10
11   TO EXPRESS THE PROFOUND SYMPATHY OF THE
12   GENERAL ASSEMBLY UPON THE DEATH OF GRADY L.
13   PATTERSON, JR., TO HONOR HIS LONG HISTORY OF
14   SERVICE AND DEDICATION TO THE STATE OF SOUTH
15   CAROLINA AND TO THE COUNTRY, AND TO REMEMBER

20   Whereas, Grady L. Patterson, Jr. was born in Calhoun Falls in
21   Abbeville County on January 13, 1924. He attended Clemson
22   University and received his undergraduate and law degrees from
23   the University of South Carolina. For eight years he served as an
24   Assistant Attorney General before being elected to the office of
25   State Treasurer in 1966; and
26
27   Whereas, Mr. Patterson held this esteemed position until 1994 and
28   then was reelected to the post again in 1998, serving for more than
29   thirty-five years as State Treasurer. During this service, he was a
30   staunch steward of fiscal responsibility and advocated for many
31   constitutional and legislative protections which included the
32   establishment of a reserve fund to cover budget shortfalls, an
33   annual debt limit, and a requirement that pension funds be used
34   only for retirement purposes; and
35
36   Whereas, he not only faithfully served his beloved State, but was a
37   true patriot to this great nation as well. Grady Patterson was a
38   fighter pilot in World War II, flying combat missions from Iwo
39   Jima in the Pacific. He served in the Air Force during both the
40   Korean War and the Berlin crisis. He served as Chief of the South
41   Carolina Air National Guard and was active in the Guard for forty
42   years, ultimately earning the rank of Lieutenant General; and

 2   Whereas, Mr. Patterson was a dedicated servant of the Lord, a
 3   steadfast witness of the Christian faith, who served as a shining
 4   example to friends and family alike; and
 5
 6   Whereas, the members of the General Assembly were greatly
 7   saddened to learn of the death of this truly beloved South Carolina
 8   son on December 7, 2009, but take comfort in the knowledge that
 9   his legacy lives on not only through his service but through the
10   loved ones he leaves to carry on his belief that “character counts.”
11   He is survived by the love of his life and wife of fifty-seven years,
12   Marjorie, six children, and thirteen grandchildren. Now, therefore,
13
14   Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate
15   concurring:
16
17   That the members of the General Assembly, by this resolution,
18   express their profound sympathy upon the death of Grady L.
19   Patterson, Jr., honor his long history of service and dedication to
20   the State of South Carolina and to the country, and remember and
21   appreciate his work as the State Treasurer of South Carolina and
22   the legacy he leaves behind for all South Carolinians.
23
24   Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to
25   Mrs. Grady L. Patterson, Jr.
