John Fernell Booth, 62, lost his long battle with a series of health issues on February 24, 2023, at Denver Hospice. A memorial inurnment service will be held on Friday, October 27, at 11:00 am at Louisville City Cemetery with Rev. Jonathan Melchior and family and friends officiating.
John was born in Brunswick, Glynn County, GA on December 16, 1960, to Fernell and Lorna Booth. He lived in Darien, GA until 1967 when the family moved to Louisville. He graduated from Louisville High School and got his master’s degree in Forest Resources at UGA, becoming a lifelong Bull Dawg Fan!
John met Christine Eleana O’Conner while attending summer school at Georgia and they were married when she finished her degree in Human Resources. They have 3 children, Ethan Willis, Isabelle Nichole, and Hannah Lauren Booth.
John went to work for Electronic Data Systems (EDS) in McLean, VA, eventually going into a new branch of EDS called MapQuest. They lived in St. Louis then moved to Denver when MapQuest moved there. Since then, he has worked for several telecommunication companies including Auto Desk, Phillips, AT & T, and Lumen (formerly Century Link) in Technical Sales.
John always enjoyed the outdoors including hunting, fishing, and golf which he learned early from his dad, and they enjoyed it always. He also loved camping which he and high school friends did. He and his children camped a lot and they learned to love it also. A special camping trip he had was with college roommates at George Smith State Park when he was home a few years ago – William Pilcher, Larry Blackburn, and Clay Fincher were lifelong friends – Mike Kellcher, also a college roommate, was with them also.
John is survived by his wife and three children, parents, and sister Claire Booth Little and her husband Dwain Little of Dublin, a brother-in-law Michael O’Conner (Mary) of MO, Susie O’Connor Rhodes (Carl) of Cincinnati, OH and several nieces and nephews.
