Joshua “Josh” Eric Booth, 34, of Statesville, N.C., and formerly of Troutman, N.C., went to be with the Lord on Thursday, December 15, 2022.

Josh was born on April 24, 1988, in Mooresville, N.C., the son of Jill Elizabeth Booth. He was a graduate of Lake Norman High School and worked in landscaping and construction.

One of Josh’s greatest joys was spending time with family, especially Khloe, Wade and Mae. Josh was a big kid at heart and connected with them on their level. He was a talented artist who had a love for sports and the outdoors.

Josh was preceded in death by his grandfathers, James Ronald Booth and Norman Goelzer; and his uncle, James Ronald Booth Jr.

Those left to cherish his memory include his mother, Jill Booth; brother, Garrett Deweese and wife Elizabeth; grandmother, Edna Goelzer; aunt, Kelly Fox and husband Dan; nieces and nephews, Khloe, Wade, and Maelyn; and cousins, Jen Booth, Jamie Booth, Kaitlyn Fox and Justin Fox. Also surviving are several loving extended family members.

The family will receive friends on Tuesday, December 20, 2022, from 2 to 2:45 p.m. at Cavin-Cook Funeral Home, Mooresville. A Graveside Service will follow at 3 p.m. at Glenwood Memorial Park.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the family at P.O. Box 118, Scotts, NC 28699, c/o Jill Booth, to help offset funeral expenses.
