Amend Title To Conform
Whereas, Mr. John David Trout was born on May 26, 1938, in Sandy Mush, North Carolina, and departed this life on February 7, 2016. He was the son of Oliver Orlando Trout and Golden Walker Trout; and
Whereas, he was a graduate of Chapman High School in Inman and proudly served his country as a member of the United States Navy; and
Whereas, Mr. Trout was the devoted husband to his lifelong partner and best friend DeAnna Strickland Trout. Together they proudly raised two fine children who blessed them with three adorable grandchildren; and
Whereas, he was a successful businessman who was the retired founder and co-owner of D's Jewelers; and
Whereas, Mr. Trout was a member of Moncks Corner United Methodist Church where he formerly served as a member of the board and the finance committee; and
Whereas, he was one of the original founders of the Berkeley County Republican Party, former vice chairman of the Berkeley County Election Commission, and a lifelong member of the Moncks Corner Rotary Club; and
Whereas, Mr. Trout was a past president and board member of the South Carolina Jewelers Association, a longtime member of the Charleston Southern University Board of Visitors, and a former board member of Santee Cooper; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to pay tribute to the accomplishments and public service of this outstanding citizen of Berkeley County and the State of South Carolina by naming an intersection in his beloved Town of Moncks Corner in his honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That members of the General Assembly request the Department of Transportation name the Main Street Extension, from Rembert C. Dennis Boulevard to U.S. Highway 52 in Moncks Corner, and S.C. Highway 6, from U.S. Highway 52 to Ranger Drive in Cross, the "John Trout Memorial Highway" and erect appropriate markers or signs along this highway containing this designation.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
