Walter "Jimmie" Booth died peacefully on Thursday, March 16, 2017 in Rinaldi Convalescent Hospital, Granada Hills, CA at the age of 91. Jimmie was born on November 28, 1925 in Wilmore, KS.

He came with his parents to Newhall, CA in 1936 and graduated from San Fernando High School in 1943. He volunteered in the U.S. Army Force in January 1944 and served until May 1946.

He retired after 35 years in the Motion Picture Industry. Most of his work, and his pastime, involved horses: riding; training; and driving carriages and stagecoaches.

Jimmie is survived by his wife Laverne Booth of Valencia, CA; son Vernon Booth of Mesa, AZ; daughter Christina Mayberry of Valencia, CA; sister Gwendolyn Gallion of Castaic, CA; three grandchildren and four nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents Walter and Mary Booth of Newhall, CA; brother Roy Booth of Newhall, CA; and two infant sisters, Ruth and Ruby Booth of Wilmore, KS.
