Bill Borent Sr. Obituary

Bill Borent Sr., 61, a lifelong resident of Taylor, died Thursday evening at home after a longtime illness. He is survived by his soulmate and loving wife of 41 years, Donna Smith Borent. The couple would have celebrated a 42nd wedding anniversary on Sept. 2.

Born Oct. 22, 1958, son of Elliot and Barbara Allin Borent, Moodus, Conn., Bill was a graduate of Riverside High School before attending Luzerne County Community College. He had worked as a machinist at McKinney Manufacturing in Scranton, before its closure.

Bill was a true outdoorsman who loved to hunt and to fish. He could always be found working in his garage alongside his best friend and neighbor, Tom Schultz. Above all else came his family, especially making memories with his five grandchildren.

An example of both bravery and selflessness, he fought a longtime illness while never complaining about any of his ailments. His impact on the lives of his loved ones can never be summed up in only a few words. He'll be dearly loved and forever missed by all who ever knew him.

He is survived by two adored sons, Billy Borent and wife, Annie; and Chris Borent and wife, Jennifer, all of Taylor; five beloved grandchildren, Dylan, Logan, Gianna, Mason and Amelia; his siblings, Deborah Sharek and husband, Thomas, Moosic; and Ron Davis and wife, Sarah, Middletown, Conn.; and nieces, nephews and cousins.

A blessing service at the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home Inc., 517 N. Main St., Old Forge, with burial at Holy Cross Cemetery in Old Forge will be private. Please visit the funeral home's website to leave a condolence.
