'Sister Wives' Star Garrison Brown Laid to Rest in Funeral Service With Entire Family

Garrison's family members shared details from the service online.

Garrison Brown has been laid to rest. The son of Sister Wives stars Janelle Brown and her ex Kody Brown died last week. He was 25. 

Garrison's cousin, Emma Brown, took to Instagram over the weekend, sharing a tribute post to Garrison, whose full name was Robert Garrison Brown. 

"Dear Robert, I had to dress up for your funeral today and this is everything I wish you could’ve heard before I had to say goodbye," Emma began her post. "We love you. I don’t even own a picture of you without your contagious smile. I don’t know if I have the right words to say I’ll miss you." 

She concluded her post, writing, "You were a son, a brother, a soldier, and a friend. If there is a god I hope he’s giving you peace. I love you Robert."

Mykelti Padron, the daughter of Kody and his ex Christine Brown, also updated her followers on Patreon, sharing that she had been in Flagstaff, Arizona, for the funeral. 

In a video which was shared on the account, @withoutacrystalball, a tearful Mykelti gave some insight into the events following Garrison's death. 

"I was in Flagstaff last week with my husband and all of my family. It was for obvious reasons. My brother passed away," she said. 

Noting that she likes to see the positives in situations, Mykelti added, "I've got to see all of my family together for the first time in years. And I think that ultimately, obviously, Garrison would have been happy by that."

The mother of three added that the family has plans for upcoming events to honor her late brother. 


"We do have some more things for him, in honor of him coming up this next month and some more in the next couple of months," she shared. "There's a Brown family reunion in Wyoming. And a lot of my family, most of them, are going to honor him."

In addition to Garrison, Janelle and Kody also share kids Logan, 29, Madison, 28, Hunter, 27, Gabriel, 22, and Savannah, 19.

Flagstaff Police Department confirmed in a statement to ET that they were dispatched to Garrison's residence in Arizona and found him dead after being called by his younger brother, Gabriel. According to authorities, Garrison appeared to have suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Foul play is not suspected. 

After news broke of Garrison's death, Kody, Janelle, and Meri all released joint statements about the loss. 

"Our family is deeply saddened to announce the loss of our beautiful boy, Robert Garrison Brown. He was a bright spot in the lives of all who knew him," the post read on Instagram. "This loss will leave such a big hole in our lives, and it takes our breath away. We ask that you please respect our privacy during this time and join us in honoring his memory. Garrison, you are loved and will be missed! 💙💙" 

In recent years, Christine left Kody in 2021, Janelle followed suit in 2022 and Meri "permanently" terminated her marriage to Kody in early 2023. 


Kody is the father of 18 children in total. Kody's fractured relationship with his older children, specifically Garrison and Gabriel, was well-documented on TLC's Sister Wives. The polygamist accused his kids of not adhering to his rules during the COVID pandemic and disrespecting his only remaining wife, Robyn Brown.

Conversely, Kody's kids accused him of showing favoritism to Robyn over his other wives -- their mothers.
