William “Paul” Palmos, 73 years old, passed away on Sunday, August 29, 2021, at Chester County Hospital from Congestive Heart Failure. He was known to be a loving, gentle, kindhearted, and generous brother, uncle, and friend to all who knew him. “Paul” shared 45 years of marriage with Sherry Lynn, his deceased wife and life time partner. He leaves behind a host of extended and loving family members and friends: Mr. and Mrs. George Palmos, Mr. and Mrs. Jon Palmos, Mr. and Mrs. Eric Arreola, good friends, Grennae Bartram and Chris Cloud, cousins and many other friends in Texas and in Pennsylvania. “Paul” was a retired Navy Veteran, class ranking CW02, who served time both in Vietnam and Lebanon. He also tenured 30 years working as an insurance agent at Truckers Insurance Services, Kennett Square, Pa. “Paul” loved Rock and Roll Music, spending time with his grandson, Stratton Leigh, sharing quality time with his good friends Joe and Barbie Stoltzfus, and dropping in on family and friends for dinner or just to visit. Last but not least, he enjoyed riding his John Deere Lawn Mower. Many times he spoke of just riding his John Deere into the sunset. This sweet man will be missed by all.

    I am deeply saddened by Paul’s passing. Paul and I met when his family moved from Texas to Rockwood PA. We were good friends throughout our high school days. One of my fondest memories is when my wife and I visited him in Norfolk VA upon his military retirement. We remained good friends throughout and had numerous business contacts (I worked for an insurance company his agency dealt with), and he often would stop in to visit when he made it back to Rockwood. Gloria and I will miss him dearly. May God rest his soul.

    I am deeply saddened by Paul’s passing. He will join loved ones in heaven. Paul and I met when his family moved from Texas to Rockwood PA. We lived on the same street several houses apart. We were good friends throughout our high school days. I got married, he went to the Navy. One of my fondest memories is when my wife and I visited him, Sherry Lynn and his other family members in Norfolk VA on the ship he made home for so many years upon his military retirement. We remained good friends throughout and had numerous business contacts (I worked for an insurance company his agency dealt with), and he often would stop in to visit when he and Sherry Lynn made it back to Rockwood, Sherry Lynn’s home town. Gloria and I will miss him dearly. May God rest his soul.

    He was an amazing man that could make anyone laugh! He took me to my first dollar store and made me not want a tattoo until I was 41!

    Paul & Sherry will be missed. We had lots of laughs & great times in Norfolk, VA while your cousin, James, & he were both stationed there in late 1970’s. Prayers & hugs to all the family.
