Gregory Allen (Moss) Palmer "Cruiser" was born in Tampa, Florida on August 14, 1965 and made his transition on September 14, 2017. He is survived by the love of his life Carla Gail Young, mother Marynell Butler Palmer, father Dennis Palmer and wife Barbara, father M. Allen Moss and wife Debbie, sister and brother-in-law Denise and John Zentler with niece Charlotte Mary, brother and sister-in-law Jason and Marilyn Moss with nephew Jackson and niece Leah Nora, brother and sister in-law, Johnny and Susan Palmer with nieces Whitney and Isabel, sister Peggy Corbin with nephew Joe and niece Allyse. His uncles and aunts include Jim and Karen Butler, John and Margie Butler, Linda and Pete Stahl, Ley and J. Brent Pichard, Sarah and Scott Coates, William F. Lang, Jr, Ken and Cheri Bett among many other Aunts, Uncles and Cousins. It is not possible to list all of his immediate and extended family and friends as he loved, and was loved, by so many.

Greg graduated H. B. Plant High School, attended St. Petersburg Jr. College and Richland College in Dallas and was a member of the Unity Church. His careers included professional wrestling, security and management of restaurants, events and facilities. He was a Perpetual Member of Masons and a past Worshipful Master of Fellowship Lodge.

Greg blessed the lives of all who knew him. With his quick wit, sunny disposition and positive attitude, there was never a time when he couldn't see the brighter side of any situation. He was loved by everybody who knew him, mostly accredited to the fact that he loved everyone he met. He never encountered a person in whom he was unable find something positive.
