Glen G. Borley, 64, Bellevue resident, passed away peacefully, Friday, March 18, 2022, at his home surrounded by his family. He was born July 8, 1957, to Verna (Dalebroux) Borley and the late Julius Borley. He graduated from St. Philip the Apostle Grade School and in 1975 from Preble High School. He married the love of his life, the former Mary Konop on April 11, 1981, at St. Philip the Apostle Catholic Church. He was employed at Fort Howard Paper Company and then the Konop Companies, retiring after 30 years of service on December 1, 2018.
Glen’s life was dedicated to his family and it was very well known that his precious grandkids were at the top of the list. A tradition that started many years ago was the week-long cabin rental in Phelps, something the whole family looked forward to every summer. He had a love for snowmobiling, fishing, horseshoes, boating and riding his motorcycle. Glen always enjoyed a good card game, especially 65, 31, Sheepshead and we can’t forget Cribbage. Bowling was a true passion for Glen and he racked up (19) 300 games. Glen was always a hardworking man, taking pride in everything he did. He was always willing to lend a hand to his family and friends.
Glen is survived by his wife Mary and their three children: Katie (Jesse) Turkow; Chad (Elise) Borley and Nate (Sarah) Borley; five precious grandchildren: J.J., Lorelei, Greta, Vayda and Ellie; his mother, Verna Borley; two brothers, Wayne (Linda) Borley; Larry Borley (girlfriend, Sylvia Murphy) and one sister, Lori (Jon) Smith; his in-laws, Dave (Kathy) Konop and Tom “TJ” (Karen) Konop; many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his father, Julius Borley, his in-laws, Louie and Pat Konop and his precious granddaughter, Aubrey.
A private funeral service was held at Proko-Wall Funeral Home with Sr. Laura Zelten officiating. A celebration of Glen’s life will take place on Saturday, May 7, 2022, at Riviera Lanes, 2450 University Ave. from 3:00-7:00 pm.
