10
11   EXPRESSING THE DEEPEST SORROW OF THE GENERAL

22
23   Whereas, Mayor Cheatham adopted the City of Orangeburg as his
24   home in 1966 when he moved there to manage the local Southern
25   Bell office; and
26
27   Whereas, he quickly became an instantly recognizable smiling
28   ambassador for his new community, involving himself in every
29   area of the city’s diverse activities; and
30
31   Whereas, just a sampling of the highlights of his efforts as a father,
32   businessman, and public servant include loving father to sons Sam,
33   Mike, and Deck, and daughter Harris Murray; devoted husband to
34   wife and business partner, Faye; president of the United Way in
35   1973 and United Way Volunteer of the Year 1974; past president
36   of the Orangeburg County Chamber of Commerce and chairman of
37   the YMCA Steering Committee to establish a facility in
38   Orangeburg; president of Kiwanis Club, during which time he
39   established a new Key Club and later formed the Kiwanis Junior
40   Golf Tournament, and founded the Richard G. Osborne Memorial

42   Methodist Church, where he served as a past chairman, Sunday

 4   golf coach, promoting junior golf and establishing the Mayor’s
 5   Cup tournament; and owner of Cheatham and Roe Real Estate with
 6   his partner and wife, Faye Roe; and
 7
 8   Whereas, Martin Cheatham has served since being elected Mayor
 9   of the City of Orangeburg in 1989, a tenure that left the City with a
10   legacy of ethnic pride in the restoration of an historically
11   significant black cemetery, cultural awareness with the renovation
12   of the Stevenson Auditorium, recreational opportunity through the
13   establishment of the YMCA, and natural beauty in the continuous
14   upgrading and expansion of the Edisto Memorial Gardens; and
15
16   Whereas, Martin Cheatham unfailingly greeted his friends and
17   strangers, both, with a genuine smile and a friendly handshake, or
18   even a hug; and
19
20   Whereas, he loved his townspeople as much as they loved him.
21   Now, therefore,
22
23   Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate
24   concurring:
25
26   That the members of the General Assembly express their deepest
27   sorrow at the death of Orangeburg Mayor, the Honorable Martin
28   Cheatham, and join the citizens of the City of Orangeburg and the
29   State in gratefully remembering and honoring his expansive public
30   service.
31
32   Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to
33   his wife, Mrs. Faye Roe Cheatham.
