TO REQUEST THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE INTERSECTION LOCATED AT THE JUNCTURE OF SOUTH CAROLINA HIGHWAYS 76 AND 576 AT WAHEE ROAD IN MARION COUNTY "ROBERT J. MCINTYRE, SR. INTERSECTION" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THIS INTERSECTION THAT CONTAIN THE WORDS "ROBERT J. MCINTYRE, SR. INTERSECTION".
Whereas, Robert J. McIntyre, Sr. was born on May 10, 1918, at the McIntyre farm "Sunnyside" in the Wahee community of Marion County. Except for military service, Mr. McIntyre lived all of his life at the McIntyre family home in Wahee; and
Whereas, he was a farmer and Game Warden with the S.C. Department of Natural Resources (known as the S.C. Wildlife Resources Department at the time of his death in 1956); and
Whereas, he married Dorothy Lee Dozier on January 9, 1944, and they had four children: Robin McIntyre Moseley, Robert Joseph McIntyre, Jr., Betsy McIntyre Roberts, and Alexander Douglas McIntyre; and
Whereas, today his wife Dorothy and three of their four children still live on the McIntyre farm in Wahee; and
Whereas, Mr. McIntyre tragically drowned in the Little Pee Dee River during his work day as a Game Warden on September 17, 1956; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to remember this son of South Carolina by naming an intersection in Marion 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 intersection located at the juncture of South Carolina Highways 76 and 576 at Wahee Road in Marion County "Robert J. McIntyre, Sr. Intersection" and erect appropriate markers or signs at this intersection that contain the words "Robert J. McIntyre, Sr. Intersection".
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the family of Robert J. McIntyre, Sr.
