Garrison had been a part of the TLC program since its debut in 2010. He is the son of now-exes Janelle and Kody. The former couple also share daughters Maddie, 28, and Savannah, 19 as well as sons Logan, 29, Hunter, 27, and Gabe, 22.

Leading up to Garrison's death, he and his younger brother Gabe had a strained relationship with their father following the COVID-19 pandemic. However, on last year's Sister Wives Special: Look Back, Where We Started special, Janelle, 54, revealed that her ex-husband did eventually "have somewhat of a relationship with Garrison" but that there was overall "no reconciliation."

In a statement to PEOPLE following his death, TLC said of the tragic news: "We are devastated to hear of the tragic loss of Garrison Brown. We extend our deepest sympathies and heartfelt condolences to the Brown family at this difficult time."
