Another Great Guy Passes On

Recommended Posts

It is with great sadness that I pass along this information. Wray Palmer passed away this last Sunday of cardiac complications. He had been battling cancer as well. I don't have details of any services, but will post them here when I find out.

I've had the pleasure of knowing Wray for over 30 years, having first met him when I was a teeny weeny little apprentice. We would cross paths occaisionally throughout our careers. He was a straight up dude and called 'em as he seen 'em. I really enjoyed working with him and just having a BS session over coffee. He is survived by a large family which I know he was extremely close to.


I'm not sure of who all Wray worked for and perhaps someone could fill in here. I know he worked for Highland and Delta Helicopters.


My sincere condolences to all the family.

Godspeed Wray.

I have nothing but the fondest memories of 'grumpy grampa'.

It was my term of endearment for him.

An awesome wrench, we spent time in the bush and I learned quite a bit from him.


Wray was at the Alberta Government, came to Highland, went to Delta after that.


My condolences to his family.
