Following the passing of architect, Tom Pegram, Brad Dean, president and CEO of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, issued the following statement:
"Tom Pegram was a gentleman in every sense of the word. A true visionary who led with great integrity, his decades of contributions as an architect, as well as devoted leader in the Myrtle Beach area, will live on for years to come. He was a gracious, humble and optimistic leader who was recognized for consistently having kind words for everyone. He was a great collaborator. His years of dedication to the work he genuinely loved certainly helped transform the Myrtle Beach area into the great tourism destination it is today. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends during this difficult time."
