Palmer Moore was a legend: charismatic, energetic and unstoppable.

He was the founder of Ohio Fingerstyle Guitar Club; was inducted into the Thumb Picker's National Hall of Fame in Muhlenberg County, Kentucky; stage manager of the Thumb Picker's room annually at Chet Atkins Appreciation society; organized and played in the Finger Style Guitar sessions on Tuesday nights at Scotty McBeans and then later the McConnell Arts Center; organizer of the Penn Yan Academy '59 class reunions.

Palmer was very active in Worthington Rotary, received a Paul Harris Fellow recognition, Linworth United Methodist Church, Linworth Alternative High School, PTA, McConnell Arts Center, active with local civic and political organizations, instrumental in establishing the Worthington skate park complex, and pickleball courts throughout the U.S. Palmer was the most encouraging and supportive person and a friend to all in addition to being one of the most unique individuals in the world, one that will never be forgotten, and one that will certainly be missed by all.

Palmer introduced me to Chet Atkins and fingerpicking guitar when we were in college together. He was one of a kind.

That smile says everything! I officially met "Palmah" in 1999, when he convinced me to attend the annual Chet Atkins convention in Nashville, TN. We've been "pickin' buddies" ever since. My fondest memory is how he loved my guitar arrangement of "How Great Thou Art," so much so that he "stole" it from me and "Chet-ified" the second chorus just to "show-off." I'll never forget that silly grin once he finished playing it for me at one of the Ohio Fingerstyle gatherings. Rest easy, good buddy. I'll see you in my dreams, doncha know.
