When the coroner arrived to the scene, the deputy gave the information and prescription medications collected from the family to the coroner.

He captioned 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.”

The family also asked for “privacy and prayers” during the difficult time.

Billy had been in and out of the hospital in recent years and was previously told by medical professionals that the high altitude wasn’t good for him.

The father of seven decided to defy doctor’s orders and continue to live in the mountains with his family.

After returning home from one of his hospital visits, Billy told his family that he’d been having heart problems.
