I was fortunate enough to get to know JL by ending up on a softball team(1995)with only a couple of guys I knew. I hit off instantly with the Xerox gang. What a great bunch of guys! They welcomed me and it led to some great times and friendships. JL was always a gentleman and a positive person to be around. I had a party here at my house either 1997 or 1998. I had a microphone and speaker set up in the garage. Myself and two girls at the party sang “Sweet Gypsy Rose” by Tony Orlando and Dawn. We pulled it off. JL was so pumped for us and I remember him hugging me. The day I found out about JL’s passing, from Smitty, I was driving in my car listening to my music. “Sweet Gypsy Rose” was the second song that came on. I think that was JL’s way of letting me know that he’s ok. He was such a classy person. He was definitely someone that I looked up to!💙🙏😢-Don Lennon

I started working with John " JL" Lemond in 1990 at Xerox, from day 1 he had a smile on his face and was cracking jokes. An extremely easy going personality and people were drawn to him by that. He made work fun. At one point he was our supervisor but you never knew it because he never put himself above anyone, he was a same level guy, dig in lets get it done. JL grew quiet a following of us young guys at Xerox, myself, Webo, Jay Dizz, Smitty and Rickey Mac. We were quite the crew, we played Company softball together, Bar softball together, Army Football Games,parties alot of fun times with JL. He was the glue that everyone stuck too. 4 of us were in a Zoom Chat Friday night reminiscing on how funny this man was, we all have JL stories for weeks. Like Tim "Webo" Weber said in his memory piece JL took Webo in and they became instant brothers he was a very special guy and will always be. Too his family and friends the Xerox Boys send our condolensces and we grieve with you at this very difficult time...SIP my friend "JL" until we meet again...
