Sadly, this was not the first tragedy Dog and his family had experienced. On May 19, 2006, Dog’s 23-year-old daughter Barbara Katie Chapman died after the SUV she was in “went off the road, rolled, hit some trees and landed upside down,” according to Hawaii News Now.

Coincidentally, the accident occurred the night before Dog’s wedding to his late wife, Beth Chapman. The wedding still went on as planned, but Dog incorporated a way to celebrate his daughter’s life on the special day.

On May 19th, Lyssa Chapman took to Instagram to remember her late sister.

15 years without you. Living every day to make you proud. Iā€™m working on myself sister, working thru all our childhood traumas, raising my daughter,” she wrote alongside several photos of her Barbara.
