Family Says Beach Boy Brian Wilson Gets New Conservators After Death of Wife Melinda to Ensure “No Changes”: Dementia Reported


The family of Beach Boy Brian Wilson says that since the untimely death of his wife Melinda from cancer, Wilson will get new conservators.

A report says papers were filed because Wilson suffers from dementia. Just remember, no matter what, Brian Wilson has been a musical genius, one of the great composers in American history.

Brian and Melinda have five adopted children. Wilson, who made a great comeback after marrying Melinda, obviously requires quite a bit of help personally and in running his business. Luckily he has the resources to make it happen.

Wilson was left in poor physical, mental, and financial shape by his late former “adviser,” Dr. Eugene Landey. But he’s had a musical comeback over the years that demonstrates how well Melinda took care of him. Her death recently at age 77 was a shock.

The Wilson family — including singing daughters Carnie and Wendy — posted:

“Following the passing of Brian’s beloved wife Melinda, after careful consideration and consultation among Brian, his seven children, Gloria Ramos and Brian’s doctors (and consistent with family processes put in place by Brian and Melinda), we are confirming that longtime Wilson family representatives LeeAnn Hard and Jean Sievers will serve as Brian’s co-conservators of the person. This decision was made to ensure that there will be no extreme changes to the household and Brian and the children living at home will be taken care of and remain in the home where they are cared for by Gloria Ramos and the wonderful team at the house who have been in place for many years helping take care of the family. Brian will be able to enjoy all of his family and friends and continue to work on current projects as well as participate in any activities he chooses.”
