A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

TO REQUEST THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE BRIDGE LOCATED ON HIGHWAY 1 APPROXIMATELY FOUR MILES OUTSIDE THE TOWN OF MCBEE "SERGEANT DARRYL QUICK MEMORIAL BRIDGE" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THIS LOCATION CONTAINING THIS DESIGNATION.

Whereas, the members of the South Carolina General Assembly were deeply saddened to learn of the tragic death of Sergeant Darryl Quick on July 23, 2008, and wish to honor and remember this wonderful husband, father, friend, and deputy; and

Whereas, a native of Brooklyn, New York, Sergeant Quick was born on December 12, 1965; and

Whereas, a veteran of the United States Army, he served for six years until he was honorably discharged; and

Whereas, Sergeant Quick began his career as a correctional officer at Evans Correctional Center in Bennettsville, where he served for three years. He later transferred to Morrison Correctional Institute in North Carolina, where he served for five years; and

Whereas, Sergeant Quick also served as a police officer with the Chesterfield Police Department followed by a stint as deputy sheriff with the Chesterfield County Sheriff's Office; and

Whereas, a devout Christian, Sergeant Quick was a member of the Outreach for Christ Missionary Baptist Church in the Cash community where he served as a deacon and president of the Usher Board; and

Whereas, an active leader in his community, he was a loyal member of the Davis Temple Lodge #481. Sergeant Quick distinguished himself as Past Master of Davis Temple Lodge #481, High Priest for Emmanuel Chapter #13 H.R.A.M., Commander-in-Chief at Booker T. Washington Consistory #225, Generalissimo-Willie Brown Commandery #15, Oriental Guide-Al Bahr Temple #178, Grand Inspector General 330, and last degree, United Supreme Council, A.A.S.R. Southern Jurisdiction; and

Whereas, Sergeant Quick is survived by his wife, Michelle Quick, three sons, D. J. Quick, Kevin Jefferson, and Darrell Wright-Quick, one daughter, Brittany Quick, and many friends and colleagues; and

Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to pay tribute to the life and service of this son of South Carolina by naming the bridge on which he tragically lost his life in his honor. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:

That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly, by this resolution, request the Department of Transportation name the bridge located on Highway 1 approximately four miles outside of the Town of McBee "Sergeant Darryl Quick Memorial Bridge" and erect appropriate markers or signs at this location containing this designation.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation and the family of Sergeant Darryl Quick.
