THE family of a grandfather who shot himself in Littlehampton have paid tribute to him.
Brian Palmer, 63, died from his injuries on Friday, September 30.
His family have released this tribute:
“Brian’s loving family wish to acknowledge his sad and tragic death during the morning of September 30.
Brian happily dedicated his entire life to his family and friends, constantly striving to support all around him.
Brian was the person you knew you could rely upon when others faded, the electrician you could call out on Christmas day, and a wonderful husband, father, grand-dad, brother and son who put all around him before himself.
Brian will be truly and sadly missed by us all.”
Members of his family request that people respect their wish for privacy at this time.
A post mortem examination revealed that Brian, who lived in Horsham Road, died following a single shotgun wound to his head. He did not receive any other shotgun injuries.
An investigation into the circumstances leading up to his death is being conducted on behalf of the Coroner.
