Meadow Lemon III was 83. Not only was his time with the Harlem Globetrotters a highlight of my life, but he was someone any person could look up to.
Lemon was also an actor and a Minister and played for 22 years with the Globetrotters. I had seen him in person a few times and was always entertained by his antics. A highly talented man with the gifts God gave him.
Another part of my childhood has gone away. RIP Lemon, you will be very, very missed, especially by me. What makes it even sadder is that he passed away on my birthday, Dec. 27th.
