Tom Palmer's son, Franklin, and daughter Danielle, just reported on facebook that their Dad, Tom, of D2F covers, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly yesterday at his desk. I'm sure many of us have purchased Tom's covers for our steels, amps, volume pedals, etc. Tom always put out a quality product and was a great person. Rest in peace, my friend, you will be sorely missed in the steel community.

Here's a photo of Tom...

May I offer my deepest sincere condolences on the loss of your Dad. Every time I called and ordered a cover he always went the extra mile to be sure that I received exactly what I wanted. It was always a pleasure to talk with him. He will be greatly missed by our steel guitar community. His D2F covers and leg bags were always of the utmost quality and fit. Tom always followed up with a call a week later to make sure my order fit correctly. He was a caring businessman and a true gentleman.

Condolences to the family.

Tom called me 2 hours before he passed, I was not able to talk as I was setting up for a gig, Patti took the call and I returned it today, only to hear the sad news What a shocker.

Tom was a giver, if more people lived as Tom did the world would be a much nicer place.

I will miss you old friend.

I just heard the very sad and shocking news myself via a phone call from Tom's son, Franklin. Tom will indeed be missed by everyone who knew him, especially those within our steel guitar community. My wife, Kathy and I would like to offer our deepest condolences to Tom's family.

So sorry to hear this. I have bought dozens of covers from Tom and spent hours on the phone with him talking about gear. Was always hoping to meet him some day.
My condolences to his family and friends.

Tom was a great guy and had a successful business that produced a wonderful product. Every amp I own has a D2F cover. Condolences to Tom's family on their loss.

Very sorry to learn of Tom's passing. I shared a table at 3rd and Lindsley with Tom, Ray Montee and Gerry Petrovey to enjoy the Time Jumpers a few years ago. What a nice guy Tom was. My deepest sympathy to his family and friends, RIP Tom.

I couldn't believe this. I just ordered a cover, and spoke with him last month. All my covers are D2F Covers.

If I'm not mistaken , didn't his wife,Jan, pass away less than a year ago? That could have put a strain on Tom.

I never met him but have a good number of his D2F covers and leg bags here in Beijing, the USA and in Thailand. His products were quite attractive and meant to last a long time . Condolences to his children and other family members. Steve t

I learned the very sad news today and was heart broken. Tom was one of my good friends. We went to many Steel Guitar shows together and shared many good times. He will be missed very much. Our condolences to his family. Ray and Sally Montee

I'm stunned. Tom called after the TSGA show to tell me how much he missed getting to see me. He had been caring for his wife for several years and didn't get to shows. After he lost her last year he went to TSGA this March. I didn't go this year and he wanted to see how I was doing. Tom was a friend from the first time we met and was a true Christian gentleman. I will sure miss our visits.

I will surely miss my friend, Tom. He lost his wife just months ago after years of Devote care for her in her progressing illness. I just talked to him about 3 weeks ago and he was looking forward to playing out again and wery optimistic about life.

Very sad news. Tom was a good friend and skilled craftsman. The last time I talked to him, he said he might
expand his business to making covers for other instruments such as keyboards, accordions, and microphones.
Anyone who ever spoke with him had a friend for life.

Condolences to the family and RIP Tom.
