William James Tyler Palmer, 33, did not survive an automobile accident on Jan. 11. Tyler was a Moab resident since 2006. He is survived by his wife, Wendy and 3-year-old son, Gunner; his parents, Julie and Jim Palmer of Virginia Beach, Virginia; sister, Nicole Manley (Robbins) of Breckenridge, Colorado; and many loving friends and members of Tyler’s and Wendy’s extended families, including her Moab aunt and uncle, Eve Tallman and Ralph Ferrara.

Services were held Wednesday, Jan. 16 at 5 p.m. at the Sand Flats Recreation Area D Loop # D 18 (weather permitting) followed by a reception at the MARC located at 111 E 100 N, Moab, at 6 p.m. (In the event of inclement weather all services will to be held at the MARC starting at 5:30 p.m.) All who knew and loved Tyler and his family are welcome to join.

Tyler was a wonderful father to Gunner and a devoted husband to Wendy. Travel and photography brought him great joy and he was an adventurous outdoorsman and gifted athlete. He was a compassionate guiding light as a wilderness therapy leader and he turned many lives around. He is remembered as kind and considerate, full of love for his family and a solid anchor for his many friends.

In lieu of flowers, a GoFundMe account has been established for Wendy and Gunner. Condolences may be sent to www.spanishvalleymortuary.com.
