STEMCO announces passing of segment leader

STEMCO Thursday announced the passing of Richard Palmer. He was 59.

A long-time STEMCO employee, Palmer joined the company in 1987, and most recently held the position of segment business leader for wheel end products. STEMCO says employees and partners will remember Palmer as being well-respected, trusted, and willing to teach and help others, while always performing at a high level.

“We are heartbroken at the news of Richard’s passing,” says Todd Anderson, president of STEMCO. “He’s been an extremely valuable part of our team for decades, but we know his legacy is far greater than that. We will miss him tremendously.”

Palmer began his career with STEMCO as district sales manager, a position he held for 10 years. He then served as western regional manager for 13 years and southeast regional manager for eight years before being promoted to segment business leader for wheel end products in December 2017.

Palmer leaves behind his wife Becky and their daughter Alaina.

STEMCO appreciates the condolences and support from industry partners, customers and friends. For information on the pending memorial service and/or any additional details, please check for updates on the STEMCO Facebook page.
