Robert "Bobby" Mark Palmer

July 21, 1964 — August 27, 2019

Robert “Bobby” Mark Palmer, 55, passed away Tuesday, August 27, 2019 in Red Hill, New Mexico. He was born July 21, 1964 in Springerville, the son of Robert Dale Palmer and Linda Kay Browning Palmer.

Robert was an avid hunter of anything from prairie dogs to elk. He was always excited to help anyone at any time with any hunt. One of the highlights of his life was his one shot kill of a running Oryx at White Sands.

In recent years, Robert, with the help of his son, Cody and a longtime friend, Chad Hughes, built a truck (Chevy of course) to race on the drag strip. He and Cody would load up and go to Albuquerque any time they got the chance.

Robert’s grandkids were the light of his life. He spent many hours babysitting and even had them with him on his final hunt.

Robert is survived by his wife, Melanie Palmer, Kirtland, New Mexico; son, Cody Robert (Mallory) Palmer, Kirtland, New Mexico; daughters, Lacie Markee (James) Torres, Farmington, New Mexico; McKara Peters, Eagar; step-daughter, Sherly Jones, Albuquerque, New Mexico; brother, Roger Clark, sister, Edde Castillo, Springerville; and 2 grandchildren, Brinley Genevieve Palmer and Rhett Robert Palmer.

He was preceded in death by his parents, sister, Tracy Kai Palmer, niece, Candyce Palmer and brother-in-law, Raymond Castillo.

A viewing will be held Thursday, September 5, 2019 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at Burnham Mortuary, Eagar.
