Timothy Paul Palmer

11 October , 19539 August , 2019

Timothy Paul Palmer, born 10/11/53, passed away at age 65 on August 9th 2019. He is survived by his two sons, Robert Pierson Palmer and Timothy David Palmer; and his brother, Richard Palmer. There will be a memorial service in his honor at Saint Paul's Church, 200 Riverside Ave, in Riverside on Thursday, August 22nd, at 10:00 am.

The Palmer family has been part of Old Greenwich since it's inception, and Tim was very involved in the community. He owned and managed one of the oldest businesses in Old Greenwich, SP Palmer & Sons Plumbing and Heating; which was passed down to him from his father Paul Palmer. Just like his father, Tim was an accomplished heating and plumbing technician; and possessed a talent when it came to fixing things. Often, Tim would offer his mechanical skills free of charge to help others repair and improve their cars, boats, and motorcycles. Tim earned the gratitude of many, as he would surprise people with his generosity and willingness to lend a hand.

Tim was well known and respected throughout the town of Greenwich. He seemed to bring smiles and laughter everywhere he went. With a fun loving demeanor and an endearing charm, people would gravitate towards him and find themselves amidst a good time. Joy is a precious commodity, but something Tim would always have in abundance.

The level of support that the people in the community have extended to the family only demonstrates how Tim was truly loved and charished by many. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that donations be made to local nonprofits, such as the Sound Beach Volunteer Fire Department, Boy Scouts of America, the Lions Club, or CFE/Save the Sound.

Robert, Timothy, Dick and family, I am so saddened to hear about Tim. Many wonderful memories that I will forever treasure. I like to picture him now sailing with his parents, Linda, Robbie and those he loved and lost - with calm seas and the wind at his back. He will forever be remembered by all who loved him. My deepest sympathy to you at this very difficult time. Carol St. Charles-Sugerman

We have fond memories of Tim hosting fun summer parties and taking us on fast rides across the sound on his boat. Tim enjoyed life and had a great sense of humor. We wish him godspeed on his last journey. We are sending love to his two sons.
