TO CELEBRATE THE LIFE OF MR. LOUIE HICKLON MOORE WHO DEPARTED THIS WORLD TO JOIN GOD ON MAY 5, 2018, AND TO OFFER THE SINCEREST CONDOLENCES TO HIS LOVING FAMILY AND FRIENDS.

Whereas, Deacon Louie Hicklon Moore and his wife the late Deaconess Mattie Able Moore served as devout Christians who loved the Lord. He attended St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church for over sixty years. During this period of time, he served as trustee, choir leader, helped maintain the appearance of the church, and worked alongside dedicated men from the church to brick in the sanctuary; and

Whereas, Deacon Moore received his education from Fairfield County Training School, Camp Liberty, and studied electrical engineering at Friendship College; and

Whereas, during World War II, he served as an Army Air Corps Technician with Company B 1909th Engineer Aviation Battalion, the same company as the famous Tuskegee Airmen "Red Tails"; and

Whereas, after receiving and Honorable Discharge on May 15, 1946, he returned to Winnsboro, South Carolina, and worked as a farmer. Eventually, he pursued and gained employment with the Fairfield Highway Department, the Fairfield Rock Quarry in Rion, and Fairfield Electric Cooperative. He was the first African-American linesman to be employed with the Rural Electric Cooperatives of Fairfield County and retired from the company after thirty years of service; and

Whereas, as a member of the Prince Hall Masonic Temple, he served diligently until his health prevented him from continuing. Mr. Moore was considered a jack of all trades, capable of accomplishing anything; and

Whereas, he served as a Godly role model for his children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and other admiring youth from the neighborhood and church, acting as a paragon of Christianity; and

Whereas, Deacon Moore and his wife were blessed with eight children, thirty-three grandchildren, thirty great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild to bless his life with laughter and love; and

Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives are grateful for the legacy he left behind and hope that the happy memories remaining with his loved ones will aid in bringing them comfort. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:

That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, celebrate the life of Deacon. Louie Hicklon Moore who departed this world to join God on May 5, 2018, and offer the sincerest condolences to his loving family and friends.
