Gerry Abbot December 2014  In Memory

Gerald Franklin Abbott

June 18, 1937


February 2, 2015
Each person is given the gift of time on this earth to live, to learn, to love, and to leave a legacy.

Gerry's life ended on February 2nd, 2015 at the age of 77. It was much to soon but his legacy lives on. We married June 20th 1959. We were blessed with one daughter, one son and six grand children.

He retired in 1993 after 37 successful years at Boeing.

We had a small farm in SeaTac, Washington. In 1988, we purchased our 1st llama as a pet and it grew from there. We moved to Montana in 1994 to pursue ranching. After trying our hand at raising llamas, donkeys, yaks, goats, ostriches, a couple of cows, a horse and alpacas, we finely decided on just llamas and alpacas.

Gerry loved Montana, his llamas, alpacas and the llama community.  He loved a good laugh and practiced it whenever he could. His playfulness and humor were enjoyed by all he touched. He will be dearly missed.

I loved him and miss him to the moon and back.

Gerry and I worked very hard to disperse the herd by selling, trading and giving away many llamas during the past three years. We made a lot of headway but didn't quite meet our goals.

Gerry was in tremendous pain for the last few years but always moved ahead with the attitude of his glass is half full.  He always wanted me to do the same.

With that said, I am going to go ahead and stay on the ranch with a small herd while I figure out how to disperse of the ranch, the llamas, the alpacas and the ranch equipment. I hope to accomplish this in the next couple of years so I can truly retire.
