PALMER – Michael (Mike) David

October 7, 1943 – February 11, 2011

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, grandfather, and brother, Michael Palmer on Friday, February 11, 2011.

Mike was born in Oldham, Lancashire in 1943 and immigrated to Canada in 1953.

Mike was a kind and giving man with a very unique sense of humour. He loved cars and motorcycles and even raced mini-stocks at Race City Speedway. Always a storyteller, Mike also loved participating in a lively debate and would often bait anyone he could into having one with him.

Mike will be truly missed by those who knew and loved him.

He has now joined his father Albert; mother Ethel; and daughter Amanda. His legacy lives on in his wife Susan; his children, Trevor (Eran), Shauna (Douglas) and Kirsten (Geordee); his five grandchildren; his brothers, Andy (Cathy) and John (Cindy); and his niece Leigh-Anne and nephew Nathan.

A Memorial Service will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S, Chapel of the Bells (2720 Centre Street North) on Friday, February 18, 2011 at 10:00 a.m.  Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.  If friends so desire, in lieu of flowers, memorial tributes in Mike’s honour may be made directly to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Alberta, 200, 119 – 14th Street N.W., Calgary, AB T2N 1Z6 Telephone: (403) 264-5549, www.heartandstroke.ca.

In living memory of Mike & Amanda Palmer, trees will be planted at Big Hill Springs Park, Cochrane by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Chapel of the Bells, 2720 CENTRE STREET NORTH Telephone: (403) 276-2296.
