Whereas, Corporal Thomas William Spears was born in Florence County on August 20, 1944, the son of Mrs. Idella Gregg Spears and Mr. Cornelius Spears, and died on July 9, 1992, in the line of duty while serving as a deputy sheriff with the Florence County Sheriff's Office; and
Whereas, he was a member of the St. Paul A.M.E. Church where he served in many capacities; and
