Palmer Dyal

PALMER DYAL was a physicist whose research greatly extended the boundaries of our understanding of magnetics, establishing the history of the physical state of our moon, opening the door for future scientists to research the vast influences of magnetics in the universe. He died August 7, 2018 from injuries suffered from a fall on his morning run. Born October 27, 1933 in Odin, Indiana to Roland Dyal, manager at Kroger grocery and Stella (Sims) Dyal, former telephone operator, Palmer grew up in a family of scantly softened harsh realities. Palmer’s family left Indiana in the mid nineteen thirties driving west with all their possessions. Along the way they decided to abandon a planned move to Seattle and settle instead as farmers in Walford, Iowa in order to survive the Depression. Palmer earned his money by hunting and trapping during his free time. His father was a harsh disciplinarian who made home less than a haven on most days. Roland did help Palmer by trading a shotgun to a professional trapper in exchange for taking Palmer out to the woodland and teaching him how to trap and hunt. He met the beautiful and stylish Gladys Irene Wiley on a blind date which resulted in a devoted, adventure filled marriage celebrating two children, seven grandchildren, travel to every continent save Antarctica, and lasting one week shy of 63 years.
