Public Address Announcer
(May 5, 2011) – It is with the greatest sadness that the staff and
management of Anderson Speedway announces that another of our Figure 8
Veterans has passed away.
Bill Lemon, 75, of Pendleton and formerly of Markleville, passed away on May
1st in Seton Hospital following a lengthy illness. I best remember Bill for
his domination in the figure 8 in it's hay day, Bill was National Crown
Champion in 1963, 67 and 69 and won hundreds of races in his 40 year career
at Sun Valley (Anderson Speedway). I really enjoyed watching him race as he
was a clean, smooth gentleman always when on the track.
Left to cherish his memory are his children: sons - Bill (Lemon) Muterspaugh,
1996 National Crown Champion Tim Lemon, Jeff Lemon, Mark Wisehart,
daughters- Robin (Lemon) Phillips (companion: John Mahaffey), Misty (Lemon)
Buck, Cindy (Roy) Thomas, Tracie Hughee, Barb Lemon, and the remainder of
the family plus many special friends.
Friends may call Noon to 2:00 pm Friday, May 6th at Rozelle-Johnson Funeral
Home in Anderson. Graveside services will be conducted at 2:30 pm at East
Maplewood Cemetery with burial to follow.
Memorials may be sent to the family through the funeral home. Condolences
