Curtis William Booth

November 12, 1941 ~ July 16, 2022 (age 80)


Curtis William Booth, born November 12, 1941 to William E. Booth and Florence V. Booth, passed away peacefully in his sleep on July 16, 2022, at Deaconess Hospital of End-Stage Heart Failure.

Curtis grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota in an idyllic neighborhood surrounded by parks and lakes within blocks of our small conservative home. Curt’s father introduced him to hunting and fishing at a very young age.  Throughout his adult life, he continued these adventurous outings of hunting and fishing, boating on lakes and walking in the woods.  He liked sitting around a campfire at night, swapping stories and telling lies with family and friends.  Over the years, Curt valued his friendships and always treated people with respect.  He was a good man who loved life.

As a young man, Curt joined the U.S. Air Force, and later with his wife Goldie, lived in Spokane Valley raising Goldie's two grandchildren, Jeremy and Sabrina Dafler.  Throughout the years, the family shared many memories, and the grandchildren felt blessed to have been raised in the loving, stable environment their grandparents offered them. Employed at the County Parks Department until his retirement, Curt was also a long-time member of the North West Wildlife Council of Spokane. 

Curt is survived by his sister Kathleen Mary Booth Rulffes and grandchildren Jeremy and Sabrina Dafler. He is preceded in death by his wife Goldie; his mother Florence V. Booth and father William E. Booth. 

At Curt's request, there will be no funeral services.  Curt and his wife will be inurned together at St. Joseph's cemetery. To share memories of Curtis and leave condolences for the family, please visit Curtis's Tribute Wall.
