TO EXPRESS THE PROFOUND SORROW OF THE MEMBERS OF THE SOUTH CAROLINA HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES UPON THE PASSING OF JAMES HOLIDAY OF LEE COUNTY, AND TO EXTEND THEIR DEEPEST SYMPATHY TO HIS LARGE AND LOVING FAMILY AND HIS MANY FRIENDS.
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives were saddened to learn of the death of James "Jim" Holiday at Springdale Healthcare Center at the age of one hundred on December 27, 2011; and
Whereas, born in Lee County in the year 1911, he was the son of the late Gene Holiday and Sarah Alston Holiday; and
Whereas, he was married to his beloved wife, the late Alma Lee Williams Holiday, for fifty-nine years, and together they reared a large family; and
Whereas, of those, three sons and four daughters are left to recall the love of their parents: Thomas Holiday, James Holiday, Alphonzo Council, Delores Holiday, Celestine Holiday, Vivian Bennett, and Terri Carter, who blessed their parents with sixteen grandchildren and five great-grandchildren; and
Whereas, he was employed on various farms in Lee County for many years and by Daniel Construction, and his last employment was as a gardener with C. P. Dubose; and
Whereas, a faithful member of Pine Grove African Methodist Episcopal Church for over ninety years, he used the talents with which God had blessed him to build the kingdom of God, serving as a steward, a member of the senior choir, a class leader, and trustee, but most of all as a dedicated witness for God; and
Whereas, until his health failed, he was a proud member of Corinthian Lodge #200, Free & Accepted Ancient York Masons; and
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives are grateful for the legacy of James Holiday and for the example of devotion and kindness he set for all who knew him. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, express their profound sorrow upon the passing of James Holiday of Lee County, and extend their deepest sympathy to his large and loving family and his many friends.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be provided to the family of James Holiday.
