On Monday, the Brown sibling took to Instagram to post a heartwarming tribute to his father, the Brown family patriarch, as he rang in his 66th birthday.

Brown went on to thank his father for everything that he has taught him, as well as for always being there for him.

“If not for him I would not be the same person that I am today!” he wrote. “He has taught me to always stand up for what I believe in! To never lie cheat or steal! To always put others above myself! To never give up! And to always try my hardest! My dad is one of the only people that has always believed in me! And has always been there for me!”

“I’m blessed to still have him with me!” he concluded the post. “Happy birthday Da! The living legend!”

Fans of the Brown family took to the comments section of the post to wish Billy their own well wishes on his big day, many following Bear Brown’s footsteps and writing what they have learned from the Alaskan Bush People patriarch.

“Happy birthday to your dad! For me, he is an example of how to build relationships with people around you, especially with your family,” one fan wrote. “It was nice to see how he takes the time for a personal conversation with each of you.”

Brown’s post comes just months after he teamed up with his little sister Rainy for a birthday tribute for their mother, Ami Brown, after she emerged cancer-free from a serious health scare last year.
