TO REQUEST THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME US 1 BETWEEN I-20 AND THE TOWN OF LEXINGTON IN LEXINGTON COUNTY "SCHP TROOPER FIRST CLASS ROBERT P. PERRY, JR. MEMORIAL HIGHWAY" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THIS LOCATION CONTAINING THE DESIGNATION.
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina General Assembly wish to honor the ultimate sacrifice of Trooper First Class Robert Paul Perry, Jr., who was killed in the line of duty on April 15, 1987; and
Whereas, a native of Lancaster County, Robert Perry, Jr. was born on September 7, 1960. He was an alumnus of Southern Methodist College; and
Whereas, Trooper First Class Perry was a four-year veteran of the South Carolina Highway Patrol. On April 15, 1987, he was pursuing a motorcycle on Muddy Creek Road in Williamsburg County when the pursuit entered an area of Muddy Creek Road and Snow Lake Road, which was unpaved. Trooper First Class Perry lost control of his patrol car, striking a small bridge and a tree. He died from injuries sustained in the crash; and
Whereas, Trooper First Class Perry was survived by his widow, Tamara Sowell Perry; two sons, Paul and Jason; sister, Lea; and mother, the late Ruth Wilkerson Perry. He is buried at Lancaster Memorial Park; and
Whereas, it would be only fitting and proper to pay tribute to this son of South Carolina by naming a portion of road in the State 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 that the Department of Transportation name US 1 between I-20 and the Town of Lexington in Lexington County "SCHP Trooper First Class Robert P.
