He was born Feb. 17, 1931, in Shreve to Kenneth L. and Betty (Phillips) Armstrong and married Shirley Alexander on June 10, 1956, celebrating 56 years of marriage. She survives.

He was a graduate of Shreve High School and served his country stateside during the Korean War in the U.S. Army. He retired from Columbia Gas, after many years of service.

Lemoyne was a member of Ripley Church of Christ, where he had served as a deacon, elder, and Sunday school teacher. He served on Shreve Village council, and was a member of Farm Bureau and Shreve Lions Club. He was very active in the Triway Capers and will fondly be remembered by those who knew him for his keen sense of humor.

He was the proprietor of Armstrong Miniature Donkey Farm, raising miniature donkeys, sheep and angora goats, and loved taking them to parades for others to enjoy. His family will always cherish their camping trips to Mohican State Park, going to church, and his kind heart which always led him to helping others.

Surviving in addition to his wife, are children, Deb (John) Fleming of Canfield, Cheryl (Joe) Collins and Jack (Lauren) Armstrong, both of Wooster and Joel (Lori) Armstrong of Shreve; grandchildren, Matt, Drew, Zach, Clayton, Gabe, Kathryn, Sophie, Logan, Mason, Chandler and Taylor; brothers, Gerald (Mary Lynn) Armstrong of Shreve and Richard "Pete" (Cindy) Armstrong of Wooster; and a sister, Donna Wachtel of Lake Buckhorn.
