Obituary for JOSEPH JOHN BOOZE

Joseph John Booze, 85, of Huntingtown, MD passed away at Calvert Memorial Hospital, Prince Frederick, MD. Life began for Joseph John Booze on August 24, 1926 with the late James Booze and the late Mazzie Coates Booze. Joe was the sixth of nine children. Midday Monday, around 2:00 p.m. on Columbus Day, Joe quietly slipped away unto his eternal voyage. Joe’s early education began in Calvert County Public Schools. He terminated his education early to seek employment to support his family. Joe was a firm believer in the importance of education. Therefore he took pride in his efforts in making provision to further his late wife’s, his children, and grandchildren’s education. Joe’s career was that of a construction worker. Upon retirement around 1980 from the Original Local Construction Union 74 which is now 657, Joe continued and fulfilled his love for farming and landscaping by being a self made business man. Joe could be found venturing to one piece of farm equipment to another. Also, he relished his time at home “budding” with his dogs. On September 20, 1950, Joe was united in holy matrimony to the late Vera Holland Booze. From this union were three children, Vondeleah B. Parran, Gail D. Booze, and the late Renee M. Cauthen. Joe and Vera devoted their lively hood to their family’s well-being. Joe and Vera adopted their granddaughter, Jasmine Cauthen upon Renee’s death. Also, they joyously raised their oldest granddaughter, Marita Parran-Mason. In Joe’s later years, he enjoyed hosting celebratory dinners and cook outs at his home. He was a social butterfly with people of every race, age, and gender. He relied on the stewardship and dedication of his nephew, Thomas Gray, Jr. (Dickie). Joe and Dickie had a father/son relationship. Joe also cherished the company of his friends: Joe Adams, Howard Booth Sr., Joe Jones, Walter Hall, John Henry, Charles Penn, Tony and Joyce and Bert and Rayfield Jones. Those left to cherish his memories are: two daughters; Vondeleah Parran of Prince of Frederick, Maryland and Gail Booze of Huntingtown, Maryland, three grandchildren; Marita Parran-Mason (Douglas) of North Beach, Maryland, Jasmine Cauthen of Huntingtown, Maryland, Patrice Stepney of St. Leonard, Maryland, and one great-grandchild; Jaira Mason of North Beach, Maryland; three sisters, Hilda Grade and Bernice Stone of Owings, Maryland, and Anna Millings of University Park, Maryland , one brother Robert Booze (Norma) of King George, Virginia; three sister in laws, Lovelett Reid, Beulah Watts (Bishop Robert), and Mary Holland of Huntingtown, Maryland, and Sofronia Holland of Washington, DC.; and one brother-in-law, Wilford Jones of Huntingtown, Maryland.
