John Charles Palmour
John Charles Palmour, 63, passed away October 15, 2020, at Vitas Hospice here in Gainesville. He had been diagnosed with cancer of the bile duct in October 2017. Fortunately, with the help of the doctors from the Oncology Department at UF Shands Hospital, he was able to live a relatively pain free life until recently. John was born January 12, 1957, in Alachua General Hospital to Charles and Evelyn Middleton Palmour, both of whom have preceded him in death. John was a graduate of Gainesville High School. Following graduation, he worked at the Main Street Publix for 30 years as a Service Associate. He was an active member of R.T. Schafer Masonic Lodge, the Gainesville Shrine Club, and the Gainesville Charitable Foundation, Inc. Most recently, he was made an honorary member of the Masonic Lodge of Hawthorne No. 103. He was a member of the First United Methodist Church of Gainesville, and, most recently, he was a member of the First Baptist Church of Gainesville. He is survived by his long-time companion and loving caregiver, Wanda F. Lawrence. He has two sisters: Jane P. Hutson, of Richmond, VA, and Mary P. Barrett, of Gainesville, FL; and one nephew, Alan R. Hutson, Jr., of Richmond, VA. John will be interred at Evergreen Cemetery next to his father, Charles, and his mother, Evelyn, in the Palmour family plot. A Memorial Service/Celebration of Life will be held at a future date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the First Baptist Church or the First United Methodist Church, both here in Gainesville.

I was lucky to have met John and his father many years ago. Such sweet souls they were. I have even had the pleasure of meeting his sister Mary. Sorry for your loss but there is no more suffering and he is in a better place now. May god bless your family.

Warm regards,

John’’s parents were friends of my grandparents and John’s dad was my elementary school principal and my parent’s high school principal. I went to John’s house with my grandmother many times to visit and we even went to the movies at the Center Theater once or twice. I haven’t seen John since he worked at Publix. I’m sorry the world has lost John, but I’m sure heaven is a richer place. John was a sweet, kind, and caring man.
