To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (S. 783) to request the Department of Transportation name the portion of United States Highway 76 in Marion County from its intersection with Brockington Road to South Cypress Street "William 'Penn' Troy Highway, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:
DENNIS C. MOSS for Committee.
TO REQUEST THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE PORTION OF UNITED STATES HIGHWAY 76 IN MARION COUNTY FROM ITS INTERSECTION WITH BROCKINGTON ROAD TO SOUTH CYPRESS STREET "WILLIAM 'PENN' TROY HIGHWAY" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS ALONG THIS PORTION OF HIGHWAY CONTAINING THESE WORDS.
Whereas, the Honorable William "Penn" Troy was born on May 22, 1944, in Wilmington, North Carolina, the son of the late Milton and Eloise Troy. He departed this life on August 15, 2020; and
Whereas, a 1963 graduate of Palmetto High School in Mullins, he went on to earn a degree and license in embalming and funeral directing service from Gupton-Jones Mortuary College in Atlanta, Georgia. He holds funeral director licenses in both South Carolina and North Carolina; and
Whereas, Mr. Troy would return to South Carolina to establish Troy's Funeral Home which became a thriving operation where service to the community is paramount; and
Whereas, in 1988, he opened Legette-Troy's Funeral Home in Loris which also provides the utmost service to the public; and
Whereas, he received numerous honors which included serving multiple terms as president, secretary, and treasurer for the South Carolina Board of Funeral Service; and
Whereas, Mr. Troy served his community in multiple capacities, including four terms on the Marion County Council, as a member of the Mullins School Board, and treasurer and trustee of Mount Olive Baptist Church; and
Whereas, he and his wife, Vivian Wilson Troy, raised three remarkable sons who blessed them with four grandchildren; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to recognize the many accomplishments of this son of South Carolina by having a road named in his honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That members of the General Assembly, by this resolution, request the Department of Transportation name the portion of United States Highway 76 in Marion County from its intersection with Brockington Road to South Cypress Street William 'Penn' Troy Highway" 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.
