Stanley Taylor Lemons, the county magistrate for District 1, died at his home Sunday evening.
He was 87.
“He was a real stand-up leader for the county,” Harrison County Judge-Executive Alex Barnett said Monday afternoon. “He was kind of quiet, but firm - he knew what he wanted.”
While it’s hard to determine whether Lemons was the longest serving magistrate ever in the county, at just under 24 years of service, he was certainly the longest in recent history.
He was elected to his post in 1984.
