Rev. A.C. McLemore, 84, a “good and faithful servant”, adoring husband for 61 years, minister of the gospel and loving father, grandfather and great-grandfather, has ended an earthly life of sacrificial service to his family, his country and those in need, and began a life eternal in the presence of Our Father on Sunday, Nov. 25, 2012.
