Austin, Texas — It is with heavy hearts and profound sadness that the family of Billy "BJ" Miller confirms his passing in Austin, Texas. BJ, beloved actor and cherished family member, was battling with bipolar depression for many years.
In a heartfelt statement, Patricia, BJ's mother, extended her gratitude to the global community for their outpouring of love and support during this challenging time:
"I would like to share the following thoughts," Patricia began. "I want to personally thank the many fans & personal friends for the overwhelming amount of love, prayers & condolences sent to me and my family on the devastating death of my beautiful son BJ — Billy Miller. He fought a long hard valiant battle with bipolar depression for years. He did everything he could to control the disease. He loved his family, his friends and his fans but in the end the disease won the fight and he surrendered his life. The other causes of death being told are not true. I wish they were but they just aren’t. We all loved him so much and are desperately trying to deal with our loss. I will have nothing further to say. Thanks for the love and support."
We would like to reiterate the importance of understanding and compassion during this time. The Family is focused on healing and deserve privacy as they grieve.
False rumors and speculations surrounding BJ's passing are deeply distressing to the family and the community. We kindly request that the public respect their wishes and rely on statements directly from the family or their official representatives.
For those seeking to honor BJ's memory, we suggest contributing to organizations and initiatives focused on mental health awareness and support. We believe that increased awareness and understanding of bipolar depression can make a significant difference in the lives of many.
