Bobby Davis Borth, Jr. was born 10/19/62 in LA, CA. After a few months, the family moved to Amarillo, TX, then moved back to CA in 1965.
Growing up, Bobby was an avid follower of Kung Fu and Tai Chi Chuan and worked tirelessly to hone his moves. He and his buddies even earned their Kung Fu Black Sashes together.
Bobby graduated from Van Nuys HS in June, 1980, remaining life-long friends with his former classmates, David Hernandez and Roark Berkey. According to David, Bobby was all about peace and was always ready to calm a situation by quoting from Scripture, Mark 4:39, specifically, “Peace, be still.”
Thereafter, Bobby attended trade school to develop valuable technical
communications skills, which he was able to utilize while subsequently serving in the Missouri National Guard and then the California National
Guard when he moved back to the “Valley.”
After a brief disastrous marriage, Bobby was diagnosed with lupus, a huge game-changer, to say the least. Then, when he was living in Chatsworth, the Northridge earthquake occurred so that he jumped at the opportunity when
his company, Packard Bell, offered to relocate him to Magna, Utah.
During the years that followed, Bobby had to have each hip replaced, due to the effects of the prescribed medications he was having to take. And in July of 2001, he lost his father to suicide.
Bobby worked as long as he could – providing expert technical assistance to customers nationwide in order to maintain his independence until, eventually, he had to give up and move back to California, to live with his mother in Wofford Heights.
In May, Bobby’s health began to deteriorate further when his left knee became enflamed, until he could no longer walk, and it was down-hill from there.
On August 2, 2020, Bobby went to his forever home to be with our Lord Jesus Christ. He leaves behind his kitty, Faedra; mother, Aprille Johnson; Aunt Carol Borth, Aunt Lynn Jarvis; as well as cousins Deborah Jarvis Rivera, Steve and Matthew Jarvis, and other Borth relatives too numerous
to mention and the many friends he has made over the years, in particular,
Rhonda Dee and Catherine Crawford.
