Donald Borho, 89, of Langdon, ND, passed away Friday, August 11, 2017, at Cavalier County Memorial Hospital in Langdon, ND.
Donald was born September 2, 1927, to Albert and Delina (Beaulieu) Borho in Langdon. He grew up and attended school in the Langdon area, graduating in 1946 from St. Alphonsus. Don and Doris Schneider were united in marriage on August 1, 1951 in Mt. Carmel, ND. In 1952, Don entered the US Army where he served in Okinawa until 1954 when he was honorably discharged. Don and Doris raised their family and farmed the Heapy farm south of Langdon. Don also worked for the Corps of Engineering as a surveyor, hauled government grain, blew snow for many years with the plow custom built by Richard Otto, and was a custom harvester for 30+ years. In 1997, he and Doris moved to Langdon. He was a true steward of the land, and although he worked hard and long, it was a labor of love. Don was still actively engaged in farming and went to the farm almost daily year round. He enjoyed golfing, gardening and always had some project going on. Don was a member of St. Alphonsus Catholic Church, Knights of Columbus, Langdon Eagles Aerie #3454, American Legion, and Langdon Country Club.
Surviving Donald are his wife, Doris, of Langdon; children: David (Glenna) of Pratt, KS, Marsha (Jack) Burmaster of North Oaks, MN, Kenny of Langdon, and Lisa Buchweitz of Langdon; grandchildren: Kris (Jennifer) Loewen, Kelly Loewen, Bret Borho, Cale (fiance Desirae Stanton) Borho, Anne Burmaster, Mike (Steph) Burcusa, Morgan (Jesse) Zeis, and Mitch Buchweitz; great-grandchildren: Morgan, Marnee, Nadine, Rose, Dekker, and Grady; and brother Ray (Marilyn) Borho of Langdon. He was preceded in death by his parents, son Steven, son-in-law Dean Buchweitz, granddaughter Brooke, and great-grandson Teagan.
