A HOUSE RESOLUTION

TO EXPRESS THE PROFOUND SYMPATHY OF THE MEMBERS OF THE SOUTH CAROLINA HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES UPON THE PASSING OF TONY R. CARTER OF ANNAPOLIS, MARYLAND.

Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives were saddened to learn of the death of Tony R. Carter at the age of sixty-one on May 11, 2019; and

Whereas, born in Estill on September 22, 1957, he was the son of the late Rufus Carter and Alma Brown Carter; and

Whereas, having been raised in Fairfax, the young Tony received his early education in the public schools of Allendale County. As a teen, he drove a school bus for the local school district and actively assisted the elderly in his community. He also pursued his entrepreneurial spirit by working with his dad as a wood merchant; and

Whereas, in 1981, Mr. Carter earned his bachelor of arts from the University of South Carolina. After college, he moved to Washington, D.C. where he lived with his aunt and uncle, Sally and Eugene Bonds, and their children and was treated as one of their own. Tony often spoke fondly of the years that he spent with the family and the memories that had been made; and

Whereas, early in his career, Mr. Carter worked on Capitol Hill for Congressman George Crocket as a Legislative Staff Assistant. He later worked as a Senior Legislative Staff Assistant to South Carolina Congressman, Robin Tallon. Upon leaving Capitol Hill, he went to work for the U.S. Department of Energy where he held many positions and received numerous awards. At the time of his passing, he was working as a Senior Policy Advisor in the Office of Legacy Management; and

Whereas, Tony married the love of his life, Rodecia Kavan Harvey of Annapolis, Maryland in 2005 and they were blessed with two beautiful daughters, Joscelyn Alma and Madison Courtney. His family was the light of his life and he loved them unconditionally. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends and all who had the privilege of knowing 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 profound sympathy upon the passing of Tony R. Carter of Annapolis, Maryland.
