87-Year-Old Man Takes Three Generations of His Family Skydiving
An 87-year-old man jumped out of an airplane, bringing three generations of his family with him. Monty Montgomery said he wanted to make his second skydive before he lost his eyesight and his grandson deployed to Afghanistan.
Trace Gallagher reported that he is completely blind in his left eye and can barely see out of his right eye. Montgomery said, “I just couldn’t see any sense in just jumping by myself. I thought it would be a lot better off if I had my family go with me, make me feel a lot better.” Laughing, he added, “At least in the future
, they can’t say I’d never given them anything.”

The first time he skydived he went alone because, as it turns out, Montgomery didn’t even know he had an extended family until about a year ago. He and his wife divorced when their daughter was six years old and the last time he saw the child was when she was 12. He lived alone for 40 years with no contact to his family, until the phone rang one day. It was his daughter calling, changing his life forever.
Montgomery’s next goal? To go bungee jumping.
