Terry L. Borum, age 59, of Lombard

Written by Brust Funeral Home on December 6th, 2018

Borum-TerryTerry L. Borum, age 59 of Lombard, passed away Nov 21st at his home.

A Memorial Gathering will be held Monday, December 10, from 3-8 PM at Brust Funeral Home, 135 S. Main Street in Lombard.

Terry is survived by his mother, Judy Kohout; his sister Donna and her husband, Ray Didier; his nieces J’nae & Amanda; and his younger brother Scott.

Terry loved the outdoors, he was big on camping and had a passion for riding.  He wasn’t much into the current technology that most survive on.  He didn’t own a computer, nor did he care about the most current smart phone, he was fine using a simple cell phone, not even a flip phone.

Terry enjoyed living his life, doing what he wanted – when he wanted to do it – he was a bachelor to the end.  What he loved most dearly was his dogs; they were, for him, his children and went most everywhere with him.  His passing at 59 was quite sudden & unexpected.  RIP Terry, I hope Mack is by your side once again.

Michael S. Bovy, age 63, of Addison

Written by Brust Funeral Home on November 29th, 2018

Michael S. Bovy passed the last week of November 2018. He was 63.

Michael was the loving brother of Ann, Mary Jo (Tim), Marc (Jamie), and Jennifer (Jiggs), and niece Kerrianne (Brandon) and nephews Casey (Abby) and George.

Michael was preceded in death by parents Norman (2016) and Jean (1992).

Michael marched to his own drummer, had his quirks, could be trying at times and was very stubborn. (A trait he got from our mother). But he was the brother that was perfect for us. He taught us patience, understanding, acceptance, and diversity.

While Michael enjoyed his solitude, he always enjoyed family gatherings. Even though he would sometimes retreat when the crowd got to be too much for him, he would always welcome your company next to him on the couch to watch TV with him. Michael was not a man of many words, but he always got his point across. He was a smart man and knew a lot. When he spoke there was always something to learn from it.

We will miss him greatly and will cherish our memories that we have.
