Gary Matthew Palmer
Virginia Beach- Gary Matthew Palmer, 41, passed away peacefully on August 26th, 2015. He was born in Norfolk, VA and was the son of the late Donald Arnold. Gary was also the son of Carol Lamar Palmer and Stephen Palmer. He was raised in the Little Neck/Kings Grant area of Virginia Beach and graduated from First Colonial High School in 1992.
Left to cherish his memory is his loving wife, Heather; and their adored daughter, Regan. There was nothing Gary treasured more than Regan. He referred to her as “my girl” and she truly was his greatest joy in life. He also leaves his brothers,Mark Christopher Palmer and Leo Joseph Salch, and many extended family members and friends to mourn his loss and celebrate his life.
Gary was a big kid at heart and that childlike quality was what made him so endearing. He also found comfort, peace, and joy through music, using it to communicate his feelings to those he loved and knew.
Gary was an outstanding “Carpet Master” and “Flooring Artist,” and his creative talents were revered by countless satisfied clients over the years. His personality was expressed in his business motto: “Your smile is your logo, your personality is your business card, how you leave others feeling after having an experience with you becomes your trademark.”
A private celebration of his life will be held at a later date with the scattering of his ashes.
Memorial gifts may be made directly to Heather & Regan.
