  1. Uncle Boots, never had anything bad to say about anyone. He always started the conversation with, ‘Hey Buddy’. He will be missed. The good Lord be with you buddy.

  9. About a year or so ago, I had the pleasure of meeting ‘Booter’ at a cook out where he shared his story with me of his move to the North Carolina mountains to raise his family. I was instantly drawn to him – his quiet strength, determination AND his mischievous grin. He reminded me of my own grandfather who I dearly loved and miss. He seemed to be quite a character with strong values – values that were important to him to pass on to his family – I’m sure he’s proud to see his family still growing strong in the place he grew to love and call home. I only regret I didn’t have the opportunity to know him longer – he is a blessing and will be missed.

  11. Jimmy and family: I am deeply saddened by the passing of my favorite uncle Boots. I will always have fond memories of my family driving to Candler to visit when I was just a youngster. Boots and Beryl always stopped by here in Marion when they were on their way to Pennsylvania each year. I talked with Boots after he was admitted to the Nursing Home. Iasked how he was doing and he said he would be ok as soon as he got out of that ‘horsepistol’. He always kept his sense of humor. He and Beryl were always here when my father (Shorty, his brother) was under the weather. They always brightened the situation. I regret that I was unable to be there for the services but there is no doubt that Boots (and Beryl) will always be in my heart. God bless you all.

  13. Jimmy,
    Boots was like a grandfather to me. I am sorry to hear of his passing but I know that he is in a better, happier place. I am sorry that we could not be there for the services. Growing up there was always plenty for Glenn, Eric, Anthony, Scotty and myself to get into. Boots just smiled and let us be kids. He will be missed.
    Your family will be in my prayers.
    Tina, Jason and Nate Honeycutt
