I called you a friend, I called you family, I called you grandpa, I called you a friend to me for all those years when I was young. I don't know what I would do without you and still don't know what I do without you. It leaves my heart with a small hole inside, leaving that hole with memories filled of joy and happiness for all those years I had with you. Searching for Dino tracks and eggs in

You, Peyton Lee, were the greatest benefactor a man could ever have. I recall that day in the summer of 1952 when you (covered with poison ivy!) roared into my life. Remember? You had ridden your motorcycle down from Yale to be a counselor at Camp Wakanda, our Winchester, Virginia, Methodist district youth camp, where I was an 18-year-old junior counselor.Your love of Japan was palpable—and contagious. As you talked about Japan and your life as a J-3, I caught

We are truly saddened by the sudden loss of Peyton, especially after seeing him on Christmas morning when he seemed so “chipper.” We’ve known Peyton and Susan for close to 30 years. We have utilized Peyton’s handyman skills at our home to finish the octagonal windows in the storage shed, to build the space under the stairs, and to repair numerous projects over the years. He always made coming to fix something at our home a priority which was greatly

Uncle Peyton has always had a special place in my heart. He would tell me stories of the things he and his sister, Louisa (my mom), would do, like having swimming races in Lake Nojiri. He & Susan became a personal support to me in 1983 when I moved to Richmond with my son, Richard Henry(1yr), following a divorce. Then after my marriage to Brant and becoming a pastor's wife, he was always a source of comfort and wisdom when

Carolee and I extend our condolences to the family of Peyton Palmore.

In each of our lives, there are people whose actions alter the course of our life. For me, and for other missionary kids raised in Nagoya in the 1960's, Peyton Palmore was one of those people. Together with a handful of others, including my father Gaylen Gilbertson, Arlene Kelly, Stan Manierre, Clark Offner, Claire Baldwin and others, he was a "founder of Nagoya International School, which became the center

Dear Susan and Family, Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Although I did not know him well, I was always blessed by our times together at family times and weddings. I particularly appreciated him attending our daughter Laura's wedding, and representing her grandmother's family. He was always warm and positive. I loved to hear him and his siblings describe memories of their childhood and share their love of the Lord and of music with us. What a sweet

We are deeply saddened to hear of sudden loss of Payton (Pal-san). He will always be remembered as a great friend and a mentor.
We have so many happy memories of spending time with him at Japanese lessons. He have taught us that learning is a big part of what makes life interesting. We will miss him terribly...
With much love and sympathy,

We were blessed to call Peyton (and Susan) family, through the marriage of his daughter, Paula Jean. We are sadden by this news of his passing, yet smile to know heaven has gained a beautiful & quick smile, a forever-positive outlook, and an angel who will be remembered for his un-ending Christian-love and respect for his fellow man. We recall his stories he proudly told of his daughters & his travels and also the kindness we witnessed him extending to

I was very saddened to learn of Peyton's passing. He was an avid learner, taking our courses in subjects as disparate as Economic Issues and Gilbert & Sullivan. I remember his voice as clear as day. I do so wish I had known his background in Japan and WWII. We had more in common than I ever knew when he was with us.
