Ruben Gerhardt "Chip"  Bork
Ruben Gerhardt "Chip" Bork was called home to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Saturday, June 24, 2017. He passed on peacefully and quietly in his sleep at his home in Security, Colorado, as he often stated was his desire when his time has come. Chip was born November 12, 1921 in Big Falls, Waupaca County, Wisconsin, the eldest of 10 children born to Edward J. Bork and Laura Mundt. He married Marjorie Lorene Lalumandier Schafer on March 27, 1944 at Harding Army Air Field, Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He was a P-47 Fighter Pilot in Europe during WWII. He was shot down and lost his left arm near St. Lo, France, and became a POW. He received the Purple Heart, WWII Victory Medal, European Theater of Operations with 2 Bronze Stars, Air Medal with 1 Oak Leaf Cluster, POW Medal and the French Jubilee of Liberty Medal. After the war, he worked many different jobs, but eventually ended up serving more than 23 years in Civil Service for the Air Force. Chip is survived by his 3 sons: Ronald (Laurilee) Bork of Willamina, Oregon; Eddie (Dow) Bork of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; and Douglas (Bonnie) Bork of San Antonio, Texas. Brothers: Gerret Bork of Shawano, Wisconsin; Armin Bork of Antigo, Wisconsin; and Hubert "Gus" Bork of Bowler, Wisconsin. Sister: Bernice Bork Begrow of Tigerton, Wisconsin; 13 Grandchildren, 20 Great-Grandchildren, and his little canine companion Trixie. He was preceded in death by his wife, Marjorie, his parents Edward and Laura, and his brothers Lawrence, Melvin, Burton, Edward and Vernon. A visitation will be held at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, July 1, 2017 followed by the funeral service at 10:00 a.m. at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 325 Putnam Drive, Security, Colorado 80911. Interment will be at Fort Logan National Cemetery in Denver, Colorado
