The RCC basketball coach at the time of Cheri's murder was none other than the late great Jerry Tarkanian. He was very successful at RCC.

Found an obit for a guy who went to HS and college with Cheri Jo. This guy was a badass athlete but never married or had any kids. He was one of Tarkanian's star players.

MR. HENRY LEE PALMER, JR. Affectionately known as (Teddy), passed away on September 7, 2011 at his home in Riverside. Services will be held on Friday September 16, 2011 at St. James Restoration Tabernacle Church, 4690 Victoria Ave. at Cridge, Riverside, CA 92507. Visitation will be held on Thursday, September 15, 2011 from 1-7PM. Tillman Riverside Mortuary, Inc. Riverside, CA 92507


Henry Lee Palmer, aka “Teddy” was the beloved son of the late Gertrude Terrell and Henry Lee Palmer Sr. and was born on December 21, 1946 in San Bernardino, California.

Teddy was a lifelong resident of Riverside, California, where he attended public schools and excelled in football and track and field. He was named Riverside City’s High Jump Champion. In 1964 he graduated from Ramona High School and went on to unroll in Riverside Community College, where he played basketball under the leadership of Jerry Tarkanian. During one game Teddy shot and make a fifty-three foot basket at the buzzer to lead his team to win the State Championship.

At the age of nineteen Teddy was drafted in the United States Army. His tour of duty took him overseas, where he fought in the Vietnam War. He was later Honorable Discharged.

For thirty years Teddy owned and operated Tax Payers Diversified Services. His success in business can be directly attributed to his strong work ethic and his attention to detail.

Teddy loved life, cooking and entertaining his family and friends. He particularly loved a good game of dominoes and regularly hosted domino games for the guys under the tree.

In his leisure he enjoyed gardening, working on his computer and listening to jazz music. He had a keen sense of style and was a “sharp” dresser, who always sported a “fedora”.

Teddy departed this life on September 7, 2011. He was preceded in death by his mother, Gertrude Terrell; father, Henry Lee Palmer Sr.; three brothers, Donald Palmer Sr.; Lorenzo Palmer and Jeffrey Palmer; three sisters, Dorothy Palmer, Barbara An Vaughn  and Henrietta Banks.

He leaves to cherish his memory: three sisters, Lagulia Tavie, Alice McAbee and DeVonn Chambliss; two brothers, Frankie Espinosa and Robert Beverly; one uncle, Joseph Terrell (Belma); one aunt, Ruth Harmison and host of nieces, nephew, relatives and friends.


Lucky Smith was the starting point guard for RCC. He was an amazing basketball player and was drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks, but had some serious knee injuries that cut his career short.
