VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
TO REQUEST THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME A ROAD IN BEAUFORT COUNTY "EDGAR WILLIAMS HIGHWAY" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THIS LOCATION CONTAINING THIS DESIGNATION.
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina Senate were deeply saddened to learn of the death of Edgar Williams on August 12, 2018; and
Whereas, Edgar Williams was born on December 9, 1942 and was reared in a Christian home. He never forgot his humble beginnings; and
Whereas, an active member of his community throughout his life, Edgar served as Commander of the American Legion Post 207, Vice Chair for the MLK Committee, Vice Chair for the Democratic Party, member of the Black Chamber of Commerce, President of the Robert Smalls Association, member of National Active Retired Federal Employees, and member of the Beaufort County Zoning Board; and
Whereas, a man of faith, Edgar was a devout member of Second Celestial Baptist Church in Dale, South Carolina; and
Whereas, Edgar was preceded in death by his parents and by five brothers, Esaw, Henry, James, Grant, and Ralph; and
Whereas, he leaves to cherish his memory his loving wife, Ora; one daughter, Krystal Williams; three sons, Patrick (Tamara) Williams, Arron Williams, and Michael Conliffe; three grandsons, Patrick Williams, Jabari Haggins, and Justin Williams; one granddaughter, Mia Conliffe; two sisters, Elizabeth (Robert) Hardy and Ida (Theodore) Clark; two brothers, Walter (Ursular) Young and Rufus (Emily) Williams; one uncle, Deacon Charlie (Lucille) Williams; two brothers-in-law, Doug (Karen) Adams and Erwin (Diane) Adams; four sisters-in-law, Michelle Adams, Carol Adams, Kathy Barnette, and Marsha Carter; one adopted nephew, Jason Givens; and a host of nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends. He will be missed; and
Whereas, it would only be fitting and proper to pay tribute to the life and accomplishments of this son of South Carolina by naming a road in Beaufort County in his honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly, by this resolution, request that the Department of Transportation name a road in Beaufort County "Captain Jerome Jones Highway" and erect appropriate markers or signs at this location containing this designation.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
