Whereas, the Honorable J. Metz Looper was born on January 20, 1938, in Travelers Rest, the son of J. Roy and Alice Corene Kelley Looper; and
Whereas, he is married to Kay H. Looper, and together they are the proud parents of four children, have ten grandchildren, and one great grandchild; and
Whereas, he is a graduate of the University of Tennessee; and
Whereas, Mr. Looper served his country with honor and distinction as a member of the United States Army; and
Whereas, he served as a Summary Court Judge from 1992 to 2001; and
Whereas, he is a member of the executive board and is owner of Beach Cove Resort in Myrtle Beach; and
Whereas, it is fitting and proper to recognize the many accomplishments of this son of South Carolina by naming a portion of United States Highway 25 in Greenville County in his honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly request that the Department of Transportation name the portion of United States Highway 25 in Greenville County from its intersection with Bowers Road to its intersection with South Carolina Highway 414 "J.
