95 Ram 1500 4x4 Battery Life

A family member has the above truck with 24k and is like new. I went to move it today and the battery just couldn't kick it over. The truck sits in a heated garage with very little use. My question is the battery is a year and a half old and could the constant sitting kill a battery? It ran about a month ago. The truck is used for plowing.

Get the battery tested. Most auto parts stores will do this for free (it sells batteries, belts and alternators).
A battery needs to be fully charged in order to make the test valid. The test result should meet or exceed the battery's CCA rating.
Batteries discharge and 'sulfate' from sitting dormant.
