Ian Joseph Leroy Palmer was born in Monroe, Michigan on February 17, 1997. He was the son of Daniel Palmer and Rebecca (Parsons) Owens. Ian attended Jefferson Schools.
He was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed hunting and fishing. Ian was a kind-hearted, generous neighbor and enjoyed lending a helping hand to those around him, often offering to work in the yard. He also enjoyed working on bicycles.
Ian was always a pleasure to be around. He had a pleasant, happy go lucky attitude, and seemed to get along with everyone. Ian enjoyed laughing and making others laugh. He was gifted with the conversation, and it wasn’t unheard of for Ian to strike up dialogue with complete strangers. Ian’s love for others was never more evident than with his relationship with his own mother, since he was a self-declared “Momma’s Boy”.
