I am deeply saddened by Bordens death. I’m sure I speak for everyone at Newburgh Presbyterian Church when I say that we all loved him. He was always there every Sunday to greet me when I arrived at church. He was very kind and had a good sense of humor! We joked about many things! Thoughts and prayers going out to all of you!
Steve and I are so sad that Borden lost his brief fight with cancer. We could always count on Borden to be standing near the front door of our church,Newburgh Presbyterian , and always have something to say with a smile. We all loved Borden. He was One of the Good Guys , for sure.
Our thoughts and prayers go to his family at this most difficult time.
Medford was like a big brother to me.. He always gave a helping hand to me and my family. He was such a hard worker and always tried to take care of all of his family especially his grandchildren who lived with him. He was just like a father to his grandchildren. He will be deeply missed especially by his grandchildren and his wife of all most fifty years and his daughter Lisa that never left his sight. We are praying for your family during this time of need

Borden went to high school in Princeton where he met his wife, Jan. They were high school sweethearts. He started planning for their 50th anniversary back in April. He was so excited to celebrate with his loving wife. Borden was a hard worker. In 1969, he was enlisted in the Army as a mechanic. He worked for Alcoa for over 30 years where he retired. He also owned his own landscaping business. He and his wife were members of Newburgh Presbyterian Church where Borden was the trustee.
