To Joe & Peggy Boozer and Boozer family,
My heart was saddened when my sister Told me today (10/17/20) about his passing. What a beautiful smile Enoch had. I enjoyed talking and listening to him while waiting to be adjusted at Dr. Longs chiropractic. Also anytime I saw him at St Luke’s. Heaven gained a special angel.

Our thought and Prayers are with all of Enoch's family. and Alice . Love, Jason Julie Bria and Bryce Crook

The world has lost one of the most kindest souls I have ever known and Heaven has gained a true angel. I've known Enoch since I was 3 years old. I was raised by a single mom who became friends with Enoch. He stepped into my life and became the only father figure I would ever know. I am incredibly thankful and grateful that God chose him to step in and fulfill the need of a fatherless little girl, who is now a much better person because of him. I love you Enoch. And I'm praying for all of those during this time that were blessed enough to have the privilege to have know Enoch Boozer.

Time passes all too quickly. I had the pleasure of working with Enoch many years ago at the SC Highway Dept. He was likeable and down to earth. As a Christian, he lived an exemplary life and served as a role model for us all. We remember his family in our prayers. Rest in peace, friend.

#4 Sheriff Lee Foster 2020-10-03 08:36
What a great guy! He had more knowledge of genealogy, especially St. Luke's/Stoney Hill, than anyone I have ever known. Enoch was an icon of Prosperity. One day we were in a very long wait at the eye doctor and he told me so much about my family's life that I did not know. I marveled at his ability just to be able to roll off who was kin to who and how. In addition to that knowledge he was a nice, friendly, and kind man. Our community will surely miss him and such a void will exist. Thank you for the blessings of a life well lived. Lee, Carol, Joseph, Amelia
