As a young boy he learned the value of hard work by helping his parents in the family business Community Sand & Gravel. He continued to work for his parents until he became an owner operator for Starline Trucking. Following his twenty-eight years at Starline, Ed went to work for DLM Trucking and ended his career at Vicks Trucking.
He married Debbie (Sowa) Booth in 1976. Ed was a gear head that loved anything with power and speed. It didn’t matter if it was a car, truck, boat or ATV. As long as it was fast, he was happy. Ed enjoyed being outside and soaking up the sun. He loved his jeep which he took on the annual summer trip to the Sand Dunes in Silver Lake, Michigan. Ed always looked forward to escaping the Wisconsin winter in Lake Havasu, Arizona where he could off road in the desert.
Ed was a devoted and loving father and grandfather. He was a good man that was strong and proud. Some of his most important moments of his life were the times he spent with his grandchildren. He lived life to the fullest and will be missed dearly.
Ed is survived by his loving wife Debbie of 44 years. Three children, Adam (Mallory) Booth, AJ (Kim) Booth, and Ashley Booth. Five grandchildren, Jaxn, Caleb, Grace, Connor, and a Granddaughter due this fall. Sister Linda (Rich Holcombe) Hays of Traverse City, MI.
