A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

TO REQUEST THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE PORTION OF GRANT ROAD IN FLORENCE COUNTY FROM ITS INTERSECTION WITH EAST SEVEN MILE ROAD TO ITS INTERSECTION WITH BASSWOOD ROAD "JUDGE TAFT GUILE, JR. ROAD" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS ALONG THIS PORTION OF HIGHWAY CONTAINING THESE WORDS.

Whereas, the Honorable Taft Guile, Jr., was born on August 13, 1951, and departed this life on January 22, 2021; and

Whereas, Judge Guile spent a lifetime employed in law enforcement and the judicial system, honorably serving the citizens of Florence County and the State of South Carolina - a career that spanned more than forty-seven years; and

Whereas, in 1974, he became a law enforcement officer with the Florence Police Department. In 1983, he began a career with the Florence Sheriff's Office where he served until 2000; and

Whereas, in 2000, he was appointed a magistrate for Florence County; and

Whereas, in 2009, Judge Guile was appointed municipal court judge for the City of Florence, a position he held until his untimely death; and

Whereas, he served in his various capacities with dignity, integrity, dedication, and with Christian humility; and

Whereas, throughout his career, Judge Guile made tireless contributions to the City of Florence's safety and growth by promoting equity and justice among its citizens; and

Whereas, he leaves to cherish his memory his devoted wife Cynthia Legette Guile and a host of other relatives and friends; and

Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to recognize the good works of Judge Taft Guile, Jr., by naming a portion of highway in Florence 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 the Department of Transportation name the portion of Grant Road in Florence County from its intersection with East Seven Mile Road to its intersection with Basswood Road "Judge Taft Guile, Jr. Road" and erect appropriate markers or signs along this portion of highway containing these words.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
