Dale L. Palmer, beloved Father, Grandfather, Brother, Uncle, Cousin and Friend-To-All, passed away unexpectedly November 26th 2007 at the age of 82. Born in South Jordan, Utah to Leo D. and Lucille Palmer, Dale was an active member of the L.D.S. Church. He grew up on the farm where horses, hard work and singing were the normal, everyday, wonderful way of life. Dale’s mother said her children were raised on “milk, music and love.” Dale was an optimist, always reaching out to the oppressed and the needy. He warmed their souls. He was “Mr. Music” his daughter Paula said, as he often taught voice, and was the first to make the birthday calls and sing “Happy Birthday”.\n\nDale served in the United States Merchant Marines during World War II in the Pacific Fleet. He married Dixey Kerr in 1946. They had two sons and one daughter, but later divorced. Dale married Iris Henderson in 1957, later solemnized in the Oakland CA Temple. Iris had two children; they had three daughters together. Dale and Iris lived in Utah, California and Missouri. He was a prize-winning salesman, specializing in new car sales.\n\nIris preceded Dale in death in 2005. He was also preceded in death by his parents, grandparents, three sisters: Reta McKee, Wanda and Laura Palmer, and a brother, Val Gene Palmer and brother-in-law, Lee Thomas. He is survived by his wonderful children: Kalline Lee Clay, Murray, UT; Dale W.
