Brian Michael Palm of Chicago passed away at the end of September in Harvard, Illinois.

Brian was born on March 21, 1976 and grew up in Chicago. Following service in the Coast Guard, Brian attended Columbia College in Chicago, graduating with a Bachelor degree in Fine Arts. He worked as a freelance photographer, incorporating his passion for architecture and all things old. He was recognized by the Chicago Tribune and featured on WTTW as he photographed endangered Chicago buildings.

Brian loved camping and spending time outdoors, especially at the family summer cottage on Long Lake in Wisconsin.

Brian will be remembered for his warmth and kindness, generosity with his time and talent, deep intelligence, quick wit, and boundless interest in the world near and far.

Brian married the love of his life, Sarah, in 2001. He was the proud and devoted father of Gavin, Turner, and Silas, and God daughter Jasmine.
