Dick will be sorely missed. We were fortunate to start our small business in the Garland District right next door to Dick's frame shop. He was the first to welcome us to the neighborhood and shared many gems of wisdom with us while we were next door neighbors. He was a lovely human being with a huge heart.

Dick was a good friend, always interested in others' lives and feelings, and will be sorely missed in the UU church and within his friend groups. I feel lucky to have known him these past few years.

To the family: So sorry for your loss. Hope you find comfort in knowing that our GRAND CREATOR comforts and cares for the bereaved.

Dick was a wonderful man and I was very glad to have known him.

I am truly sorry for your loss. I met Dick in Tulsa, OK in 1974 as he was then married to Willa, my friend. He was an interesting man and quite wise.

The Washington State Veterans Cemetery extend our deepest sympathies to the family of Richard I. Borden for your loss, to honor his service to our country and our patriotic hero.
