Cameron Palmer

September 14, 1989 — October 9, 2021

  Cameron Bell Palmer, 32, of Forest Park, passed away on October 9, 2021. Although an introvert by nature, Cameron enjoyed being around his family and friends. People were drawn to his warm spirit. He was always willing to lend a hand to those in need. Everyone knows he was a kind, gentle soul, with that Big Smile, who we all loved very much. He will be missed. 💓 

Cameron was the oldest and only son, of three. Born September 14, 1989, in Lawrenceville, GA. He was a good son, a good brother to his sisters, a good uncle and good grandson always showing respect at all times. This is how he was raised. Cameron took that training seriously, and he carried that on to the day of his death. Never mischievous. Well loved by his teachers because of his calm demeanor and humble obedient attitude. He was a sweet, kind and chivalrous little gentlemen-like professor.

When Cameron first started school, after saying “I Love You”, the last thing I would say to him everyday before he went to school was, “Remember who you represent” and he would turn back around to me with a big smile and say, “ Jehovah!” Cameron believed fully in the resurrection promised by Christ Jesus “…the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out…”-John 5:28, 29. Cameron still loved Jehovah and his Reigning King Christ Jesus and uttered these same words to me just only 3 weeks before his death. He knew and believed fully in his heart what he “needed to be doing to be pleasing to my Heavenly Father” and “I know what I want for myself…don’t worry mom, believe or not, I did listen.”

Although Cameron would experience teasing, sarcastic remarks, even sometimes be bullied in school, most of the time he would never even catch those cues. At other times when he did recognize it, he would just hold it in and bottle it up, but he never would be spiteful or return the punches back or do anything hurtful. Our family would like to make you aware of just one more of the Devil’s many disgusting tactics. It’s called ‘Adult Autistic Mate Crimes’. It’s more common than you think. Please let this be an example for you and others. Please don’t let your loved one or anyone you know go through this kind of abuse don’t go through the same thing my family has and is going through, as we do not want a repeat of this horrendous situation.

Cameron graduated in 2008. During Cameron’s senior year in high school, he attended Morrow high school while consecutively attending Eula Wilburn Ponds Perry Career Center’s dual enrollment program for college credits where he was studying architectural engineering. At graduation, to Cameron’s surprise, he was presented with one of the highest honors of the ceremony, an ‘Executive Directors Honorary’ trophy in recognition to his commitment and perfect attendance throughout his entire four-year high school career. Cameron later continued his education at Atlanta Area Technical College majoring in Accounting.

Cameron began working at The Kroger Company in the Fall of 2008, right out of high school. He worked to the best his abilities, trying to never miss any days and be punctual- even it meant walking several miles one way. He had worked just about every position, with the exception of The Pharmacy department. This year he transitioned over to the warehouse. Last month was his 13th anniversary. He enjoyed many of his co-workers and they grew to belove him as more than a workmate, but truly cared for him personally.

Cameron was perfectly content with just being around with family, friends, listening to good music playing his video games, watching the Falcons and the Hawks play. Oh, we can’t forget his binge-watching Martin, Family Matters with Steve Urkel and Fresh Prince of Bel Air… over and over again. He even knew what the next lines were. He would laugh so hard as if he were just seeing it for the first time. And don’t get him started on historical facts or spurting out statistical facts from the top of his head that no one else would even think about, let alone, could even remember. Those were just some of the few quirky things we loved so much about Cam, and we are going to miss so very much.

  He leaves behind to honor his memory his mother, Camiel Palmer of Ellenwood; stepfather, Marvin Gates of Conyers; sisters, Cariel L. Palmer of Riverdale and Carinne A. Walker and her husband, Sean of Ellenwood; niece, Sarai McGroom; grandmother, Jacqueline Wynn-Stitt of Memphis, TN; and his best friend who was like a brother, Chris Smith of Lake City, and a host of cousins
