Ronald Stephen Borgman
December 14, 1947 – September 3, 2019
Ronald Stephen Borgman was 71 years old when he passed away on September 3rd, surrounded by his family, at his home. He was born in Pennsylvania, the only child of Calvin and Elsie Borgman. Ronald's family chose to leave Pennsylvania and move to Colorado, where Ronald grew up in the Wheat Ridge area. He attended Jefferson High School, and then went on to Regis University for his bachelors degree. He enlisted in the National Guard, and began his career at Rocky Flats.
Ronald was a hard worker, he worked with Rocky Flats for over 30 years, and as an employee and coworker could be counted on. He was passionate about his job, and enjoyed what he did. When he wasn't working, he enjoyed playing golf, a great glass of red wine, and loved Christmas.
Ronald's biggest passion in life was his family. His wife, children, grandchildren, and dogs will miss his sense of humor, his jokster ways, and his big heart.
Ronald leaves behind his beloved wife of 35 years, Kathy; his adored children, Tammie, Ryan, Barbara, and Rob; his beautiful and well loved 9 grandchildren, and his 4 spoiled dogs. He is also survived by many family members and friends.
On September 12, 2019 at 2PM we plan to celebrate Ronald's life at Olinger Chapel Hill in Centennial, Colorado.
In lieu of flowers please make a contribution to the American Lung Association in Ronald's honor.

I will never forget Ron calling to get his new puppy Snickers. He was like a kid asking questions and getting so excited about his new dog. And then the love when he got to take Snickers home. He had the biggest grin on his face. Watching him gently love on this new little furball is a memory every dog should get to experience.

Ron and I grew up together basically from the ages of 5 & 8 years until into our 20's. We were the only two grandchildren of Frieda Borgman for years. Ron's father Calvin and my mother Mildred were brother and sister. I would go to Uncle Cal and Aunt Elsie's to visit for weekends some times. During those visits, I'd help Ron with his paper route. I got to know some of his friends and his neighborhood. We even had a couple of parties together, his friends and mine at his house. Even though "life" came between our time together; because of our childhood friendship we always knew we were there for each other.
Ron was a polite, quiet, gentle loving person. I will miss him very much.
