Condolence & Memory Journal

What a good friend Joe was. He led an exemplary life and what a great role model he was. We had so many conversations and endless laughs about so many different subjects. Sports, History, Politics, Travels, Food, Guns, Hunting, Fishing, Boating and Skiing among others. One of his favorite things to talk about was golf. He wanted to hear stories of my days as a PGA tour caddy. He loved his family very much. He often spoke with great pride and affection of his wife, Dawn, daughter, Cheryl, granddaughter, and brother,Al. Joe was so kind and generous. He had a fabulous sense of humor and infectious laugh. I am sure he touched so many lives, as he did mine. I am truly honored to have known him and to be able to call him my friend. God bless you. Joe rest in peace my friend and I'll see you at the 19th hole someday. Your dear friend David

I lived in Springdale. My first job was at Palmer's. I worked there for just over a year. Joe was a great boss!! He was patient, never a cross word. There were great times... I am so sad to learn of Joe's passing. RIP Joe Palmer
