Gary M. Palmer
Horseheads, NY
Age 75 of Horseheads, NY passed away Thursday evening, September 20, 2018 at the Arnot Ogden Medical Center following a short battle with cancer. Gary was born in Waverly, NY, November 28, 1942 to the late Mahlon (Bud) and Anita Clust Palmer. He is also predeceased by his sister, Judy P. Lewis; brother, Max C. Palmer; several brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law. Gary is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Colleen McNeil Palmer; children Bryon M. (Laurie) Palmer, Barbara J. (John) Koehn and Bret A. (Maria) Palmer; five grandchildren, Samantha Morley, Bryon M. Palmer II, Andrew G. Palmer, Bradley A. Palmer and Talisa K. Palmer; one great-grandson, Brycen W. Hillman; sisters-in-law, Lorraine Groat, and Dianne Palmer; brothers-in-law, Edwin (Red) Lewis and Floyd Cartwright, Sr., several special nieces, nephews, cousins and many, many dear friends. Gary was a graduate of the class of 1961 from Odessa-Montour and retired from (Akzo-Nobel) Cargill Salt Co. in Watkins Glen, NY after 36 years. In retirement, he enjoyed time with family and friends, the outdoors, maintaining his home, lawn, flowers and providing for birds (squirrels-not so much), and often lending a hand to family, friends, and neighbors. Gary’s family wishes to express their deepest gratitude to each and everyone who so tenderly cared for him on 5D at Arnot Ogden Medical Center. The family will welcome relatives and friends to Sullivan’s Funeral Home, 365 E. Franklin St., at Rt. 13, Horseheads, NY on Wednesday, September 26, 2018 from 3-6PM with a Memorial Service to follow at 6PM. Gary will be laid to rest at Scotchtown Cemtery at the convenience of the family. Those wishing to remember Gary please consider contributions to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital in his memory.
