Scientific Wrestler Champion in Life Growing up with a Champion
Personal Side of a Professional Wrestler
Hello, I am Gail Palmer, the daughter of a pro wrestler, Walter Palmer. I am writing this book to tell the fascinating story of his life. My father began with the goal of becoming a Medical Doctor. He just happened to be exceptional in a popular sport that he enjoyed. With his focus on his medical career, life threw a curve that redirected him into the popular sport of wrestling.
Advantage of Knowledge
Walter’s college education gave him an upper hand in wrestling. His calculated thinking while knowing the points of anatomy provided him with an advantage. He was a modest man, focused on providing for his family and the educated thinking of a businessman.
About Gail Palmer
I was born in Chicago, Illinois but currently reside in Tucson, Arizona. I raised my children and had a career in the airline industry, beginning at United Airlines. A love for the southwest brought me to Tucson in 1986. Later my parents and mentally disabled sister joined me as well. Along with my husband, I started a tire and automotive dealership.
The Palmer Family had a lifelong love of dogs. I have been doing volunteer Therapy Dog work with my Yorkshire Terrier for the last 7-years. Gypsy Joe and Gorgeous George were the names of some of our dogs. I was close with my father, Walter Palmer, and am honored to share some of my family experiences.
