S. Printed 5/7/14--H. [SEC 5/8/14 12:51 PM]
Read the first time April 30, 2014.
To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (S. 1191) to request that the Department of Transportation name the intersection located at the juncture of United States Highway 15 and United States Highway 301, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:
LISTON D. BARFIELD for Committee.
TO REQUEST THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE INTERSECTION LOCATED AT THE JUNCTURE OF UNITED STATES HIGHWAY 15 AND UNITED STATES HIGHWAY 301 IN ORANGEBURG COUNTY "SCHP PATROLMAN HARRY B. RAY MEMORIAL INTERSECTION" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THIS INTERSECTION THAT CONTAIN THE WORDS "SCHP PATROLMAN HARRY B. RAY MEMORIAL INTERSECTION".
Whereas, on September 7, 1958, Patrolman Harry B. Ray was on duty in Orangeburg County near the Town of Santee when he pulled over a vehicle for speeding; and
Whereas, Patrolman Ray was unaware that the occupants of the vehicle had committed an armed robbery and were fleeing the scene of the crime when they were stopped. The suspects shot Patrolman Ray eight times and he tragically lost his life; and
Whereas, two of the assailants were sentenced to death and executed for this crime, while a third assailant served a ten-year prison sentence; and
Whereas, Patrolman Ray was a native of Spartanburg County, an eleven-year veteran of the patrol, and a United States Navy Veteran; and
Whereas, he is survived by his wife, JoAnn M. Duncan, and three children: Bonita E. Lee, Harry B. Ray Jr., and Jodi V. Ray; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to memorialize Patrolman Harry B. Ray by naming a highway intersection 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 intersection located at the juncture of United States Highway 15 and United States Highway 301 in Orangeburg County "SCHP Patrolman Harry B. Ray Memorial Intersection" and erect appropriate markers or signs at this intersection that contain the words "SCHP Patrolman Harry B. Ray Memorial Intersection".
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
