Our loving son, husband, father, grandpa, and friend, Richard Todd Palmer, 57, returned to his heavenly home on Thursday, September 2, 2021. He lost his life due to complications of COVID-19. Todd was born to Richard Frank Palmer and Carolyn McKellar Palmer on May 24, 1964, in Pomona, California. His family later returned to Tooele, Utah where Todd attended and graduated from Tooele High School. He served a two-year service mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Oakland, California where he shared his testimony of the Lord Jesus Christ. He attended Utah State University and studied Business Management. He married Tammy Painter in the Salt Lake Temple in 1992 and together had one daughter, Kylee Nicole Palmer. He loved and faithfully endured many hardships with Tammy until the end of her life in 2006. He then married Traci Kerby in 2006 and together had Kendall Addison Palmer and gained two stepchildren whom they enjoyed raising together. They were married for 12 years. They later divorced and Todd married Morgan Ann Baird in 2019. They enjoyed traveling and spending time together. Todd was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in various capacities. He had a strong testimony of the gospel and unwavering faith in Jesus Christ. Todd truly lived life to the fullest. He was a jack of many trades. He worked in various industries including sales in auto, flooring, and furniture. Todd’s happy place was anywhere near water. He loved wave-running on Bear Lake, boating on the ocean, and cruising throughout the world. He loved to travel and was always planning the next trip. He recently went to the U.S. Virgin Islands and a two-week trip to Europe. He loved and embraced new things, new foods, and seeing new places. He was known for his humor, jokes, and big bear hugs that he gave. He enjoyed playing golf, learning a song on the guitar, studying the scriptures, or helping those around him. He had an infectious smile and easily made friends anywhere he went. He will be greatly missed by all those who met and knew him. Todd is survived by his parents, Richard and Carolyn Palmer; his siblings Dr. Pamela (Alan) Jones, Scot (Kelly) Palmer, and Brett (Sandra) Palmer; his daughter Kylee (Joshua) Shelhamer; previous wife Traci Palmer and daughter Kendall Palmer; current wife Morgan Ann Baird; several stepchildren including Chad (Taylor) Kerby, McKinsey (Chris) Harris, Cyatel, Mason, Teagen, and Vienna; his grandchildren Olivia and William Shelhamer, Korbyn, Jordyn, and Robyn Kerby, Alaina, and Tristyn Harris; and many nieces and nephews. He was truly a remarkable man who was dearly loved by many.
