Robert Hansen Booth
June 14, 1948 - Aug. 30, 2013
PLYMOUTH — Robert Hansen Booth, 65, of Plymouth, passed away Aug. 30, 2013. Born June 14, 1948, Bob lived in Bloomfield Hills, Mich., until graduating from the University of Michigan. He eventually became a Ford dealer in Platte City, Mo. with much success.
In the early 1990s Bob brought his family to Plymouth where he led the Plymouth Rock Golf Course until his recent retirement. A devoted father, Bob dedicated his life to raising his son and positively touching the lives of many others. If you knew him, you would know that asking for a simple “high-five” meant a long, great story was headed your way, which was bound to make you smile.
He is pre-deceased by his sister, Constance Kummerow and his parents, Douglas and Dorothy Booth.
He is survived by his son, Douglas (Kelsey) Booth; his stepson, Zackary Naas; and brother-in-law, Dr. Arnold Kummerow.
A memorial service celebrating Bob’s life will be held at 1 p.m. on Oct. 5 at the Plymouth Rock Golf Course in Plymouth. Private burial: Detroit, Mich.
