Lewis Alan Borgman Jr., 67, born on Feb. 21, 1950, of Eastman, WI died in his home on Wed., Nov. 1, due to myelodysplastic syndrome, a rare disease which went unclassified in him for many years. 


His achievements in life started early, where at the age of 15, he earned his Eagle Scout rank and God and Country award in Boy Scouts. In 1968, after graduation from Holland High School, Mich., he served four years in the U.S. Navy, where he was a torpedo specialist. He earned his black belt in Tae Kwon Do and competed in many triathlons, such as the Ironman Triathlon in Austin, Minn., in 1982, and was champion of the Bicycle Time Trail in Illinois in 1990, where he broke every previous record by almost 10 minutes. He had an amazing sense of humor and was loved by all who had the honor to meet him.


He is survived by his wife, Mannick Borgman; mother, Louise Whitenight; brother, Ed Borgman; and sisters, Cathy Daniel and Sue Bush. 


He was preceded in death by his father, Lewis Alan Borgman Sr.


A small service was held by the family in his honor. A special thanks to Crossing Rivers Health Hospital, Dr. Rogge, and the many nurses at Mayo Clinic. In lieu of flowers, please send memorials to Crossing River Health Hospice, 37868 US-18, Prairie du Chien, WI 53821. Coulee Region Cremation Group is assisting the family.
