Arnold Palmer’s Brother, Jerry Palmer Jr., Passes Away

Jerry Palmer Jr., the younger brother of golf legend Arnold Palmer, has passed away at the age of 72.

Although he didn’t enjoy the fame of his older brother, Palmer Jr. also found tremendous joy being on the golf course. The Penn State graduate served as a general manager and golf course superintendent at the Latrobe Country Club and was a member of the Golf Course Superintendents’ Association of America. He was also an avid snow skier, water skier and runner who had a strong love of animals. 

A single father, Palmer Jr. is survived by his two children Deken and Amanda.
