On July 27, 2019, David fell and suffered a broken hip. Complications following surgery kept him in the hospital fora month, most of it in intensive care. He died peacefully in his sleep on September 1, 2019.
According to his wishes there is to be no memorial service or burial. He asked to have a big party with food, beverages, music and laughter. He was remembered with a David Borger Memorial Hoot and Potluck on Saturday, March 14, 2020. The date was chosen because it is just after his birthday and just before his and Ann’s wedding anniversary. All those who attended enjoyed laughter, story telling and music in the celebration of his extraordinary life.
