Matthew John Borgerson, 60, of Long Beach, California, passed away Friday, April 7, in Long Beach, where a celebration of life will be held at a later date.
Borgerson was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan, on March 14, 1957. He attended Grant Union High School and continued his education at Blue Mountain Community College and Portland Community College. For most of his life, he owned and operated Crown Cleaners in Huntington Beach, California, and later, Nautica Cleaners in Seal Beach, California.
He was dedicated in helping those less fortunate and was endlessly volunteering to assist his friends, neighbors and his church. He was fond of boating and treasured the ocean view from his window.
Borgerson is survived by his father, John L. Borgerson, of Walla Walla, Washington; and sisters Jannae Nichols of Newport Beach, California, Judi Seaver of San Diego, California, and Amy Kreger of Long Creek; brother Bob Knowles of Virginia Beach, Virginia; and numerous nieces and nephews, all of whom he was very proud of. He was preceded in death by his mother, Dorothy Borgerson, and sister Lynda Borgerson Knowles.
Memorial contributions may be made in the manner of random acts of kindness to someone less fortunate, for that is what mattered most to Borgerson.
