Eric McCutcheon Palmer, 33, passed away Sunday, May 12, 2013. Eric was born in June of 1979 in Santa Barbara to Greg and Ginny Palmer. He spent many happy days in Santa Barbara; Aspen, Colo.; and here on the Central Coast. He loved nature, animals, a good party and most of all his dear friends and family, whom he treasured and respected so much. His Bernese Mountain Dog, Basel, was the love of his life and gave him so much joy. Eric was a handsome, smart, creative, irreverently funny and most of all the kindest, most loving young man you could hope to meet. Eric leaves behind his adoring family, including his parents; brother, Nathaniel (Heather); nephew, Nathaniel; niece, Amelia; many beloved cousins, aunts and uncles; and a very special grandmother, Virginia, who always stood by him unconditionally. A celebration of Eric's life will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday, May 25, 2013, at a family ranch in Creston. For details, please email Dianne at [email protected]
Casual attire is welcome as this is a ranch, (ladies, no stilettos) and if you are of Scottish descent feel free to wear your clan tartan. Eric, we will love you forever and beyond, dear soul, and will keep your spirit close in our hearts into eternity, when we meet again. You have touched the lives of many people with your remarkable wisdom. In lieu of flowers, please donate to your favorite animal charity; or the Gryphon Society, 1825 San Ramon Road, Atascadero, CA 93422.
