King Richard Palmer Who in the hell was King Palmer? Friend, joker, inventor, entrepreneur, father, lover, spouse, brother, grandfather, protector, and provider. Born in Tacoma, Washington on January 3, 1944. King believed in living life, working hard but most importantly taking time to have fun. King wanted to remind us all that when we get to the pearly gates we will be asked by our maker if we have enjoyed the life we were given. He said his reply would be YES! On October 23, 2009 King did his last wheelie all the way to heaven. (I am sure he enjoyed not having to wear a helmet on his last ride!). Please sign online guestbook at www.mountainviewtacoma.com.
