SRE Mourns the Passing of Board Chairman Harvey Lemmon
Beloved co-op director and current board chairman, A. Harvey Lemmon of Woodbury, passed away unexpectedly Sunday. He joined the Southern Rivers Energy board of directors in 2009 and has served the last three years as Board Chairman.
Mr. Lemmon was born Nov. 30, 1946 in Virginia and graduated from Virginia Tech in 1969 with a bachelor’s degree in animal science. After graduation he married his wife, Nina, and moved to Georgia to work at Millarden Farms. There he worked as a herdsman and cattle manager for two years before starting his own cattle operation, Lemmon Cattle Farm in 1971.
He was a well-respected and dedicated board member at Southern Rivers Energy and numerous other boards and associations in the agriculture and cattle industries. He is survived by his wife, Nina, two sons, two grandchildren and many other relatives and close friends. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. He will be missed by all at Southern Rivers Energy.
