In Loving Memory ~
Roderick Stanley Palm, "Rod", "Grandad", of Tofino, B.C. passed away peacefully and on his own terms on March 7th, 2023, at age 80.
He will be greatly missed by his 8 children, daughters; Coral, Pearl, Naeco & Nixie, sons; Paul, Gil, Fion & Shell, his 6 grandkids; Ariel, Marina (R.I.P), Cayleigh, Cleaver, Keale & Hanna, 3 great-grandkids; Hailee, Chanel- Nautica & Isla-Bay, and his sister Janice (Walt).
Growing up in Trail, B.C., he met his first love, the ocean, at age 19.
She caught his attention and devotion until his last day. From capturing giant octopus to discovering multiple shipwrecks, his coastal endeavours have been chronicled over the years and the stories will continue to be told. Rod founded the Strawberry Island Marine Research Society, and his work carries on.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Rod's name would be appreciated to Tofino Hospital Foundation - for palliative care, P.O. Box 190, Tofino, B.C., V0R 2Z0
