March 8, 1923 - December 15, 2014 Booth Colman, age 91, passed away in his sleep at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. He was born in Portland, OR on March 08, 1923 to Sol and Sona Cohn. Booth is survived by his brother, Howard Cohn (Portland, OR) and has a predeceased sister, Sharlene Bender (Bellevue, WA). Booth is also survived by two nieces; Shellie Bender Lavaris (Bellevue, WA) and Susan Cohn Savage (Portland, OR), and two nephews; Scott Bender (Seattle, WA) and Stephen Bender (Bellevue, WA), as well as six great-grand nephews and a niece. Booth attended both the Universities of Washington and Michigan. He was a character actor whose early start was in radio. Booth was known for his many roles in television, stage, and movies; although, he was best known for his roles as Dr. Zaius in "The Planet of the Apes" TV series, and the recurring role of Ebenezer Scrooge in the stage adaptation of "A Christmas Carol." Booth was a humble man who possessed great wit and charm and was loved by the actors he shared the stage and screen with. Booth was a scholar who was well-versed in both history and early religions and had mastered at least five languages. Booth will be sorely missed by all who knew or came in contact with him. In lieu of flowers, the family requests consideration of a donation to Actors Fund of America, National Federation for the Blind, or United Jewish Appeal.
