NICHOLS | Charlie Gilbert Enzor, 46, died Monday, April 21, 2003, at Conway Medical Center.
He was born Aug. 27, 1956, in Florence County. He grew up in the Spring Branch community of Horry County.
He was a 1974 graduate of Floyds High School and a 1978 graduate of Francis Marion College with a degree in business administration.
He had been employed for 25 years with the S.C. Employment Security Commission and was serving as the area director of the Coastal Workforce Center in Horry County.
He was a member of Spring Branch Baptist Church, where he was a former deacon and former treasurer. He served on the financial committee that was instrumental in the completion of the new fellowship hall in 1992.
He was a 25-year member of the International Association of Personnel in Employment Security. He held various offices including state chapter president, District V representative and Pee Dee Subchapter chair. He was a previous recipient of the James F. Walls Outstanding Service Award.
He has served on the Board of Directors for the Myrtle Beach Area Hospitality Association since June 2000 and played an integral role in the leadership of the organization. He chaired the Job Expo each year, bringing together the energies of the MBAHA, the S.C. Employment Security Commission, Horry County Department of Social Services, Waccamaw RTA, and Media Partners for what has been called the most effective Job Expo in South Carolina. It was his positive energy and leadership gifts that made this event, and all that he touched, successful. In receiving the Outstanding Service Award from the MBAHA in May 2001, he was described as a leader who ''not only made excellent decisions before and during the stresses of the Job Expo, he built and led a fantastic team that worked as a well-oiled machine.'' Martha Hunn of the MBAHA said, ''Charlie was kind, compassionate, and his positive spirit was contagious. We will miss that the most.''
He was a good friend to all that knew him, an avid hunter, gardener and bowler. He especially enjoyed being a gentleman farmer and getting back to his roots. He currently was serving as chairperson of Green Sea Floyds Elementary School Improvement Council and was a member of the Superintendents Advisory Council for Horry County Schools.
Survivors include his wife, Harriet Elvington Enzor; his son, Gilbert Elvington Enzor, both of Nichols; and his mother, Margaret Walters Enzor of the Spring Branch community.
