Obituary for Edwin William Borter, Jr.

November 26, 1962 - September 6, 2018
McHenry, Illinois | Age 55

Loving Husband, Father, Brother and Friend


It is with great sadness that the Borter family announces his passing on Thursday, September 6, 2018, at the age of 55 years. Edwin will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Diane, and his children, Zach and Tyler. Edwin will also be fondly remembered by his sister, Debbie, and his two brothers, Jeff and Steve. Edwin was predeceased by his brother Greg. Edwin will further be remembered by his daughter-in-laws Alex and Lindsey.

Edwin, known to family and friends as Eddy, was a loving husband and father and an avid Chicago sports fan. Eddy loved rooting on the Bears, Cubs, and Blackhawks. When not spending his time in the McHenry area, Eddy loved being up at his cabin in northern Wisconsin. While spending his time in Wisconsin, Eddy enjoyed riding his ATV, fishing on his boat, and snowmobiling in the winter.

Eddy started Orion Fire Protection with his best friend Wilbur, in the spare bedroom of Wilbur's father's home. From there, they grew the business into the successful company that it is today.

Eddy touched so many lives with his loving nature and humor and was loved and respected by so many.

A celebration of Edwin's life will be held on Wednesday, September 12, 2018, from 2:00 p.m to 6:00 p.m. at Colonial Funeral Home, 591 Ridgeview Dr, McHenry, IL 60050 with a one hour service starting at 6:00 p.m.
