William Lloyd Palmer, age 86, of Clay passed away September 25, 2022. He was an active member of Ridgecrest Baptist Church for over 50 years and attended Central Baptist Church for the last three years. Lloyd loved the Lord, and every conversation was a cherished opportunity for fellowship; a seemingly simple handshake with a stranger meant a friendship for life.
Lloyd was preceded in death by Trudy, his wife of 54 years; sister Annie Sue Christain; and he shared his journey to heaven on this same day with sister Dorothy Lowery. He is survived by his children Dr. Melisa Walker, DNP, RN (Eddie) and Captain Allen Palmer, U.S. Navy (Jodi), sister Pauline Woods (Pete), and grandchildren Chanae and Alexandra. He also leaves behind many family and friends.
