VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
TO EXPRESS THE PROFOUND SORROW OF THE MEMBERS OF THE SOUTH CAROLINA SENATE UPON THE DEATH OF ROBERT C. CALDWELL, SR., OF WINNSBORO AND TO EXTEND THE DEEPEST SYMPATHY TO HIS FAMILY AND MANY FRIENDS.
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina Senate were deeply saddened to learn of the death of Robert C. Caldwell, Sr., of Winnsboro on November 23, 2014, at the venerable age of ninety-eight; and
Whereas, born the son of James S.H. and Willie McMeekin Caldwell in the Rossville section of Chester County, Robert C. Caldwell came into this world on June 17, 1916, when the twentieth century was still in its youth, and he was witness to nearly all the incredible changes and developments that have come to this nation from that time into the twenty-first century; and
Whereas, his career in the electric-utility sector began in 1938 with Bridges Construction Company. Working with Bridges, he helped build some of the very first lines for Berkeley Electric Cooperative and then spent two years in North Carolina constructing lines for cooperatives there. He retired from Fairfield Electric Cooperative after thirty-nine years of service, during which time he served as line superintendent; and
Whereas, in the community, he was a lifelong member of Ebenezer United Methodist Church, a Master Mason, and a member of the Winnsboro Lions Club; and
Whereas, while in North Carolina, he met and married Margaret Daniel of Mocksville. To this union were born four children, daughter Dale and sons Bobby, Johnny, and Danny, who gave their parents the joy of eight grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren; and
Whereas, his wife having predeceased him in 2001, Mr. Caldwell leaves to cherish his memory his children and grandchildren; a brother, Marion of Caldwell Crossroad; and numerous friends. He will be missed. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate:
That the members of the South Carolina Senate, by this resolution, express their profound sorrow upon the death of Robert C. Caldwell, Sr., of Winnsboro and extend the deepest sympathy to his family and many friends.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be provided to Bobby Caldwell for the family.
