Nathan Bedford Booth

Nathan Bedford Booth’s work was finished on earth, and God called him home on the morning of January 31, 2024 at the age of 92. His Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, February 24, 2024 at 10:00am at Scott’s Funeral Home in Gatesville, Texas. 

Nathan, a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather, was born on November 9, 1931 in Devine, Texas. He married Joyce Gooden on June 10, 1953 in Riviera, Texas, achieving 70 years of marriage. 

He spent his entire life serving God. In 60 years of ministry, he pastored 12 churches in Texas. He also served 9 years as a missionary in Mexico, establishing a Spanish language school in Guadalajara, Jalisco.

An outdoorsman who enjoyed mowing, hunting, gardening, fishing, and cutting down trees—Nathan spent as much time as he could outside on his land. He always worked to make things better than when he found them.

 He is preceded in death by his mother and father, Clifton and Alice Booth; his 4 brothers and 1 sister, Clifton, Norman, George, Ernest, and Joyce.

 He is survived by his loving wife of 70 years, Joyce Booth; daughter, Natha Booth; daughter, Lois Stevens and her husband Doug; son, David and his wife Pam; grandchildren, Canyon, Callie, Clint and his wife, Kate; Lindsey and husband Chris; Kaylen and husband Rocky; Landon and wife Lauren; Dustin and wife Tori; Dillon and wife Haley; Derek and wife Ashley; Ryan and wife Kate; Aaron and wife Sam; Jenna and husband Trevor; great grandchildren, Brandon, Blake, Harper, Eliza, Margo, Jesse, Jackson, Graham, Sawyer, Anakin, Deacon, Haven, Titus, Dakota, Summer, Jackson, Marshall, Charlotte, Hannah, Davy, Dashel, and Piper.
