Lamont C. “Monty” Vance

  Owner and operator of the Ripley Airport in Ripley, NY from 1929 - 1957.

He loved his Motorcycle, Car and Airplane toys and tinkering with anything mechanical. He was just like "a big kid" who never grew up.

Monty and Genevieve's only two children, Harold and Robert both served in the U.S. Army Air Corps in WWII. Harold, Robert and Robert's 3 daughters Susan, Barbara and Mary Elizabeth all perished in a tragic airplane accident at the Ripley Airport on Memorial Day, 1962.

We love you Grandpa and miss hearing your bike riding and flying stories.
