Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

Robert (Bob) Forrest Booth, 78, of Vero Beach, FL, peacefully went to be with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Saturday, January 9, 2021.

Bob was born August 12, 1942, in Searcy, Arkansas, to the late Harvey D. Booth and Alma (Forrest) Jefferies. After attending Vero Beach High School, he proudly served in the U.S. Navy for ten years.

Bob attended Brevard Community College and shortly after began his career in the legal and title insurance industry. In 1976 he moved to Newark, Ohio, where he established, owned, and operated Midland Title Insurance Company for over 25 years and innovated the industry.

In 1977, he met his best friend Angela (Harper) Booth, whom he married on July 22, 1978. Together they raised four wonderful children.

After retiring in 1996, Bob and Angie moved to Vero Beach, Florida. They enjoyed spending time traveling around the United States and Europe and taking multiple cruises. Bob had an intense passion for golf, enjoying countless hours on the fairway with many great “golfing buddies” and his favorite partner, Angie. Bob also enjoyed fishing, sailing, singing, and playing guitar, gardening, metal detecting, a cold beer, and a good glass of wine.

Bob was a man of faith, compassion, and truth, who loved and was loved deeply. There is no greater legacy than that. Bob lived life on his terms, filling every minute of his days with activities he enjoyed and helping friends and neighbors, who lovingly referred to him as “The Mayor.” Bob’s quick wit, infectious smile, kind, and compassionate spirit will be missed by all who cherished time spent with him. Although we are completely heartbroken, we are thankful for the time we had with him.

Bob was preceded in death by brother-in-law ID Jones, sister Ann Clayton (Booth) Jones, and grandson Robbie Greaves. He is survived by his wife Angie; children Robert (Sally) Booth Jr., Troy (Dixie) Dunlap, George (Karen) Booth, and Bridget (Julian) Allen; nine grandchildren Brandi Booth, Brian (Amber) Hoskinson, Kristin (Eric) Miscuda, Ashley (Ben) Goodwin, Madeline McClinchie, Abby Booth, Natalie, and Lucy Allen; one great-granddaughter Crosley Hoskinson and a second great-grandchild due in January; brother-in-law and sister-in-law Jerry and Marilyn Krebs; nephews Ivan Jones, Jr. and Jason Staples; and niece Suzanne Thirkell.

Services will be held at a later date. Please consider a donation in Bob’s memory to First United Methodist Church of Vero Beach, The Salvation Army, or the Paralyzed Veterans of America.

Arrangements by Thomas S. Lowther Funeral Home & Crematory, Vero Beach.

Angie, how heartbroken I was to hear of Bob’s passing. I pray that you receive strength, comfort and peace as you lean on our Heavenly Father as you walk this new path. I am sure Melissa met him at the gate and is showing him around his new home. May Almighty God hold you tightly in his loving arms.

I share with all your friends in expressing my sympathy . . . we all expect to live to a ripe experience of life. Bob did just that, though it was cut short of what each of us wold wish for him, for you and for all of us. As his Pastor and friend, it was my delight tin sharing part of the richness of his life. Retirement for me took me miles away from Very Beach, but my memory of you and Bob, and my few visits were and always will be forever a joy to reflect upon the richness he shared with others.
