Cliff Limeberry
Cliff Limeberry loved his harness horses and loved to see them race at the Harrison County Fair.
"He was probably their biggest promoter, to keep harness racing active at the fair," said Fred Cammack, Limeberry's friend and colleague on the Harrison County Agricultural Society's fair board. "He always considered it a profession, even though it was a hobby for him."
Without Limeberry's efforts, harness racing at the fair might not have survived, his friends and associates say.
Clifford W. Limeberry, the retired owner and CEO of Limeberry Lumber Co. in Corydon, died Sunday, Jan. 24, at Norton Hospital in Louisville, after a three-year battle with cancer. He was 78.
His absence will leave a big gap among the dwindling number of standardbred horse owner-trainers at the fairgrounds in Corydon.
Limeberry was a patient trainer who had a special talent for bringing younger horses, the two-year-olds, along slowly and successfully. His son, Dave Limeberry, said his dad must have trained at least 30 two-year-olds, and only two never won a race.
"He enjoyed it and did a lot for the business," said Corydon's Donnie Conrad, himself a successful owner, trainer and driver.
Limeberry never won the Hambletonian, but he had good horses that raced at Louisville Downs and the Indiana and Kentucky Fair circuit. His horses won several Sire Stakes in Kentucky that had purses of $35,000. Dave estimates his dad won between $500,000 and $750,000 with his horses over a quarter of a century.
Dave Limeberry said he got his dad interested in standardbred horses. When he got out of high school, he bought a horse instead of a car. However, horse racing was more expensive that he thought, and his dad bailed him out. But by that time, Cliff was hooked, too, on harness horses.
Conrad, 50, drove Limeberry's horses for five or six years. He said Limeberry always had good horses.
"He was good to drive for. He liked to win, but if they got beat, he never said nothing. He knew his horses."
When Limeberry was 15, his father died. Cliff took over running his family's Orange County farm. He later became a foreman at the shipyards in Evansville but quit to join the Navy. He served on a supply ship in the South Pacific in World War II. Dave said his dad was in Tokyo when the Japanese surrendered, ending World War II, and he could see where the ceremony took place on the U.S.S. Missouri. 
Limeberry married the former Alice Tindall and moved to her hometown, Corydon. He was a hard worker. He started driving dump trucks and then made pallets for TV crates. He ran a milk route early in the morning until early afternoon, then went to the skid factory, then ran a cigarette route for several hours at night. He did that seven days a week for many years, Dave said.
He joined Alice's father in the roof and siding business, which eventually turned into Limeberry Lumber on old S.R. 135 in north Corydon. The present building was put up in 1963. Cliff sold the company to his son in 1980 and Cliff went into retirement, spending more time with his horses and fair board activities.
"He really enjoyed his retirement," Dave said, recalling one incident in particular. Cliff, Dave and Dave's son, Scott, just recently spent a couple of weeks together touring Ireland and Germany. Cliff also got much pleasure out of watching his grandchildren play basketball.
Limeberry was a native of Orange County. He was born July 14, 1920, the son of the late George and Mary Hickman Limeberry.
He was a director of the Harrison County Agricultural Society from 1964 to 1999, and a member of Pisgah Masonic Lodge 32, Scottish Rite in Indianapolis, Indiana Standard Bred Association, U.S. Trotting Association and the Corydon United Methodist Church.
He was awarded the Sagamore of the Wabash by Gov. Robert D. Orr for his efforts at promoting harness racing and "keeping the fair going through some pretty lean years," Dave said, and he was also a Kentucky Colonel.
In addition to his wife and son, Limeberry is survived by a daughter, Sharon M. LaHue of Corydon; a brother, Andrew Limeberry of Paoli; two sisters, Alice Baker of Orleans and Mary F. Elliott of Paoli; and four grandchildren.
The funeral was Wednesday, Jan. 27, at Beanblossom-Cesar Funeral Home in Corydon with burial in Cedar Hill Cemetery. The Revs. Webster Oglesby and Richard Catlett officiated. Beth Frank was organist and Donna Rastefor was vocalist.
Military rites were performed at the grave site by VFW Post 2950 of Corydon.
The family suggests memorial gifts to the Corydon United Methodist Church or the American Cancer Society.
Pallbearers were John, Gerald and Bob Limeberry, Phillip Baker, Ancil Cave and Fred Cammack.
