Roy Lemmon, Sr.
Born in Rover, Tennessee, military and marriage took Roy to other parts of the country. While living in Detroit in 1948, he started learning the trade of heating and air conditioning working as an apprentice. He eventually moved his family back to Memphis where he became the lead technician at Bell & Hardin A/C Company.
Roy eventually partnered with Bob Cochran opening C & L Heating and Air Conditioning Company. The company thrived as many homeowners were first introduced to central air conditioning.
Desiring to have his own company, Roy and Bob (Cochran) sold C & L. In 1974, Roy started Lee’s Air Conditioning Company, which eventually became Lemmon Heating & Air Conditioning Company.
Roy spent his lifetime giving his customers excellent service and building his company by treating his customers as he himself would want to be treated—with honesty and respect.
Roy’s greatest joy was his family. He and his wife had five children. Roy lived to see 14 grandchildren, 27 great-great grandchildren, and three great-great grandchildren.
Roy was “born again” on March 17, 1953. He would be the first to tell you that he was not perfect, just forgiven. Roy loved his Savior and was not ashamed to let everyone know. Besides running a business, he was also a church bus driver, a Sunday school teacher, a church deacon, and a faithful witness for the Lord. He passed out thousands of gospel tracts and posters. Until the time of his death in 2016, he continued to pass out posters of The Ten Commandments and The Pledge of Allegiance to everyone with whom he came in contact.
