year. Despite the changes, the children’s bond throughout the adversity remained resolute. The children often posted one another on social media, with Robert being no exception.

Robert’s passage into adulthood was marked by a commendable interest in serving his country. Initially aspiring to join the Army, Robert found his calling with the National Guard, a commitment that spoke volumes of his character and his desire to contribute to something greater than himself.

Janelle shared poignant photos of her son on Instagram during his time of service, her words painting a portrait of a mother’s love and a tribute to a life cut tragically short. “Kody and I are deeply saddened to announce the loss of our beautiful boy Robert Garrison Brown,” her caption read. “He was a bright spot in the lives of all who knew him. His loss will leave such a big hole in our lives that it takes our breath away. We ask that you please respect our privacy and join us in honoring his memory.”

In a solemn acknowledgment of their bereavement, Robert’s family chose his own Instagram platform to communicate the news. A statement read, “Our beloved brother/son Robert (aka Garrison) passed late last night. We appreciate the love and support from all those who have given it.” It concluded with a plea for privacy during their time of profound grief.
