Gerald Palmer

April 28, 1949 — October 22, 2017

Gerald Maurice Palmer, 68 of Brazoria, Tx. left his earthly home to be with his Lord on Sunday, October 22, 2017 while surrounded by his family. Gary was born on April 28, 1949 to M.E. Palmer and Margery (Mumm) Palmer in Belleville, Kansas where he was raised until age 7.
He became a Texas resident in 1956 when his family moved to Lake Jackson. Gary and his wife Sharon met in Jr. High school and graduated together from Brazosport High School. They were married on April 13, 1968 and remained so for the next 49 years.

Gary became a member of Wild Peach Community Church in 2005, during which time he rededicated his life to God and became hungry for His word. He was dedicated to helping anywhere he could, was an active member of the men's group, and earned his Associates Degree in Divinity.
