James A Borror

1956 ~ 2021 (age 64)


James Alan Borror, 64, passed away Tuesday, May 18, 2021.  Jim was well known in the community as a business man, father, and a devoted friend. 

Jim was born to Duane and Marilyn Borror on June 24th, 1956.  He was married to Donna on June 25th, 1977.  They started their newlywed life in the San Fernando Valley, but soon moved to Klamath Falls to start a business in 1981.

He spent the majority of his adult life cultivating Borror Cabinets.  The cabinet shop brought many people into his life that impacted him, he saw many of the local contractors and craftsmen as lifelong friends.  Jim also respected and loved the "guys" at the shop, he had so many employees through the years who he respected and was loyal to.

Jim loved Jesus, and was a very caring man of character.  He was an active member of Bible Baptist Church and loved many different areas of ministry. Jim had a men's bible study that met every Tuesday night, everyone who came to that group held a special place in his heart.  Jim was an avid supporter of Crosspoint Christian School (Triad) and Mountain Lakes Bible Camp.  He loved those ministries that supported kids and drew them to the love of Christ.

Jim loved Donna and his family. His kids grew up with the most amazing example of how to love your wife. We saw him lead with a quiet integrity that is hard to mimic.  He taught us about love, respect, and devotion by being a man of his word who was also incredibly generous with his time and energy.  He taught each of us to follow our dreams and work hard.  He was so proud of his kids and it was a normal occurrence for people to come to us and say "Well your dad was bragging about you the other day."    If you think he loved and was proud of his kids, you should have heard him talk about his grandkids.  Nine grandkids total called him Papa and boy did he love that title.  Papa took kids for rides on the lawn mower, built giant fires, and would hold babies until they would both fall asleep. 

Jim loved not only his family, but his dogs. He had many dogs throughout the years, all of whom seemed to love him to most. It wasn't uncommon to see Lucy or Bella in the front seat of his truck or right on his heels. Some of the other things he loved were Raquetball, gardening, and making homemade pickles. Jim had a fridge full of pickles all summer and would give them away to anyone he crossed paths with. He will be missed. 

He is survived by his parents Duane and Marilyn Borror and five siblings.  His Wife Donna Borror.  His four children, Matt & Cindy Borror, Tracy (Borror) & Tim Laurance, Suzanne (Borror) & Marc Hawthorne, and Amanda (Borror) & Blake Trumbull. His Nine Grandkids Kalli, Josiah, Lucas, Emily, Hope, Simon, John, Trey, & Cruz.
