Anthony Eugene Palmer

January 14, 1974 — October 13, 2019

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

Gene was born on January 14, 1974 in Sheffield, Alabama to James and Hilma Palmer. He graduated from Mars Hill Bible School in Florence, AL in 1992 and from UAH. He worked as a contractor for UAH in the IT field for over 20 years.

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.

Gene was preceded in death by his mother, Hilma (1994), and his father, James (2011).  He is survived by his daughter Sydney, sister Alana Palmer Schwartz (Eric), nephew Liam, special in-laws Pam and Larry Waller, step-mother Johnnie Palmer, and several cousins.
