He was born on January 5, 1970, in Saratoga Springs, NY the son of the late George H. Palmateer Sr and Sandra Palmateer.
He was a master mechanic and loved restoring old cars and trucks. He was especially proud to have a son who shared his love for cars. Together, they restored an old classic for his son to drive.
