I did not know Mark personally but I am so very saddened and shocked to see his photo on this website as I was seeking another friend. I feel compelled to let you know that although I never formally was introduced, he made a lasting impression on me as a great man of faith and joy. As both a parishioner of St. Angeles and a member of the Fairview Rec, Mark’s distinctive smile and happy go lucky attitude was always infectious. Many times I would just pass him at the Rec and he always smiled and said hello. I did not even know him by name but I knew him by his ushering over at St. Angela’s. My husband is so saddened to just now hear of his passing as he said he always enjoyed talking to him at Cub Scouts when our son Christian was much younger. I will miss seeing Mark who put so much positive energy out for others.....Something so desperately needed more of in this world. Your family will be in our nightly prayers with our children. May God Bless Mark and all of your family.

Eric and Luke,
My heart goes out to you all during this difficult time. While I didn’t know your dad well, every time I saw him at a Cross Country or Track meet he made time to come over and say hello and he always put a smile on my face. I’ve been thinking of you all and sending my love and strength.

Mark was such a special man with a giant heart and love of life. Both of us served in the military at the same time and it made it difficult to stay in touch through the years, but Mark made a point to contact me miles and states apart. He could re-start a conversation after months or even longer like we never missed a week of catching up, always talking about his kids, and laughing about old times back in the Ville. We all know he had a great laugh!! He really valued his friendships and he certainly loved the Black and Gold! When he moved out west in the early 90’s , he and I would hang out together with his brother Joe in LosAngeles, and then later on when he was selling coal in Salt Lake. We went to a couple Utah Jazz games and would go to Temple Square and reminisce about Brownsville and the mighty Falcons.. Mark loved his home town and all the friends and family back in Western PA. When Bones called and told me about his death, it took quite some time to fully process this tragedy. Mark was a patriot, loved his wife and kids so very much, and he always made a special effort to call or send a card to his friends. He was a true friend. You will be missed Lieutenant Borse. RIP my friend and God bless you Monica and kids. Sincerely, Major Daniel Faith, U.S. Army, Ret.

My sympathies and prayers to the family and to all, especially Eric, who I have met and conversed with at several Browns Backer Sundays. I truly liked Mark, a very genuine person. I will miss him and feel bad about his sudden passing. Nice to know we will meet again in heaven. God Bless!

My deepest condolences to the family of my dear friend. I have been in shock all day, having just heard that Mark is gone. He was one of my closest friends in our business and I will miss him and his laugh more than I can begin to imagine. Although we have never met, I feel as if I know you all because of all the hours he and I spent discussing our families. Our discussions were always full of laughter, as any discussion with him always was, but they were also full of pride. I have never known a prouder man - proud of his family, his faith, his service to our country, and our industry, in that order. I was proud to be his friend, and will miss him greatly. That being said, my life was fuller for having known him. God rest his soul, and please accept the condolences and prayers of my family for yours.

I am very saddened by Marks passing. I have known Mark for over 25 years. I worked with Mark in sales for over 20 years, and loved his dedication to his Faith, family, and Marine Corps. He always had a positive attitude and good to say about everyone no matter the circumstances. The most difficult situations always brought the best out of Mark, and made everyone around him more positive, we enjoyed many laughs together over the years. After my retirement in 2012, Mark never forgot to call during the year, especially on the Marine Corps. Birthday and always called just before Christmas. I will pray for his beloved wife Monica (Sweetness) and the boys, of whom he was so proud, I will never forget you Mark or our friendship. SEMPER FI Marine !! God Bless !

Two words come to mind when I think of Mark - smiles and miles. Mark made you feel that you had made his day when he'd greet you with that big, infectious smile, soon followed by "Hey man, how are you doing?" I would often see Mark on one of his extended walks outside or at the Rec Center - at a pace matched (and likely fueled) by the energy in his smile.
I came to know Mark, Monica, Luke and Eric through the boys' participation in Cub and Boy Scouts. When his schedule allowed, Mark was first in line among the fathers to offer to drive Scouts and equipment to camp outs, assist with Scouting events, etc.
My family was especially touched by the entire Borsody family's support of the annual charity walk/run event held each year to support the Intermediate Care Facility where our daughter Kelly lives. There were several years that Luke and Eric were among the top finishers!
Sherry and I send our thoughts and prayers to Monica, Luke and Eric.
