Charles Lemon was a stonemason who later moved his family to Los Angeles where he worked as a railroad conductor.[2][3] Le Moyne was a favorite of actor/director Harry Carey, who once said that if Le Moyne was ever not available to play the heavy in one of his films, he would rather postpone production until the actor became free.[4] Le Moyne died in Hollywood, California on September 13, 1956, and was survived by two daughters and a son.[5]
