Update on 44-year Vail Valley local Gerry White

Ashley White Seeger
Vail, CO, Colorado

After 44 years in the Vail Valley my father, Gerry White, has moved out of Vail for health reasons. My sisters and I wanted to update the community on his health and thank you all for the outpouring of support and love for my Dad and for us.

Gerry and Elaine moved to Vail in 1964 and built the Ramshorn Lodge , raising their family in the shadow of Golden Peak. My father has always been a cowboy at heart — independent and strong — but unfortunately, his health has not kept up with his spirit.

As most of you know, my father had a traumatic brain injury 35 years ago. He began having strokes a year ago that compounded this old brain injury and have made it so that he is no longer able to live on his own.

His decline was sudden and we had to move him quickly and without the ceremony that such a change deserves. We all wish he had been able to say a proper good-bye to you all.

He is now living in the Seattle area near my sister Vanessa and her family. He is able to spend a great deal of time with his grandkids at my sister’s house and is beginning to accept the Seahawks as a home team.

He misses the mountains, the snow, the skiing and most of all the people of Vail. It is our hope that he will be able to return to visit in the future. If you would like to contact Gerry he can be reached at:

Thank you again for your support to our family,

Ashley White Seeger
