“Sister Wives,” a TLC reality show that has aired for 18 seasons, focuses on Kody Brown, his four wives and their 18 children. He shares six children and three grandchildren with Janelle and has said he is estranged from them.

On Tuesday, Kody and Janelle shared news of Garrison’s death via nearly identical messages on their individual Instagram accounts.

“He was a bright spot in the lives of all who knew him,” the posts said. “Our loss will leave such a big hole in our lives, that it takes our breath away.”

TLC said in a statement: “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.”

His mother had praised Garrison for his carpentry skills — a family trait — expressed through his restoration of a vintage camping trailer and construction of a custom table he made for her.

The estrangement between Kody and his children with Janelle was a topic during season 18 of the show, which began airing last fall.

“We’ve reached out and tried to be open and neglected and overlooked for offenses that were believed to have happened but they never did,” Garrison Brown said in one episode.

Police said the death was under investigation.

“At this time there is not any indication of foul play, and Detectives from the Criminal Investigations Division are investigating,” police said.
