Ralph Lemmon, the longtime treasurer and controller of both Hanover Shoe Farms and Standardbred Horse Sales Company, has announced his impending retirement effective in early July of 2014.

Lemmon began working for Standardbred Horse Sales working the bid board in the late ‘60s. At the time he was employed by the Hanover Shoe Company. When the shoe company was sold to the C&J Clark Company in 1978, Lemmon, came to work full time as assistant treasurer and controller at Hanover Shoe Farms and Standardbred Horse Sales. He gradually rose to the position of treasurer of both companies.

He was also the president of Garden State Horse Sales Company from 2000 to 2010.

Lemmon and his wife, Jean, have purchased a home in Beaufort, South Carolina where they hope to spend a great deal of time with their two daughters, Donna and Nicky, and their respective families. Ralph also expects to be a frequent presence on the golf courses in the area.

Jim Simpson, Hanover's president, said, "They say that nobody is irreplaceable, but Ralph Lemmon comes pretty close. He will certainly be missed around here. He won't be leaving completely. He has promised that he will be back to work the Harrisburg sale where he is a fixture. We wish Ralph and his family nothing but health and prosperity in his well earned retirement."
