TO REQUEST THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE INTERSECTION LOCATED AT THE JUNCTION OF SOUTH CAROLINA HIGHWAY 129 AND VAUGHT ROAD IN HORRY COUNTY "LONNIE HOYT MARTIN INTERSECTION" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THIS INTERSECTION CONTAINING THIS DESIGNATION.
Whereas, Mr. Lonnie Hoyt Martin was born in the Town of Aynor on July 6, 1917, and died on November 2, 2003; and
Whereas, he was the son of Morgan and Mattie Bell Martin; and
Whereas, the Martin family members were long-time members of the Aynor community who actively were engaged primarily in growing tobacco; and
Whereas, at the age of thirteen, Lonnie dropped out of school to help provide for the family after his mother's untimely death; and
Whereas, in 1941, Lonnie married Edna Johnson, also from the Aynor community. For sixty-three years they lived on South Carolina Highway 129. Together they raised one son and were blessed with three grandchildren and two great grandchildren; and
Whereas, as a lifelong faithful member of Aynor Methodist Church and a farmer, Lonnie set an example to his family and all who knew him of how having a life founded on faith, family, and hard work are the keys to a successful life; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to honor the legacy of this son of South Carolina by having an intersection in the Aynor community named 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 intersection located at the junction of South Carolina Highway 129 and Vaught Road in Horry County "Lonnie Hoyt Martin Intersection" and erect appropriate markers or signs at this intersection containing this designation.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
