In Memory

William Palmer

William Palmer

My father, Bill Palmer:

Born Aug 3 1945
Died June 2 2012

He is survived by his wife Nancy, two sons William the 3rd and myself. Grandsons Elijah, Ethan and Connor. Brothers John, Mike and Larry. He worked as computer programmer for companies such as IBM, Net Manage and Netsoft.

He had a love and passion for collecting various items. He was quite the hobbyist. His favorite sport by far was baseball and he loved jamming on the guitar.
He was inducted into the US Army on October 26, 1965 and discharged on August 30, 1967. Bill served in Vietnam and received the following: National Defense Service Medal, Good Conduct Medal (1st AWD). Vietnam Service Medal, Army Commendation Medal, and Vietnam Campaign Medal W/60 Device. He achieved the Rank of SP5 (T) and was Honorably Discharged. His service in Vietnam may have contributed to his development of cancer, as he regrettably suffered and passed away from Malignant Melanoma

Although he was a quiet man he had a lot of good friends who enjoyed his company, as well as a family who loved him and misses him dearly.

Bill and have been Buds since High School..He and I, were part of a Surf garage band that took allot of our time, plus disturbing all the neighbors in the area lol..We partied with the best of them,cruised Balboa during Easter Week..still can't believe how crazy and crowded it got during that week  !! double dated, drank allot of Red Mountain wine and Renier Ale (Yuk),  raced our funky cars, and worked together at Hoag Hospital.  He and Tom Campos and I, were like the "Tres Amigos"..and now that Tom  "and"  Bill are gone, I'm the last of the three..and  although I loved the guy's, I hope I don't join them too soon lol..Kind of mad at the man upstairs for taking them so early..but I've been told that death is part of life..sad

I hooked up with Bill and Nancy at the 40th reunion and we had fun chatting about times gone by... It was nice hooking back up with him... we chatted on Facebook from time to time... Bill was a  great guy and a gentle spirit... All of his friends will always have fond thoughts of him... and we do miss him.. Rest in peace my friend.


2Cr 5:6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:


2Cr 5:8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

Amen to that,

God bless you all
