November 28, 1935 - June 3, 2022

Gary Porter Lemmon, age 86, of Tyler, Texas passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family on June 3, 2022.

He was born November 28, 1935, to Maxine and Gus Leo, and was later adopted by his stepfather Al Lemmon.

Gary graduated from Texas A&M University in 1958 and married Janice (Jan) Norman in 1959. Gary and Janice were active members of Pollard United Methodist Church of Tyler for over 50 years and were dedicated volunteers within the church and the greater Tyler community.
