Tragically Palmiero and a friend died in an auto accident driving home for Christmas in his Sophomore year. We were recently provided with a copy of a scrapbook by Rose Van Eck, Carmen’s sister.

Hope this column provides an insight into Carmen both the man and athlete. Not sure of the Chronological order, but every attempt was made to provide accuracy of events. Page 8 continues with Palmiero's Brooklawn Legion tenure.
