Thomas (Tom) Dale Palmer, 73, passed away on June 7, 2017, at his home in East Wenatchee, Washington. Tom was born in Portland, Oregon on July 19, 1943, son of Frank and Hazel Palmer. Tom graduated from Jenkins High School in Chewelah in 1961. In 1963 he met Janice Derby and on October 9, 1964 the two were married and made their home in Atlantic, Iowa.
Tom’s job would eventually lead the family to settle in Kirkland, WA in 1982. In 1990, Tom and Jan established “Dance Time” dance studio. In 2005, Tom’s passion for music led him to form D2F Covers, an online business manufacturing protective covers for instruments and amplifiers.

Tom’s unlimited energy, enthusiasm and entrepreneurial spirit were an inspiration to others. His loyalty to friends countrywide was unsurpassed and he maintained contact with all. He will be missed!
