James J. Borgo Jr., 75, of Worthington died unexpectedly Sept. 11 at his home.

James Borgo Jr.

A resident of Lenox for much of his life, Jim was born Nov. 7, 1942, in Pittsfield to the late James and Louise Sires Borgo. Jim attended local schools including Lenox High School.

After high school, he worked for several years as a cook at the former Cranwell Preparatory School in Lenox, and later was employed by the Town of Lenox DPW for 22 years. Jim most recently was also a cabulance driver for Berkshire/AMR Ambulance for 15 years.

Jim enjoyed hunting in his younger years and always liked to go fishing, especially with his wife, and attending functions with his beloved family. You could always catch Jim rooting for his favorite New England sports teams, especially the Red Sox. Jim’s dedication and love for his family and friends never went unnoticed. James and his wife, Louise E. Blake, were married June 27, 1987, in Lenox.

Besides his wife of Worthington, and cat Persia, James is survived by his children; Christopher Stanton (Molly Germain) of Hinsdale and Jeffrey Stanton (Shannon) of Earlton, New York; daughters-in-law Lori Stanton and Tammy Stanton; 10 grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; his brothers Donald H. Borgo (Myong N.) of Cape Coral, Florida, and Gerald D. Borgo (Carol) of Lenox; nieces and nephews Kelly L. Streit (Martin), grand-nieces Amanda and Dominique of Pittsfield, Donald H. Borgo Jr., and grand-nephew Justin of Cape Coral, Florida, Lisa Garzone and grand-niece Samantha of Lanesborough, Melissa A. Kruse (Jeremy) and the apple of his eye, grand-nephew Jackson of Nassau, New York, and Jennifer L. Denovellis (Anthony) of Pittsfield. Besides his parents, James was predeceased by his two sons, Timothy Stanton Jr. and Todd Stanton; and his best furry friend, BoBo.

The funeral service for Mr. James John Borgo Jr., will be held Monday, Sept. 17, 2018, at 6 p.m. at the Roche Funeral Home, with Rev. Michael Tuck, rector of Trinity Church in Lenox, officiating. Calling hours will be held from 4 p.m. until the time of service.
