A SENATE RESOLUTION

TO EXPRESS THE PROFOUND SORROW OF THE MEMBERS OF THE SOUTH CAROLINA SENATE UPON THE DEATH OF MR. THOMAS BRITTON WHITE, JR. OF CAMDEN, TO RECOGNIZE HIS LIFE, AND TO EXTEND THE DEEPEST SYMPATHY TO HIS FAMILY AND MANY FRIENDS.

Whereas, the members of the Senate were deeply saddened to learn of the death of Mr. Thomas Britton White, Jr. at the age of ninety; and

Whereas, the oldest son of Thomas Britton and Mary Winonah McCoy White, Thomas Britton White, Jr. was born on August 4, 1924. He entered the world in Lee County, South Carolina during the post-Reconstruction agricultural depression and spent his early years on his family's farm; and

Whereas, Mr. White attended Clemson University in 1942, but cut his study short after he joined the military in February 1943. Mr. White served in Saipan and Iwo Jima during World War II; and

Whereas, in January 1946, he wed his 4-H camp sweetheart Isabel and settled in Columbia where he attended the University of South Carolina on the GI bill. Shortly thereafter, the couple welcomed three children; and

Whereas, Mr. White began working at DuPont in 1950 and stayed there until he retired as a senior design engineer in 1984. He spent his retirement enjoying farming, hunting, fishing, playing golf, bridge, and poker, and spending time with his grandchildren and friends; and

Whereas, Mr. White was a faithful member of Lyttleton Street United Methodist Church in Camden and the Wimberly Sunday School class for over sixty-five years; and

Whereas, while he served as chairman, president, or commander of most organizations he was a part of, Mr. White was most fulfilled by his dual service as chaplain of his Masonic Lodge and American Legion Post, where he led many of his comrades "home"; and

Whereas, Mr. White is survived by his wife of more than seventy years, Fay Isabel Smith White; daughter, Winonah Faye White Coan and son-in-law, Gilbert Fitzgerald Coan, Jr.; son Thomas Britton White, III and daughter-in-law Paige Randolph White; son Andrew David White and daughter-in-law Debra Stueber White; grandchildren Thomas Britton White, IV, Amelia Coan Templeton, James Lawrence Coan, Andrew Stueber White, Benjamin Lee White, Lucas Aaron White and five great-grandchildren. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the Senate:

That the members of the Senate, by this resolution, express profound sorrow upon the death of Mr. Thomas Britton White, Jr. of Camden, recognize his life, and extend deepest sympathy to his family and many friends.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the family of Mr. Thomas Britton White, Jr.
