In his own home, on Sunday, July 5, 2020 surrounded by his loving children and caregiver Emma, Romeyn V. Borchardt, 93, of Oak Creek, passed peacefully home to Jesus and is now breathing, walking, running! He was born on April 15, 1927 in Burlington, Wisconsin. Romeyn was the son of LeRoy and Beatrice (NEE: Bennett) Borchardt. He honorably served in the United States Navy during World War II. Romeyn married his love, Lois Multhauf on the beautiful, warm autumn day of October 15, 1953. Romeyn built his own home where he and Lois raised their five children.  He worked as a master electrician and taught code class in his basement to all who wanted to learn.  Romeyn loved animals and nature and especially his own beautiful wooded sanctuary with a multitude of animals and birds. He fished and hunted in his healthy days and loved taking his family to Boulder Junction to camp in a pop up camper. A man of great faith, Romeyn loved to read his Bible and write down and recite his favorite passages. Romeyn touched the lives of all who knew him with his humility and wonderful sense of humor.  He enjoyed the simple riches of life and will be deeply missed by his children Cheryl (Timothy) Dinauer, DuWayne (Evelyn) Borchardt, Clinton Borchardt, Karen (Ken) Gamberini, and Gina (John) Fuhreck, twelve grandchildren, and twenty one great-grandchildren. He is survived by many nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends. A special thanks to Emma, his loving caregiver for the past 6 months, who along with his children, made it possible for him to stay in the home he loved. The family would also like to extend their sincere thanks and gratitude to the angels who helped sustain his life and brought him joy during the many visits:  VA in-home healthcare girls, compassionate care hospice team, and beloved pulmonologist, Dr. Theodore Hubley.  Private services and burial were held per family’s wishes.
