“My dad had had Alzheimer’s for a while,” says Denise. “When his condition took a turn for the worse last Wednesday, my mom called me and said to come home. I flew home from Italy as soon as she called. I got there at 6 p.m., and he passed away not even 12 hours later. My mom said he knew I was there. She said, ‘He waited for you to come home.’ He was at peace.”

The father of Nicole Brown Simpson is also survived by his children from his first marriage: daughter Wendy, sons Rolf and Tracy and his grandchildren, including Sydney and Justin Simpson.
Denise revealed that one of the hardest times for her father and the Brown family was when her sister Nicole Brown Simpson and friend Ronald Goldman were murdered.
