|Let the memory of Eric be with us forever|
Marine Lance Cpl. Eric A. Palmisano, 27, of Florence, Wis.; assigned to 1st Transportation Support Battalion, 1st Marine Logistics Group, I Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Pendleton, Calif.; died April 2 after the truck he was riding in rolled over in a flash flood near Asad, Iraq. The incident also resulted in the death of six other Marines and a Navy petty officer. Palmisano was listed as Duty Status - Whereabouts Unknown until his body was recovered April 11. Beloved son of Roberta ''Bobbie'' and Herb Samme and the late Salvatore L. Palmisano II; loving brother of Salvatore (Darlene); dearest grandson of Sam and Marie Palmisano and Bob and Gloria McCauslin; also survived by his devoted fiancee, Claire Kohake; and his faithful canine companion, Hannah; fond uncle, nephew, cousin and friend to many. Eric will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him. Ooh Rah and Semper Fi.
Have a suggestion for us?
