Gary Borchman gained his heavenly wings on November 26, 2023. He was born in 1954 in Detroit, Michigan. Gary was the son of Lorraine and Leonard Borchman, although the majority of Gary’s life he spent with his loving foster parents, Agness and Henry Weathers, in Bridge, Oregon. Gary was a lifelong resident of Coos County, Oregon.
Gary married the love of his life, Jo Anne Claiborne-Borchman on August 23, 1996. They were married for 27 wonderful years.
Gary was blessed with a beautiful family; he raised 5 daughters and 1 son. Gary was a great dad to his kids; he was always full of laughter, teasing, and winks. He loved nothing more than his family.
Gary spent most of his life as a logger and ran machinery at the local Murphy’s and Roseburg Lumber mills. Gary also spent a couple of years logging in Alaska with other local loggers.
Gary loved hunting, fishing, music, and guitar playing (much to the chagrin of his family)! He loved his Dodge Dart Swinger and towed it around everywhere that he moved!
Gary is survived by his wife, Jo Anne Borchman, son Tom, daughters Melissa and Brenda, daughters and son in laws Christie and Jeff, Lori and Jamie, Bridgett and Tom, sister Darlene, 9 grandchildren, 1 great grandson, and many more beloved nephews and family. His family loved him immensely and they will forever miss the sparkle in his eyes, and his spontaneous air guitar playing.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, December 17 at 2 p.m. at the Eagles in Coquille, Oregon. Potluck dinner, please bring a dish and enjoy this time to celebrate Gary with family and friends!
