Connie Mack Booker

June 8, 2019

Connie Mack Booker passed away to be with the Lord on May 28, 2019, surrounded by his loving family.

He was a paper mill brat. He would say the paper mill smell was like bacon and eggs to him. His father, wife’s father and himself all Retired from St. Regis, then Champion which is now known as International paper. In his younger years he was a volunteer at the Cantonment Fire Department and worked as an EMT for Escambia County. He loved woodworking and fishing.

Connie Mack is preceded in death by his father, Wilma T. Booker; mother, Mary Jean Whitfield Booker; maternal and paternal grandparents; and his wife Cheryl’s parents who truly thought he was the best.

He is survived by his wife, Cheryl Graham Booker; son, Curtis Booker; daughter, Christin Taylor; grandchildren, Shelby, Courtney, Madison, Brianna, and Brandon; great-grandchildren Grayson and Maci; all of Cheryl’s brothers and sisters, Faye, Margie, Jerry, Linda, Tommy (Liz) and Peggy (Chuck);, and one very special Aunt Mary; and lots of nieces and nephews.

Everyone that knew him loved him. He was such a humble person and would give you the shirt off his back even the days he wasn’t feeling good. He has fought an ugly fight that finally won. But while he was sick it never stopped him from being like the energizer bunny. His wife always called him that.

The family would like to say thank you to each and every person that loved, helped and supported him during his illness. Thanks again every one of you made a special impact in his life and he loved you.

The family would also like to thank Cheryl’s sister Linda for everything she did to help out while he was sick. From staying in Gainesville, taking him to doctor’s appointments, or just checking on him while he was at home sitting in his shop. Linda, we know it was a lot but he truly appreciated everything you did and loved you like a blood sister.

So glad he is no longer suffering and able to rest in peace.
