Florist Note- Please deliver any floral tributes to our Seaford Location on Thursday July 11, 2019 by 3 PM. John T. “Jack” Booth - January 15, 1943 - June 19, 2019, 76 years old. Jack Booth, beloved son, brother, uncle, cousin, and friend passed away at the Seaford Genesis Center on June 19, 2019. Born and raised in Seaford, Jack was the official family photographer who was known for always wanting to get the shot just right and the historian who could recall a family fact, name, or story with great detail. Throughout his life he enjoyed regular visits with family to The Railroad Cottage in Rehoboth Beach, Hershey, Pa, and Longwood Gardens. He would also tell stories from his visit to the 1964/65 New York City World’s Fair where he saw Michelangelo’s Pieta, the Royal Tire Ferris Wheel, and fascinating things from the future that eventually became a part of everyday life. After completing High School Jack worked for many years at the Flagship restaurant where he “ran a tight ship” and knew all the locals. Jack was a member of the Seaford Church of Christ where he had lifelong friends; particularly, Don, Roger, and Ron. They maintained a close relationship with Jack visiting often to lift his spirits and bring him his favorite thing, ice cream! That always brought a smile to his face. Marty was also a close friend whose visits he looked forward to, and she always kept his room decorations current to the holidays which he really enjoyed. A special thank you to his Genesis family who provided care and comfort to him over the years. Jack is survived by his cousins: LouEtta McClaflin and James Ray Booth; his nephews and nieces: Rob, Maryanne, Cate, Gary, Jimmy, Cathy and Susan; his sister-in-law, Lynn Byrne-Booth-Anthony; as well as many family relatives in Hershey, Pa. He was preceded in death by his parents, John A. and Helena G. Booth; and his brothers: Richard G. and W. Robert “Bob” Booth Sr. Funeral services will be held on Friday July 12, 2019 at 11:00 AM at Watson-Yates Funeral Home, a member of the Parsell Funeral Family, 609 East King Street, Seaford, DE.
