He was greatly loved by his family, his wide expanse of friends, and his pets. He touched many with his deep appreciation of life and the kindness that he so generously shared with others. Ben was always the first person to help anyone in need.

He is survived by his wife Carol of Towson, MD; his step-mother Judy Palmer of Laurel. MD; his brothers Ron Palmer of Chesapeake, VA, and Brian Palmer and his wife Fran of Parkton. MD; his sisters-in-law Dawn Smith and her husband Brad of Ellicott City, MD and Laura Scheufele and her husband Roger of Catonsville, MD; his beloved pets Dexter, Jonesy, Bippy, Milk Belly and baby as well as many nephews, nieces, cousins, and friends.

He was predeceased by his father George M Palmer Sr., his mother Carol D. Palmer (nee Schott), his brother Harold S. Palmer, and his in-laws Wayne and Bobbie Scheufele, who considered him a “son in heart.”

The celebration of his life will be announced at a later date. Donations in his name may be made to the Benedictine Sisters at 2229 W Joppa Rd, Lutherville-Timonium, MD, 21093, or on their website
