Travis Scott Booth
Our beloved husband, father, son and brother, Travis Scott Booth, passed away on August 16, 2019 in Bountiful, Utah. Travis was born in Chillicothe, Missouri on October 12, 1974 to Gary and Nancy Booth. His family later moved to Joplin, Missouri where he grew up and graduated from Joplin High School in 1993.
Travis received a Bachelor of Science degree in business from Missouri State University. He went on to earn a Master of Business Administration degree also from Missouri State University. Additionally, he received a Master of Physical Therapy degree from Southwest Baptist University. Travis was a board-certified orthopaedic specialist from the American Physical Therapy Association. He was also certified in hand therapy. Travis was working toward a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from the University of Montana at the time of his death.
Travis met his future wife, Lori Prichard, on a blind date in 2002 in Joplin, Missouri. The two were married in Webb City, Missouri on October 16, 2004. They spent nearly 15 glorious years together loving one another deeply. They have two beautiful children, Magnin, 13, and Brennan, 10. To Travis, his children were his greatest accomplishment. He loved them beyond measure.
Travis loved being a physical therapist and took the well-being of his patients to heart. Helping to heal his patients was a great source of joy to him. He received a lot of love from them in return. One patient wrote to his wife saying "he truly changed my life forever." Those words would have made him so proud.
More than anything, Travis spent his life devoted to his family. There was no distraction, no cause, no purpose greater than them. He loved them deeply and unconditionally. He was pure of heart and the kindest of men. Our lives will never be the same without him.
Travis was an avid sportsmen and played on his high school and college football teams. He also played golf, basketball with his kids, tennis with his wife and liked to ski. He coached his daughter's volleyball team as well. He spent countless hours with his wife hiking in the mountains near his home in Utah.
Travis is survived by his wife, Lori, and two children, Magnin and Brennan of Bountiful, Utah; parents, Gary and Nancy of Joplin; brother and sister-in-law, Garrett and Leasa of Rogers, Arkansas; father-in-law and mother-in-law, Ed and LaVietta Prichard of Joplin; brother-in-law and sister-in-law Brian and Jennifer Prichard of Caledonia, Michigan; and one niece and four nephews.
A Funeral Mass for Travis was held on August 20, 2019 at Saint Olaf Catholic Church in Bountiful, Utah. While Travis lived in Utah for the past 12 years, he would say to anyone that Missouri was his home. He loved the rolling hills, the oak and maple trees, the lightning bugs and the sound of the crickets and cicadas at night. Home is where he belongs. A celebration of life service will be held for Travis at Ozark Memorial Park Cemetery at 415 N Saint Louis Avenue in Joplin at 11 am on October 19, 2019.

I was heartbroken to learn of Travis' passing. I had the opportunity of being a patient of his here in West Jordan UT in 2016 and again in 2018. He was one of the kindest, compassionate, nonjudgmental people I have ever come in contact with. His genuine and sincere concern for my well being meant the world to me. He was more like a friend during my appointments to his clinic than my being a patient. My deepest condolences to his family and loved ones. He was truly a wonderful human being, and I feel privileged to have crossed paths with him in this life.

So sorry for your heartache. Doug told us of a young Travis playing football and how enthusiastic and positive he was for the whole team. I hope your memories become all things happy as I’m sure that would be travis’s wish for you.

Travis was very kind to me as a sophomore when he was a senior. Rode with him to rehab and jammed out to “End of the road” boys 2 men. Great guy and never had anybody dislike him! Sorry for this loss!
