| February 7, 2019

Our beloved Jordan River Booth, was called home to be with the Lord on Wednesday, February 06, 2019, at the age of 29 after a long battle with addiction. For years we feared his addiction would claim his life and we are grateful that when he died, he was safe and with his family.

He was born on July 29, 1989, in Oil City, he was the son of the late Robert E. Booth Jr. and Sharon L. Dunkle-Booth of Strattanville.

Jordan worked as a Heavy Equipment Engineer.

He was a member of the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church of Clarion and also attended the New Rehobeth Greenville-Presbyterian Church of Clarion.

Jordan enjoyed hunting, fishing, four wheeling, riding his motorcycle, refurbishing tractors, and spending time with his family, especially his son, Grayson, who was the light of his life. He also loved being with his dog, Cami.

Jordan was a gentle soul and he had a heart that was as big as it was broken. He put up a strong fight for 5 years, since the loss of his father.
