Palmer was a true gentleman, donning a sport coat and straw hat for everyday attire. I would have liked to have known him at the height of his sales career, to learn from a progressive and innovative thinker. His many life stories and good-natured spunk will long be remembered. Cheers, Palmer!

Always a great conversationalist, Palmer shared stories of his life in Illinois, stories of his family and father, and mostly stories of his life with Luann. Their relationship truly was a great love affair. He touched base often just to chat and chat we did! I will remember him and those conversations fondly. Rest in peace Palmer.
