A good friend, former NFL Football Player G. Booth Lusteg died last Thursday. Booth would travel three hours one way from Miami to Ft. Myers, Florida just to provide a Sunday Service for incarcerated kids. He was a great man!

I was notified by his daughter today and was invited to the services. Please pray for his family.

Here is an article about his passing in the Miami Herald:

Brother Booth’s Final Field Goal - Heaven!  

He shared the love of Jesus to everyone and anyone that he would meet.

He spoke of God’s Word and talked among the crowds and the man on the street.

He traveled all over the southwest reaching others and telling about God’s truth.

He made an impression on those who met him, he was known as our Brother Booth.

Brother Booth would go the distance to reach others especially incarcerated youth.

He traveled from east to the west; he was a class act and did what was best and right.

On assignment from The Lord; his calling was to reveal the truth about God’s light.

He went out on the mission field to churches and ministries both large and small.

He was going for a field goal for Jesus; he kept his heart and mind set on that goal.

His Godly service here on earth has ended as he touched many seniors and youth.

It’s high time to accept the ball and score one for Heaven and our Brother Booth.

I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

Former professional football player Gerald Booth Lusteg dies at 73 from lung cancer. Booth Lusteg, a former Miami Dolphins player, died July 12, 2012, at age 73. Booth Lusteg, a former Miami Dolphins player, died July 12, 2012, at age 73.

Gerald Booth Lusteg did it all.

He played minor league baseball, participated in three different American football leagues, was ranked No. 11 in the United States Tennis Association’s Men’s 40 Division, and even made his high school hall of fame for his performance on the basketball court.

Lusteg, who died last Thursday at 73, led the American Football League in kick scoring during his first season with the Buffalo Bills. He moved onto the Miami Dophins’ roster the next season and made every extra point he kicked. He also played for the Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers.

Lusteg, who lived in Plantation, was diagnosed with lung cancer in May 2009.

“He was a fighter, never complained, never shed a tear,” his daughter Lisa Lusteg Bennett said. “I couldn’t have asked for a better dad. I’m very very proud of him. He inspired me; he motivated me.”

Bennett recalled a time at a tennis tournament when an old man collapsed on the sidewalk and Lusteg rushed over and performed CPR to revive him.

In later life, Lusteg directed his focus on his faith. He was ordained and preached in ministries about self-motivation and determination. These were themes in his 2002 autobiography, Kick Rejection...and Win! He found a way to merge his two passions by creating Kicking for Christ, a nonprofit camp for underpriviledged youth.

Lusteg majored in psychology and mathematics at the University of Connecticut and later also received his master’s in number theory. He also had a real estate license.

Bennett said Lusteg received fan mail every couple weeks. The most important letter, addressed to “Gooster,” came from his granddaughter and Bennett’s daughter, Linae, despite her living five minutes away. Inside the letter was a lock of her hair.

Before Lusteg died, Bennett said he wanted to be buried with that lock.

“Once he loved you, he loved you strong and hard,” she said.

Services will be 6 p.m. Friday at Forest Lawn Funeral Home North in Pompano Beach. The funeral is at 11 a.m. Saturday.
