TO EXPRESS THE PROFOUND SORROW OF THE MEMBERS OF THE SOUTH CAROLINA SENATE UPON THE DEATH OF RICHARD B. SCONYERS OF HEPHZIBAH, GEORGIA, AND TO EXTEND THEIR HEARTFELT SYMPATHY TO HIS FAMILY AND MANY, MANY FRIENDS.
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina Senate were deeply sadden to learn of the death of Richard B. Sconyers, age seventy, who passed away Friday, February 2, 2001; and
Whereas, Mr. Sconyers, a native of Dublin, Georgia, served with distinction in the United States Army and was a veteran of the Korean War; and
Whereas, he was Vice President of Sconyers Bar-B-Que and was a keen businessman and entrepreneur; and
Whereas, he and his taste tempting, mouthwatering, unforgettable barbecue were known and loved far and wide; Sconyers Bar-B-Que was an institution not only in the local community but throughout South Carolina and Georgia as well as the Southeast; and
Whereas, he was not only a purveyor of fabulous food but he also served his customers and guests a special brand of friendship that endured far beyond the last bite of barbecue and endeared him to all who knew him; and
Whereas, as President of the Richmond County Game and Fish Conservation Club, Mr. Sconyers was a devotee of the outdoors; he knew the camaraderie of being a hunter and a fisherman and enjoyed the relaxation of the quiet and solitude of nature; he was a dedicated protector and steward of our natural resources; and
Whereas, he was a member of the American Legion and the "Hen Peck" Club and was also a member of the Methodist Church; and
Whereas, he is survived by his beloved wife Ollie T. Sconyers, a brother, Larry E. Sconyers, and two sisters Clara Bow S. Nichols and Martha F. Sanders; and
Whereas, Mr. Sconyers will be deeply missed by his family, his many friends, and his community of colleagues and customers, and he will forever be remembered for his love of life and of his fellow man.
Whereas, it is fitting and proper that the members of the South Carolina Senate pause in their deliberations to recognize the passing of a great man and a true friend to South Carolina. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate:
That, by this resolution, the members of the Senate of South Carolina express their profound sorrow upon the death of Richard B. Sconyers and extend their heartfelt sympathy to his family and many, many friends.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to Mrs. Ollie T. Sconyers.
