In following his wishes, cremation has taken place and a private burial will take place in the spring of 2020 at Burr Oak Cemetery. Cremation services were provided by Dutcher Funeral Home.

Butch was born February 1, 1939 to Homer and Josephine (Wagner) Borgert in Kalamazoo. He graduated from Bronson High School and then took a year of college at Tri State University. On July 16, 1960 he married the love of his life, Susan “Susie” Cluff at the Congregational Church in Bronson. Butch worked for 32 years at Quality Springs as a tool & die maker, retiring in 1998. He then started his own business, R & S Reels in 1999. Butch sold the business in 2018.

Butch has attended the Congregational Church while growing up. He was a member of the Bronson Kiwanis Club for over 30 years. Butch was an avid fisherman, including repairing fishing reels. Bronson Reels were his specialty. His true joy in life was spending time with family and friends.
