Manchester Mayor Ted Gatsas said "Lemire will be missed. When he was in charge of Parks and Recreation, he was always at every event. Whether it was Babe Ruth, American Legion, ice hockey, you name it, Clem had the place ready and he was always in attendance in case something needed to be done."
Ludwig also recalled Lemire as a hands-on outdoor enthusiast. "He'd take a chainsaw out of his car and get the job done," he said, adding with a laugh, "He probably took few pieces of wood home to burn."
