Bradley Borden

March 20, 1958 — July 24, 2022

On Sunday, July 24, 2022, Bradley Stuart “Brad” Borden, loving son, brother, husband, friend, and father, passed away at 64.
Brad was born on March 20, 1958, in Houston, TX, to Joseph and Beverly (Schwartz) Borden. A Bellaire Senior High School and Menlo College graduate, Brad attended The University of Texas in Austin. Brad went on to be a successful salesman. He was the kind of guy who could sell ice to an Eskimo. He specialized in bottling products, whether it be plastics or glass.  On August 13, 2017, he married his loving wife, Cathy. While they had met when they were 15 years old in BBYO (B'nai Brith Youth Organization), they had just been friends for life. Brad was blessed to have several others that he remained close to from elementary school age on.
In his free time, Brad enjoyed traveling and going on hikes with his favorite travel companion, his sister Valerie. He was an avid sports fan from the couch and the sidelines. Brad earned the nickname “Bad Brad” from his high school antics that he continued throughout his life. He was very proud of this and made a point to tell the nurses and doctors who took care of him in his final years. He loved nature; being outside was one of his favorite things. Whether you were a two-legged friend or a four-legged friend, Brad always made sure his friends knew they were unique and held a special place in his heart. He had a sense of humor that was one of a kind, and he was the type of person who never knew a stranger. Brad enjoyed reading and watching scary movies, classic television shows, and movies. Still, nothing made him happier than watching Star Trek: The Next Generation so he could take pride in his cousin.
Brad was preceded in death by his father, Joseph. He is survived by his mother Beverly Borden, stepmother Mildred Borden, his sister Valerie Burman (Darryl), his daughter Ashley Solano (Elias), his wife Cathy and her daughters Sarah Kronman (Michael) and Katelyn Shelley (Cody Myers), and several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins. Brad was a loving Pop Pops to his three grandchildren, Liam, Aaron, and Gabriella. He had an extraordinary relationship with his Aunt, Sylvia Mintzer.
The family would like to give a special thanks to his many loving caregivers, especially Wanda Wiltz, over the years, including all of the doctors and professionals from the Memorial Hermann hospitals and TIRR rehab facilities who cared for him as if he was their own.
The family requests that any donations be made in his name to either the Astro’s Foundation,
or the Chester Marcus Campership Fund at Congregation Emanu El,
A Funeral Service will be held in the Kagan-Rudy Chapel in Emanu El Memorial Park, 8341 Bissonnet St, Houston, TX 77074 starting at 10am. Rabbis Roy A. Walter and Josh Fixler with Cantor Rollin Simmons will officiate.
