Ward Lemons, 59, Las Vegas, NV.

Ward Lemons, 59, of Las Vegas, lost his battle with cancer March 25, 2018. Ward was born in 1958, Chicago, Illinois, to Foley and Janet Lemons and grew up in Tennessee. Ward joined the U.S. Marine Corps at 17 and served honorably as a Marine for 20 years. He was a veteran of the Gulf War and served as a Marine Security Guard at American Embassies in Cario, Paris, and as a detachment commander in Tunisia, Mexico, and Panama. Ward's legacy of service continued as a police officer for the Palm Springs Police Department and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. Ward worked as a Security Police Officer for the Nevada Test Site for many years and recently worked as a government security Quality Control Manager throughout the western region for Paragon Systems. Some of Ward's passions were gun safety education, hunting and fishing. He started his own business, My Gun and Me, to educate and train others in firearm safety. He taught many CCW classes in Ely, and always enjoyed hunting and fishing in the area. Ward was preceded in death by his father, Foley Lemon; mother, Janet Lemon; his brother, Jeff and sister, Nancy. Ward is survived by his wife, Lisa; his three children, Rachel, Garrett and Sara; his two grandchildren, Nathan and Cosette; and his sisters, Lori and Francis of Tennessee. Memorial service, with military honors, will be at 1 p.m. Saturday, April 7, at Palm Mortuary, 6701 N. Jones Blvd., Las Vegas, NV. 89131. Reception will follow. In lieu if flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Moore's Cancer Center at the University of California San Diego.
