Curtis Booher, Jr.
January 16, 1925 -- November 04, 2018

Curtis Oliver Booher, Jr., 93, died peacefully in his home on November 3, 2018. A navy veteran of World War II, he also served in the Air Force Reserves.

Curtis was born on January 16, 1925 in Humphreys, OK to Curtis Oliver Booher and Lillie Dale Blair. He grew up in small towns in southwest Oklahoma, then moved to Oklahoma City after his mother died. He joined the U. S. Navy on July 5, 1943, and served on several ships in the Pacific. He was proud to serve on the flagship USS Eldorado as she lay off the shores of Iwo Jima during the raising of the United States flag. After the end of WWII, he went to Oklahoma State University, graduating with a B.S. degree in business in 1949.

He worked in a variety of professions, from store manager to real estate and finally for the U.S. Department of Agriculture where he enjoyed his final position traveling to Texas’ neighboring states to audit records of school districts participating in the child nutrition programs. He retired in September 1999.

Curtis is survived by his wife, 4 children, 5 grandchildren, and 2 great-grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his father, mother, step-mother, and sister.

The Funeral Mass will be held at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, November 20, 2018, in the chapel of St. Jude Catholic Church followed by internment of his ashes in the Columbarium at St. Jude
