John Milton Booth

AGE: 87 • Bear

John Milton Booth, age 87, of Bear, DE, passed away on May 17, 2016. John enjoyed being social and active within his community. From working with his father at a young age to his last job at 80 years of age, John never ceased to amaze people with his caring nature and hardworking attitude. His interests included the weather, the Phillies and Eagles, and being a part of any celebration.

John was a French horn player in the National Guard Reserves. His love for music carried on as he became a member of his church choir. John had an unspeakable baritone voice that everyone stopped in their tracks for. His voice will truly be missed by all those that loved him.

John is survived by his daughter and caregiver, Stacy L. Yates and husband Edward of Bear; grandsons, Edward III and Evan J. Yates; and granddaughter, Ciara L. Yates. He was preceded in death by his wife, Elizabeth Ann Booth.

A visitation for family and friends will be held on Sunday, May 22, 2016 from 2:30-4 PM in the Strano & Feeley Family Funeral Home, 635 Churchmans Road, Newark, DE 19702 followed by a service in celebration of John's life at 4 PM.
