TO EXPRESS THE DEEPEST SYMPATHY OF THE MEMBERS OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY TO THE FAMILY OF OUR FRIEND AND COLLEAGUE, THE HONORABLE WALTER P. LLOYD, A MEMBER OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES FROM DISTRICT 121, UPON HIS DEATH.
Whereas, the members of the General Assembly were deeply saddened to learn that our friend and colleague, the Honorable Walter P. Lloyd of Walterboro died at his home on Thursday night, April 14, 2005, after a fairly lengthy illness; and
Whereas, he was born in Eastover, South Carolina, was a resident of Walterboro, a graduate of South Carolina State University where he earned a B.S.A. Degree in 1957, and a Masters of Education Degree in Education in 1963; and
Whereas, he was a retired agricultural education consultant for the state Department of Education and had served in the House of Representatives since 1995. He represented House District 121 consisting of areas in Colleton and Beaufort Counties; and
Whereas, he was one of the most personable members of the House of Representatives whose top legislative priority was to fully fund our public schools; and
Whereas, as a member of the House Education and Public Works Committee, he spent a great deal of time and energy on issues dealing with children and education in South Carolina because he loved school children, and he knew the importance of a good education; and
Whereas, he was an active participant in the affairs of his home community and district, and he was always accessible to his constituents whatever their problem or need; and
Whereas, he was a devoted husband to his wife, Yvonne, and to his two children, and with the death of this truly fine man at the age of seventy-three, the people of Colleton and Beaufort Counties and the State of South Carolina have lost a warm and capable public servant and good friend who will be deeply missed; and
Whereas, the members of the General Assembly, by this resolution, would like to extend their heartfelt condolences to his wife, children, family, and many friends upon his death. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly express their deepest sympathy to the family of our friend and colleague, the Honorable Walter P. Lloyd, a member of the House of Representatives from District 121, upon his death.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to his widow.
