Bob was one of the guys who helped me when I was a new installer in the early 70s.

He was a great guy.

My best to his family in this time of sorrow.

I served in the U.S. Navy aboard a destroyer (called a "Tin Can" in navy lingo). Bob and I often talked about the interactions between carriers and tin cans in fleet operations. I tried, to no avail, to convince him to go on an Honors Flight. He simply said "no thanks". I played golf with him a couple of times. Bob Palm was a prince oc a man. Jerry Kerns

As a fellow Summerfield resident just down the block, I want to remember the beautiful Christmas lights that adorned the Palm house and trees for years. I hope we thanked him enough for that sight.

Bob Palm and I worked together back in the early sixties. I was with IBM and he saved my butt several times when there was a teleprocessing problem. It was the beginning of data over the phone lines that finally led to todays internet. One instance was at Emanuel Hospital. IBM had a data link of some sort that often stopped working. One time I was there and instead of the coded 'beeps', I heard voices. Bob showed up, (++I called!) and he broke into the line and found that the pay phone in the nurses school dorm was 'cross talking' to our data line. He said he'd take care of the problem. I didn't 'have' to go to the nurses dorm!!!!!!
