Obituary for James 'Jim' Roy Allee

Jim Allee passed away peacefully in his sleep at 7:30 am on Thursday morning on the 25th of

May in Big Timber, Montana.

Jim was born in California, Missouri to G.L. “Jack” and Mable Hurt Allee. Growing up with 5

siblings, Jim graduated from high school in Otterville, MO.

Jim rode out west from Missouri on horseback and made his way as a trapper. It was in

Wyoming where he met his future wife and grew roots. He raised three children with his wife,

Mary Zoe Allee on a cattle ranch in Wyoming.

Jim later opened Allee Saddlery, and ran a successful saddle and tack shop in Greycliff, MT for

over 30 years with his loving partner, Leila. He became a renowned saddle maker in the

community and in the western film industry.

At the age of 87, Jim lived an accomplished life as a rancher, stockman, gunsmith, and saddle

maker. He lived off the land and on his own terms and inspired others to do the same. Jim was

one-of-a-kind and will be greatly missed by many.

Jim is survived by his sisters; Beverly "Jo" Stone and Sue Hirst, brother; Charles Allee, son;

Rusty Allee and daughter; Echo Stock, six grandchildren; Mark Allee, Stacy Allee Smoot,

Brandon Allee, Deann Keplar, Dustin Zimmerschied, and Sarah Accord, 8 great grandchildren,

and one great-great grandchild. Jim is proceeded in death by his son; Jack Allee, mother;

Mable Hurt Allee, father; Jack Allee, and his siblings; Lee Allee and Fern Hutchison.

A celebration of life will be held by the family at the Pelican Fishing Access on the Yellowstone

River at 10am on July 15th, 2023.
