On Sunday, October 13, 2019, Anthony “Gene” Palmer, loving father, brother, and friend, passed away at the age of 45.

Gene loved hiking, camping, fishing, and simply being outside. He enjoyed sports of all kinds, but especially those his daughter played. He was known for his quirky sense of humor, kindness, and Christian values.
