It is unclear how the marriage between him and his first wife fizzled out. But, Billy didn't give up on love and found solace in Ami Brown. While working as a plumber in Ami's mother's house, Billy met his wife, Ami, while working as a plumber.

Billy fell in love with Ami at first sight. Even though they were six years apart in age, they began covertly seeing each other, and the pair eventually got married in 1979. The couple brought seven children, namely Joshua Brown, Solomon Brown, Gabriel Brown, Matthew Brown, Snowbird Brown, Rain Brown, and Noah Brown, to the world.

Billy had a very blissful life with his wife and children. However, the whole family was troubled when the family's matriarch, Ami, got diagnosed with cancer in 2017. The family dealt with traumatic news as a single unit. They saw a ray of optimism when she successfully fought cancer in 2019. But, the happiness was short-lived.

It so happened that Billy was rushed to the hospital due to a possible case of pneumonia in 2019. 

The hospital stay was even hard on Billy as he had to undergo a seven-hour-long surgery to remove liquid from a lung. Nevertheless, despite the health scare, his wife and children surrounded the reality star. 

Post the successful surgery, he was advised not to go back to the mountain region of Alaska.

Things were going well when the saddest news knocked on their doors. On 7th February 2021, Billy passed away at the age of 68 after suffering from a seizure. 

This was a very devastating situation for the family and the fans. However, Billy's wife, Ami, has made significant progress in continuing her life without her husband.
