Following the passing of Horry County Councilman Bob Grabowski, Brad Dean, president and CEO of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, issued the following statement:

"Bob Grabowski admirably and effectively served both the residents of District 6, and the citizens of Horry County as a whole for more than 10 years. He was a staunch supporter of our community's law enforcement agencies, and worked hard to grow our economy and bring quality jobs to the Myrtle Beach area. His contributions to the community he loved will not be forgotten. Our thoughts and prayers are with Bob Grabowski's family during this difficult time."
