It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Roger Basil Palmer on November 8, 2023 at home. Born on February 19, 1946, in Doaktown, NB, he was the son of the late Edith (Bird) and Perly Palmer.
Roger met the love of his life, Kathryn and they were married in 1968. He was the produce manager at St. Mary’s Supermarket, before retiring. For many years he was known as the Fiddlehead King, for selling fiddleheads at his roadside stand in Sheffield.
Surviving are his son, Bradley; brother, Ivan (Janet) Palmer; sister, Lillian Laaper; a very special best friend, Ruth; and many extended family members and friends.
Besides his parents he was predeceased by his brother, Perly.
