Robert "Bob" Borba Obituary

With great sorrow, we announce the passing of 79-year-old ~ Robert M. Borba. Bob passed away in the comfort of his home in El Nido, CA, surrounded by his family: entering into the gates of heaven on Thursday, September 21, 2023.

Bob was born and raised in the Merced area & spent 47 years working in Agriculture, as a mechanic, salesman and farmer.  In the 1960’s, he started his career as a mechanic at N&S Tractor, then went on to become a tractor salesman for Merced International Tractor. When it came to ag equipment: he could sell it, run it and/or repair it! Above all he was a kind and generous man, who would do anything - for anyone and he will be deeply missed. 

He is survived by his wife of 57-years Leola "Lee" Borba, their two sons: Bobby (Chrys) Borba and Michael (Monica) Borba, all from El Nido, CA. As well as five grandchildren and three great grandchildren.

Please note, there are no services planned at this time. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Should you have any questions, please reach out to the family.
