To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (S. 682) to request the Department of Transportation name the bridge on U.S. Highway 76 over Jefferies Creek "John 'Jack' Moulton Robinson, Jr. Bridge" and to erect, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:
JIMMY C. BALES for Committee.
TO REQUEST THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE BRIDGE ON U.S. HIGHWAY 76 OVER JEFFERIES CREEK "JOHN 'JACK' MOULTON ROBINSON, JR. BRIDGE" AND TO ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THIS LOCATION CONTAINING THE DESIGNATION.
Whereas, John "Jack" Moulton Robinson, Jr. was born in Florence, a son of John M. and Mary F. Robinson. He graduated from Florence High School in 1939 and The Citadel in 1943; and
Whereas, Robinson served in World War II as 2nd Lieutenant with the 97th Division Combat Engineers Battalion of the 3rd Army. He was captured as a prisoner of war in Germany while on a bridge reconnaissance mission and later escaped from a prison camp in Czechoslovakia. He also served in the Korean War; and
Whereas, a resident bridge engineer with the Florence County Highway Department, Robinson oversaw the construction of most of the bridges in the Pee Dee area, including the I-95 and I-20 overpasses, from the 1960s until his retirement in 1993; and
Whereas, Robinson married Leatrice J. Robinson and had a daughter, Mrs. Gerald R. (Mary Lea) Stone, and two sons, John M. Robinson III and James L. Robinson; and
Whereas, Robinson was a lifelong member of St. Anthony Catholic Church and served as head usher; and
Whereas, Robinson passed away in 1995 at the age of seventy-two. He leaves a lasting legacy in the bridges of the Pee Dee area; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to pay tribute to the accomplishments and public service of this son of South Carolina by naming the bridge over Jefferies Creek in his honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly, by this resolution, request the Department of Transportation name the bridge on U.S. Highway 76 over Jefferies Creek "John 'Jack' Moulton Robinson, Jr. Bridge" and erect appropriate markers or signs at this location containing the designation.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
