Gary Raymond Allen, a long time resident of Montana, passed away April 9, 2021, in Colville, Wash. Gary was born April 14, 1935, to Frank Harry and Leona (Nevell) Allen in Kalispell.

Gary grew up in the Columbia Falls area where he met the love of his life, Angie Hoerner. They exchanged vows on Dec. 26, 1964, and fell in love with each other a new way every day thereafter. Gary and Angie started their family with a son, Frank, in 1965 and later welcomed two girls, Tammy and Tina.

Gary retired from Hanford in 1994 and could not wait to go back to the mountains of Montana. You could always find the family at a campsite or outdoors somewhere just enjoying the nature.

Gary was an avid angler, hunter and outdoorsman. His favorite places were Flathead, North Fork, Libby, The Yaak, St. Regis and Clemy. Reunions at campgrounds were always a family favorite. Gary loved to fish with his grandkids. Gary and Angie loved to go on hikes to find huckleberries.

He is survived by his brother, Dennis Allen; loving wife, Angie Allen; daughters, Tammy Clark (Mike) and Tina Evans (Daryl); grandchildren, Shane Clark, Matthew Evans and Mark Evans; six great-grandchildren with two on the way; and many nieces and nephews as well as a host of extended family.
