Brian Harper Booth passed away peacefully at home in Vestavia Hills, Alabama, in his sleep early on the morning of Friday, September 7, 2018. He was born in Greenwood, Mississippi, on December 3, 1974, along with his twin sister, Katie.

Brian was a life-long sufferer from Cerebral Palsy, induced at birth. His family was blessed by his presence and the ability to provide his care for his entire life.

He was a member of Vestavia Hills Baptist Church and touched the lives of many people everywhere the family lived. He attended schools in Oxford, Mississippi, Concord, North Carolina, and Vestavia Hills, where he completed his education. The severity of his disability did not allow him to speak, but his countenance and wonderful dimpled smile let anyone in his presence know how appreciative he was of them and their presence in his life.

Brian is survived by his parents, Julia and Bob Booth of Vestavia Hills; his twin sister, Katie B. Whittington (Harlan) of Newnan, Georgia; brothers, Brad Booth (Jennifer) and Ben Booth, both of Hoover, Alabama; nephews, Andrew Schurig and Matthew Schurig of Newnan, Jake Booth, Alex Booth, Jack Booth, and Eli Booth; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

Brian was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Hugh and Lois Hall, and paternal grandparents, Elmo and Kitty Booth.

I first met Brian when I met his brother Brad, in 8th grade, when they moved to Vestavia in the fall of 1993. Brad and I became close friends and I came to know the Booth family pretty well after that.
I looked forward to going over to their house because everytime I came over, Brian was always there to greet me with his huge grin and those unforgettable dimples!
Over the years, there were a few times that I watched Brian and sat with him for Mrs. Booth. We'd read, watch TV--he was always happy, always smiling!
It was wonderful to have known him and it's a pleasure to have those memories to cherish. ♡♡♡
