Charles "Chuck" Wray Lemons, 72, of Boiling Springs lost his battle with cancer on September 01, 2017 in his home surrounded by his family.

In 1968 he married Jane Chambers, of Shelby and this past June they celebrated their 49th anniversary. Chuck's passion for horses was realized through his work as a farrier in the Cleveland County and surrounding areas for over 45 years. He was a friend and mentor to many in the community and will always be remembered for his willingness to help anyone in need.
