Obituary of Glenn Michael Palmer

Dr. Glenn Michael (Mike) Palmer, 54, passed away peacefully in his home on Monday, May 2nd 2016 surrounded by his loving family after a courageous 2 year battle with brain cancer. He was a gentle man who lived his life with love, unselfishness and complete kindness to others, a gift we know will live on with those who loved and knew him. Born in Needham, MA, he is the son of the late Dr. George Burton Palmer and Sally A. Sholler. Mike is a graduate of Danvers High School, Dartmouth College where he captained the hockey team, studied pre-med at Harvard University, and graduated from Albany Medical College.
