TO EXPRESS THE DEEPEST SYMPATHY AND SORROW OF THE MEMBERS OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY TO THE FAMILY AND MANY FRIENDS OF THE HONORABLE JAMES M. ARTHUR, SR. OF UNION COUNTY, A PROMINENT CIVIC LEADER AND FORMER LEGISLATOR, UPON HIS DEATH.
Whereas, the members of the General Assembly were saddened to learn of the death of James M. Arthur, Sr., of Union, on Sunday, January 21, 1996, at the age of seventy eight; and
Whereas, he was a native of Union and a devoted husband and family man to his wife, four children and many grandchildren; and
Whereas, he was a graduate of Wofford College and the University of South Carolina School of Law; and
Whereas, he gave selfless and distinguished service to the citizens of Union County and the State of South Carolina in the House of Representatives from 1954 to 1964 and from 1972 to 1988; and
Whereas, he was known, admired and revered as a man of unshakable character and unquestioned integrity; and
Whereas, he gallantly served his country in the U.S. Navy during World War II with twenty three months service aboard the U.S.S. McNair as a radarman in the Pacific Theatre of Operations; and
Whereas, he served his community as a member of Masonic Lodge 75, Union; as a Shriner, as a member of the Sertoma Club, the American Legion, the Veterans of Foreign Wars and was a member of Bethel United Methodist Church; and
Whereas, his death represents a tremendous loss to the citizens of Union County, and in truth, the State of South Carolina; and
Whereas, the General Assembly wants the members of his family and many friends to know they are in our utmost thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina, by this resolution, express profound sorrow at the death of the Honorable James M. Arthur, Sr., of Union, and extends the deepest sympathy to the members of his family and many friends.
