Joshua, who is best known as “Bam Bam” on the reality show, thanked his fans for their prayers during his family’s period of grief.
The 34-year-old star of the Discovery channel show took to Instagram to post the selfie, which eerily resembled his late father.
Bam Bam is the second-oldest brother of seven siblings and shot to fame alongside his family members as they attempted to pursue a life in the wilderness, off the grid.
The show began in Alaska, following the Brown family patriarch, Billy, who sadly passed away in February after suffering from several health-related issues.
Bam Bam posted a tribute to his late father, with a photo of himself looking incredibly similar to Billy, with the caption:
“When I was a kid, my Mom and Dad taught me that this world can be a dark place, and that it’s our job to shine light wherever we can.”
“They taught me that when it’s hard, when you want to fall to the ground and cry, when everything in you says give up, that is when you must keep going, when you must have courage and faith.”
The star continued, “Da never cared about money or fame. What he did care about was family, faith and freedom.”
“Da once said that if our show made just one person smile, and brought light into just one persons’ life, even for just a moment, then it was worth all of it.”
“To all the honorary members of The Wolf Pack, Thank you. Thank you for being a part of our family, and letting us be a part of yours. Thank you for your prayers, support and the love you have all shown for my family. Never give up. Never surrender.✌🏻❤️”.
Fans flooded in with supportive comments after reading Bam Bam’s kind words, urging him to keep his father’s memory alive.
One wrote: “This world definitely needs more people like Billy Brown in it. A candle on a hill cannot be hidden. Keep his light shining!”.
Another wrote: “Stay strong Bam Bam. Your da taught you all to be strong. So incredibly sorry for the loss of Billy. Sadly missed. 💔💔”.
A third fan added: “Bam is the leader of the pack.”
In the Discovery Channel show’s new season, Billy’s widow Ami, 58, revealed his last words to her before he died.
Billy‘s widow said: “His life was ending. He said, ‘I love you.'”
In one call, a female crew member told the 911 operator: “Hi, I have someone not breathing. I need an ambulance like, as soon as possible.”
The Brown family owns a $1.6 million property empire on over 436 acres of land on Palmer Mountain, which they bought in 2018.
