Scott Vincent Palmer

Palmer PhotoScott Vincent Palmer, 44, of Taylor Lake, TX, passed away on September 8, 2014. He was born March 7, 1970 to Clarence and Terry Guitrau Palmer in Little Rock, Arkansas. Scott grew up in Kingwood, Texas, where he played soccer at Rivergrove Park, swam for the Woodland Hills Wahoos, and spent many days wakeboarding on the San Jacinto River. Scott was a loving husband, father, brother, son, and a dear friend to many. A true family man, Scott’s passion was his family with whom he spent most of his time. A music connoisseur, Scott enjoyed discovering new musical groups and passed on his passion for music to everyone around him. Scott was preceded in death by his loving mother, Terry. He is survived by his wife, Sheila Oliver Palmer, sons, Mason Palmer and Tyler Nimtz, and daughter Claudia Nimtz: father Clarence Palmer: brother John Palmer and his wife, Carla: brother Stephen Palmer and his wife, Renee: nephews, Zach Palmer and Hugh Palmer: nieces Alice Palmer, Clare Palmer and Kate Palmer. An informal visitation will be held on Saturday, September 13, 2014, from 2:00 to 4:00 at Crowder Funeral Home, 1645 East Main St., League City, TX.
In lieu of flowers anyone is welcomed to contribute to A Trust for Mason Vincent Palmer, Scott’s surviving minor child or a contribution to Taylor Lake Village Community Park for the specific purpose of rehabilitating and renewing the playground equipment for the enjoyment of all our Village children. Scott was all about the kids and their enjoyment.

  2. Prayers to Scotts family, although it’s been many years since I have seen him some of my fondest memories were spending time with him and Craig in middle and high school. He was always making us laugh..

  4. A tear streamed down my cheek when I saw this about a childhood friend. There are friendships in life that you make as kids you will remember forever. Throughout life whenever me and Scott’s path crossed it was like we were kids again. I can still hear his Mom hollering on the sidelines for her BabyBoy whether it was Soccer or Swimming she was always there.

    There is never any words that can stop the pain or heal the hurt but would like to extend my deepest condolences to the family.

  5. Dear Sheila,

    I did not know your husband very well but he left an impression on my son Peyton and I. Peyton was riding by your house on his bike a couple of years ago and his chain kept coming off. Scott was outside and stopped what he was doing and flipped the bike over, got dirt, oil and grease all over himself and fixed his bike. Peyton even came back over one day and he fixed it again. Scott advised me on how to do it myself and why that particular bike was not the right size, etc. for him and then told me exactly what kind and size to buy him. I wrote it all down, told my husband (who knows nothing about bikes) and we saved that paper and bought him exactly what Scott said to for Christmas. It goes straight to the obvious character of who Scott was to stop and help a child he didn’t even know.
