Obituary for ERNEST JAMES BOOTH

Ernest J. Booth was born on December 29, 2016, in Owings, MD to the late Lercy and Rebecca Booth. He departed this life peacefully on Tuesday, September 13, 2016, at Calvert Memorial Hospital.

Ernest was educated and graduated from Calvert County Public Schools. In 1959, he enlisted in the U.S. Army and received an honorable discharge in 1962. After his discharge, he moved to Washington, DC. In 1964, he started his career at the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) where he served in different supervisory positions. He retired from GPO in 2003 with 42 years of government service.

Ernest met and married (June 1976) his sweetheart, the lovely Phyllis Porter. They were blessed with a wonderful and loving marriage of thirty-one years. Together, they enjoyed traveling; entertaining family and friends; participating in church activities, social events and helping others.

Ernest had a special love and bond with his mother. He visited her often and made sure she received the best of care. He was a compassionate, quiet, and gentle man. If you needed advice or assistance, he would try to help you to the best of his ability. Ernest was someone who may have seemed quiet and shy at first, but once you got to know him, he was a fun person to be around and a man who loved fried chicken, especially his mom's.

In his spare time, he enjoyed cutting out coupons and bargain shopping (Dollar Tree, Big Lots) and preparing goodie bags for his sisters (Lillian, Landous and Ethel). He also enjoyed gardening and sharing his vegetables; washing his cars and watching football. He would sometimes say, 'those sorry Redskins lost again." For several years, he was a member of the Young and Restless Social Club along with his sister, Catherine Lindsey and brother, Howard Booth. Ernest could cut the rug at their cabarets and would dance thru the entire record (long version), Got to Give It Up by Marvin Gaye without breaking a sweat. This is why he was also known as Cool Breeze.

Ernest was a great son, husband, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, cousin and friend. We will truly miss him!

He leaves to cherish his memory: sisters, Lillian Taylor and Landaus Herbert, DC; brother, Howard Booth, (Owings, MD); sisters-in-law, Theresa Booth (Owings, MD) and Rita Redder (Forestville, MD); nieces, nephews and a host of other relatives and friends. His wife, Phyllis, and other siblings (Louis Booth, Lercy Booth, Jr., Catherine Lindsey, Irene Booth, Richard Booth, and Ethel Duppins) preceded him in death.
