A Life well-lived: Ricky Bruce Palmer

Tuesday June 18th, God called Ricky Bruce Palmer home. He left his earthly shell of a body for a heavenly, whole, healthy body. Born July 16 1947, Ricky spent his 71 years with a sense of humor and a fighting spirit. Most of his years here on earth where spent as a local Realtor, car salesman and ALL his years as a friend. Those who knew him best are happy for him, he fought a HARD fight with cancer. By his side through ALL his battles was his wonderful wife Joanne Weddle Palmer; his true partner in crime!

Ricky also leaves behind: his mother, Linda Bell Palmer; three sisters: Jill Palmer White, Sheila Palmer Miles and Penny Palmer Barker (husband Lee Barker); Father in Law, Ray Weddle; Sisters in Law, Jackie Weddle Epperly (husband Neil Epperly) and Diane “Mouse” Weddle Conner (husband Jay Conner); Nieces and Nephews, Christine Miles (husband Dougley McCallister); Reagan Miles (Chris Hansen) and Monica Miles (Bobby Hughes); Ryan Weddle (wife Ashley); Raymond Weddle (wife Loretta), Courtney Weddle, Chase Weddle (wife Kacie), Jacob Conner, Julianne Conner Belcher (husband David); & numerous grand nieces and nephews.

Ricky is preceded in death by his father Albert Sidney Palmer, His Mother-in-law Mary Reed Weddle, brother-in-law Johnny Weddle, brother-in law W. Alan Miles & far to many life time friends!

Ricky will be SO missed for his humor, craziness & his ability to dream BIG. There will be a hole in everyone’s heart for the crazy old man with the white whiskers. This could not be more true than for his many life time friends and his immediate family, Joanne and the fur kids, Cooper and Lilly. Please continue to lift them up in your prayers.

In lieu of flowers, PLEASE make a donation to your local animal shelter.

Visitation will be held at Horne Funeral Home on Saturday, June 22, 2019, from 1-3 p.m., with Memorial Services to follow visitation.

Till we meet again
