TO EXTEND THE DEEPEST SYMPATHY OF THE MEMBERS OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY TO THE FAMILY AND FRIENDS OF ONE OF SUMTER COUNTY'S BEST KNOWN, MOST WELL-RESPECTED, AND CAPABLE LARGE ANIMAL VETERINARIANS, DOCTOR ROBERT WESLEY BEATY, JR., WHO PASSED AWAY ON MONDAY, MARCH 15, 1999.
Whereas, on March 15, 1999, Sumter County and the State of South Carolina lost one of its most able and hard-working large animal veterinarians, Dr. Robert Wesley Beaty, Jr.; and
Whereas, Dr. Beaty was born in 1921 in Sumter, the son of the late Robert Wesley Beaty and the late Nell Hunter Beaty; and
Whereas, after graduating with a premedicine degree from Clemson University and attaining a degree in veterinary medicine from Auburn University, he proudly served his country during World War II as a captain in the Army Air Corps, and
Whereas, Dr. Beaty was married to his sweetheart, the former Alice Brown, and together they had three sons, Robert Hunter, Paul Wesley, and Lee Sloan Beaty, all of Sumter, and six grandchildren; and
Whereas, Dr. Beaty's siblings include a brother, James Sloan Beaty of Bluffton and a sister, Betty Beaty Hackett of Columbia; and
Whereas, he was a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Sumter; and
Whereas, Dr. Beaty's love of his profession, which he practiced for fifty-two years, is legendary in Sumter; and
Whereas, he was always on call and no frantic call to him in the middle of the night about an injured horse or a sick cow ever went unanswered; and
Whereas, his lifelong customers, of whom there were many, remember him as a man who was always available and rarely took payment for his services; and
Whereas, Dr. Beaty's family fondly remembers an effective home remedy the doctor concocted on the kitchen stove called "wolf's healing oil" which actually healed serious wounds on horses; and
Whereas, he was an institution in the livestock industry and, especially for the livestock farmers and the youngsters in 4-H clubs, he was probably the most well-respected person in the Sumter area; and
Whereas, Dr. Beaty's family names as his dearest passions the practice of veterinary medicine, woodworking, farming, and his family; and
Whereas, the community will sorely miss Dr. Beaty whose attitude of enjoying hard work, having a positive outlook on life, and never complaining made an impact on everyone he met; and
Whereas, it is fitting and proper that the members of the General Assembly pause in their deliberations to note the passing of so great a son of South Carolina. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly extend their deepest sympathies to the family and friends of one of Sumter County's best known, most well-respected, and capable large animal veterinarians, Doctor Robert Wesley Beaty, Jr., who passed away on Monday, March 15, 1999.
