Jonathan Root Obituary

Jonathan Tyler Root, 22, of Myrtle Beach, SC, passed away at home on October 27th, 2023.

He was a great friend to many in his life. He loved bringing a smile to the faces of those he loved and even to those he had just met. He was innovative and kind. He was always quick to find the humor in any situation, even if it was at his own expense. He was a great father to Shiloh (Giselle Chaves). He is survived by his parents, Erik and Tracy Root. He was the youngest of five siblings, Robert (Cassandra) Root, Amanda (Christopher) Holt, Ronnie (Ashleigh) Root, and Devon Root. He is also survived by his grandparents, Betty Root of Myrtle Beach, SC, and Peggy (Robert) Hasselbach of Gaylord, MI, as well as his nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his grandparents, Ronald L Root of Myrtle Beach, SC, Suzanne and Ronald Smith of Lennon, MI, and Larry and Barb Thomas of Toledo, OH. 

Celebration of life will be held Nov 18th at 2 pm at 4918 Southgate Parkway Myrtle Beach SC.

Jonathan's one request was no black, bright colors only and to remember him by all the great memories he left behind.

Mr. Root is entrusted to the care of Kelvin F. Lewis, Funeral Director, and Lewis Crematory & Funeral Services of Myrtle Beach, SC. (843) 294-0011.
