    Rest In Peace Rompipalle. 💔
    Going to miss sharing our love of country music, tagging each other on socials, trying to get the one up on each other on the next big thing in Country music. Lol, I’ll cherish the last concert we went to in the One tonner with you banging on how clean the windows were. Had you only known that I cleaned those bloody windows just cause you were getting in the car. Mr Fuss pot!!
    I Love you Mal, im really really going to miss having you around mate. 💔

      If the family would like it I’ll be willing to play one of his favourite songs on the day

    Uncle Mal, Thankyou.
    Thankyou for being strong, yet ever so sensitive. Thankyou for making me feel safe and loved in your company. Thanks for those big bear hugs. Thanks for understanding me and believing in my adventures.
    Thankyou for being a support through my teenage years when home life was a bit challenging. Thanks for allowing me to adopt Shaz as my favourite dog.
    Thanks for always having Oakleigh as a place to visit and stay.
    Thanks for the chats about the mountains, where you would ride and I would bush walk. Thanks for the times at the lodge.
    Thanks for letting “Dougie” to be a household name in our family.
    Thanks for educating me that “Pepsi makes you sexy and coke makes you choke”
    Thankyou sincerely for your efforts at home – all your blood, sweat and tears to improve it. I will cherish the concreting and brick work for years to come.
    I was driving a truck this week and knew you would think “Ken Bruce has gone mad” but knew you would be proud.
    I will always remember how big you loved and how much effort you put into everything. Rest easy.
    Love always, Chook xo

    Rest in peace Mal. In the short time I knew you, your warmth, generosity, and shared love for motorcycles left a lasting impression. Your absence will be felt, and you will be truly missed. My thoughts are with Roberta and her family during this difficult time.

    Mal. May you RIP. Although l haven’t seen Mal and the family
    for a while, you were never far
    from my thoughts. Mal you will be sadly missed. You bought
    sunshine to many of us with your
    wonderful “Mal”smile. One memory that Mal and Roberta were part of was the building of
    the “Michael Palmer Track” at
    Nepean Special School and many others who contributed thank you. Roberta and family my deepest sympathy and thoughts are with you at this sad time.

    Hard to believe you are gone Mal. The pain must have been overwhelming. We miss you and your creative ideas … you always found a “value add” to take a concept to the next level.

    Sincere condolences to family and all those who are feeling the sense of pointless loss.

    May you know true peace now Mal.

    The shock has not settled.

    I can only think about your beautiful boys and their broken hearts. You were such a lovely addition to our block of units. You were always happy for a chat, there was always something stupid to laugh about, always happy to help anyone around you, such a giving person. It breaks my heart that we didn’t really see YOU.

    May you rest in peace now, and may your beautiful boys remember how much you loved them. Such a doting and proud dad. My respects and condolences to the family.

    You will be remembered by the staff of St Peters as a loving dad who always put his hand up to help out especially during working bees. Being so generous with your time and expertise . You will be missed but know our school community will look after your family. Rest in peace.

    R.I.P Brother Mal.
    So many fond memories of times spent together. You were always so generous with your time especially when it came to helping those less fortunate than you.
    I think back to all the work you put into helping design the “race track” at Nepean Special School for our boy Michael and his friends.
    The time you’d taken Michael to see his Mighty Bombers play live. I remember the massive smile on Michaels face to this day when he came home.
    Then there was the day you bribed the Garfield Golf course manager to allow Michael on the greens in his wheelchair whilst we hacked our way around the golf course. Always giving,always generous with your time. Always busy doing something.
    Say gday to our beautiful boy Michael in heaven. Tell him Mum and Dad love him and still think of him every day.
    Going to miss you bro.

    Hey Mal,
    Unfortunately we never got to know each other even though we are blood.
    I remember bumping into you at the Garfield golf course years back and first thing you said to me was – “well – you are definitely a bloody Palmer”
    We had a chuckle and some small talk and that was it, I don’t know much about our blood lines and history but you struck me as a guy pretty much like myself, easy going, easy to approach and always having a laugh. It made me feel good.
    So sad you are gone, all our thoughts are with your family, rest in peace mate.
    All our love, Damo, Teneille, Zahli, Mila & Deacon.

    Hey Mal

    Although we never got to know each other I do remember crossing paths when I was 13 or 14 years old,
    Although I don’t know any of the Palmer family you came across as a kind person with a good sense of humour

    RIP mate,
    my love and thoughts are with your family
