A HOUSE RESOLUTION

TO EXPRESS THE PROFOUND SORROW OF THE MEMBERS OF THE SOUTH CAROLINA HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES UPON THE PASSING OF KEVON MARTELL "KEKE" BELTON OF FAIRFIELD COUNTY AND TO EXTEND THEIR DEEPEST SYMPATHY TO HIS LARGE AND LOVING FAMILY AND HIS MANY FRIENDS.

Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives were saddened to learn of the death of Kevon Martell "KeKe" Belton at the age of twenty-eight on December 2, 2018; and

Whereas, born on October 18, 1990, KeKe was the son of Barry J. Belton and Dorothy M. Boyd-Belton and was reared in the Greenbrier Community; and

Whereas, he was educated in the Fairfield County School District and graduated from Fairfield Central High School, and he earned certification in Automotive Engineering from Universal Technical Institute (UTI) in Mooresville, North Carolina; and

Whereas, employed as an operator at Carolina Technical Fabric, Mr. Belton was a "die-hard" fan of the Dallas Cowboys, and he often invited family and friends to join him and his father and brother, Brandon, to their home on game days; and

Whereas, living by his motto, "I must love, help, and give because God has given me," Mr. Belton made an impact on everyone who knew him; and

Whereas, he cherished his deep relationship with his parents and brother, Brandon, spending the last hours of his life with them, freely discussing his faith in God and His meaningful promises; and

Whereas, Mr. Belton willingly served as a father figure to the three children of his very special friend, Cagney M. Culbreth: Kateland, Calisa, and Kentrell Young. He included them in all the gatherings of the Boyd-Belton family, such as church, football games, pageants, and family cookouts; and

Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives are grateful for the life of KeKe Belton, the memories he left, and the example of warmth and tenderness he set for all who knew him. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:

That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, express their profound sorrow upon the passing of Kevon Martell "KeKe" Belton of Fairfield County and extend their deepest sympathy to his large and loving family and his many friends.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to the family of Kevon Martell "KeKe" Belton.
