David Thomas Booth


David Thomas Booth, of Roxboro, passed away February 23, 2019 at UNC Hospital in Chapel Hill.

Tom Booth was born Dec. 18, 1948 in Emporia, Kansas to Lloyd and Helen (Moore) Booth. Tom grew up on the family farm and graduated from Lebo High School in 1966. After graduation, Tom attended Fort Hays State University and completed a tour with the Air National Guard/Air Force Reserves.

Tom was an avid outdoorsman that loved hunting and fishing. It was his love of the outdoors and warm weather that took him away from Kansas, first to Texas and then to North Carolina. He always remained a loyal KU Basketball fan.

Tom is survived by two daughters, Jennifer (Steve) Bidwell of Mansfield, Texas and Jamie (Garrett) Shaddix of Wichita, Kansas and grandsons Jack and Henry Bidwell and Oliver Shaddix. He is also survived by his siblings, Cindy (jerry) Martin, Barb (Tom) Gurss, Mike Booth and Scott Booth. He was preceded in death by his son Jeremy Booth and his parents Lloyd and Helen Booth.

Graveside services will be held March 16, at 2 p.m. at Arvonia Cemetery, Arvonia, Kansas, followed by a lunch and fellowship at the Heidi Inn in Lebo, Kansas.

Walker’s Funeral Home of Chapel Hill is assisting the Booth family.
