George Wilton Palmer, 64, passed into the arms of our Lord on Thursday, March 5, 2015, in the comfort of his own home surrounded by his devoted wife, Robin and their six, beloved dogs, following an extended illness.

George touched many lives over the years, but none more than those lives of his large family including his wife of 29 years, Robin, whom he adored beyond measure; his twin brother, John Palmer and wife Joni; sister, Cynthia Tucker; sister, Kathryn King and husband, Joe; brother, Charles "Pete" Palmer and wife, Carol; brother in-law, Brian Casey and wife Susan; sister in-law, Toni Casey; and many nieces, nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews. George was preceded in death by his parents, Eola and Charles C. "C.C." Palmer; brother-in-law, Ronnie Tucker; sister, Peggy and husband, Raymond.

George was born on October 2, 1950 in Conroe, Texas and began working with his brothers at their father's gas station at the age of 12. After graduating from Conroe High School, he attended Sam Houston StateUniversity, graduating in 1973. Upon graduation, George joined the Texas Department of Public Safety, and retired as a corporal after 24 years of service. It was during his tenure with the DPS that he met his wife, Robin. After his retirement from the DPS, he joined private industry as a Safety Coordinator. In 2003, he fully retired to his home on Lake Livingston with his wife Robin. George was a lover of the outdoors. Every friend that visited George and Robin's home felt loved and cared for, and every stranger felt like a friend. Over the years, George and Robin participated in countless church activities, including The East Texas Emmaus Community and devoted their life together to furthering their relationship with the Lord.

A visitation will be held on Monday, March 9, from 5:00 - 8:00 PM at Pace Funeral Home, 200 FM 35 No., Livingston, TX., followed by a Memorial Service honoring his life on Tuesday, March 10, 10:00 AM at First United Methodist Church of Livingston, TX., 2801 Hwy. 190 W., and an Interment Service at 1390 Hart's Creek Rd., Carlifle, Texas.
