Whereas, it is altogether fitting and proper that the members of the House of Representatives of the State of South Carolina should pause in their deliberations to express their gratitude to Lieutenant Raymond "Ray" Dixon for his significant contributions to protecting citizens in the Palmetto State with the Fort Mill Police Department; and
Whereas, born in Augusta, Georgia, he moved with his parents, Carol and Gary Dixon, to Charlotte, North Carolina, where he lived for some ten years, before moving to Fort Mill; and
Whereas, Ray Dixon graduated from Fort Mill High School and joined the Fort Mill Police Department twenty years ago; and
Whereas, as part of his duties, he prepared monthly newsletters for most of the neighborhoods in the City of Fort Mill to keep citizens apprised of safety issues that concern their neighborhood; and
Whereas, dedicated to the welfare of his community and the health and safety of the environment, Lieutenant Dixon organized the Fort Mill Police Department Medicine Drop, the City Shred Day, and a food drive for the Care Center; and
Whereas, he introduced the City of Fort Mill to the "Do the Right Thing" program and implemented the "Pace Car" program and "Vial of Life" for the elderly; and
Whereas, for his outstanding contributions to the Fort Mill Police Department, Lieutenant Dixon was recognized several times as Officer of the Year, and he was named the "Hometown Hero" in 2015; and
Whereas, together with his beloved wife, Stephanie Dixon, he reared a fine daughter, Savannah Tritt, and he plans to spend many happy hours of retirement working on his wife's always incomplete "honey-do list"; and
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives are grateful for the years of unparalleled dedication that Lieutenant Ray Dixon has devoted to law enforcement and wish him many years of enjoyment as he begins his well-earned retirement. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the House of Representatives of the State of South Carolina, by this resolution, recognize and honor Lieutenant Raymond Dixon of the Fort Mill Police Department, upon the occasion of his retirement after twenty years of exemplary service in law enforcement, and wish him continued success and happiness in all his future endeavors.
