On March 5, Garrison was found dead in his Flagstaff, Arizona home by his brother, Gabe Brown. Lieutenant Charles M. Hernandez II of the Flagstaff Police Department told PEOPLE that officers responded to a report of a death inside a home and said Garrison was found dead following an apparent suicide.

Garrison’s parents, Kody and Janelle Brown, later confirmed his death on social media. “Kody and I are 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. His loss will leave such a big hole in our lives that it takes our breath away. We ask that you please respect our privacy and join us in honoring his memory,” they shared on their individual Instagram pages.

Family members confirmed they gathered for a private viewing days after his death. Following the somber gathering, Mykelti penned a touching tribute to Garrison on social media.

Beside two quotes about pain and experiencing love, Mykelti wrote, “My heart breaks for my brother who’s no longer with us but it rejoices knowing he’s with his fellow warriors in Valhalla drinking and fighting with Odin.”

“I hope he is loving his place amongst the stars,” she continued. “Garrison was always the funniest person in the room. He was one cool dude and I cry so much because my [kids] will never be able to experience his fun presence. But he will live on in all my families memories. Have fun up with the stars little bro, you’re missed.”

Sister Wives fans have also banded together since the tragedy to offer donations in Garrison’s name to High Country Humane Society and Ark Cat Sanctuary — the places Garrison adopted his three loved cats from. High Country Humane reports receiving over $13,000 in donations.

Mom Janelle later shared gratitude for the gestures of kindness. “I have been brought to tears again. I’m being told about everyone’s donations to @highcountryhumane @arkcatsancutary in Garrison’s name,” she wrote on Instagram. “Thank you for all your generosity. It means so much. The cats he adopted from both agencies were so important to him. He loved being a cat dad.”
