Gregory Borck

May 19, 1949 — July 10, 2018

Gregory Thomas Borck, age 69, of Anchorage, AK, passed away in Cumming, GA on July 10, 2018 at 6:30am after a long struggle with cancer. Born on May 19, 1949 in Fort Atkinson, WI, to Norbert and Margaret (Hyde) Borck, and was the oldest of three sons. He is survived by his wife, Vickie Borck; his 5 children Teresa Mata, Jeffrey (m. Kirsten Hochstedt) Borck, Randall (m. Victoria) Borck, Laura (m. Kosta) Gyfteas, and Alexander (m. Danielle) Borck; 2 stepsons Dustin and Grant Jennings; 14 grandchildren; his brother, Gordon (m. Lana) Borck; and countless nieces and nephews; and preceded in death by his parents and his brother Gary Borck. Gregory enlisted in the United States Army which trained him as a firefighter and brought him to Alaska in 1971, which captured his heart and quickly became home. He received an A.A. in Accounting and an A.S. in Fire Science and went on to receive a B.A. in Business Education and a B.S. in Fire Service Administration. He valued hard work, education, and was proud of his three decades of loyal service to the Anchorage Fire Department as a firefighter, an engineer, a captain, a senior captain, an administrator, and a trainer of new recruits before his retirement in 2006. Gregory took pride in his children and grandchildren and loved them very deeply. He enjoyed attending the Alaska State Fair and Fur Rendezvous. He had a strong passion for his faith and an unwavering faithfulness to God. He loved eating good food, enjoyed seeing wildlife in national parks with his wife, and appreciated watching football and baseball for the pure enjoyment of the game. He was always willing to lend a helping hand for others in need. Even when experiencing difficult circumstances in life, he found a way to joke and laugh through it, and always held fast to his faith in Jesus Christ. Though we mourn his loss, we know he rejoices in restored health and vitality with his Savior. A Celebration of Life service will be held on Friday, August 24 at 6pm hosted by Christ Church Fellowship located at 209 3rd Ave W, Carthage, TN. "There's victory in Jesus!" - Greg "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith." -2 Timothy 4:7
