David E. "Tuna" "Charlie" Borger, 65, of Kunkletown, passed away Tuesday, April 21 in his home.

He was the loving son of the late Elmer D. Borger and the late Gladys E. (Kresge) Borger.

David was a member of St. Matthew's UCC in Kunkletown.

He was a trucker driver for Frantz Brothers Trucking for thirty three years. He was involved with racing during most of his life, as he started racing sportsman modified in 1977. His race team with the Smith family that he was part of for so many years was the legendary Triple Nickel 555. Two years into his involvement with his racing team, he took over as the tire man for Terry Sutter. He never missed the races, and he would be at the shop during the week and at the track on the weekends. Amazingly, he never missed work, even if he had to leave with his truck when he got home from the track. His life was consumed by racing much like any dedicated racer. His friendship was just as valuable as his tire expertise. Even when he could barely walk later in his career, he seldom missed helping out in the pits. He was a dedicated life member of the Kunkletown Rod & Gun Club, where he was very involved as an officer and recording secretary. He organized sportsman day events, gun- a-week tickets, and July tickets for the club. He loving hunting, and was part of the skunk hollow hunting gang. He enjoyed being on his tree stand at the farm. He also enjoyed the local block shoots in the area. He was a proud dog owner, and loved all of his dogs he owned throughout his life. He will be deeply missed by all of his friends and family.

He is survived by a sister, Marlene Long and her husband Robert of Kunkletown; a nephew, Jeff Long and his wife Bethany of Kunkletown; an uncle, Gerald Kresge and his wife Bonney of Palmerton; and a great nephew and great niece, Connor and Sadie. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a niece, Melanie Long.

Marlene and family,
I was so sorry to hear David, or as we called him in high school Slim. Plus Charlie or Tuna... Charlie was such a great friend all during our high school days and the friendship continued all through our lives. I remember he was a great pitcher on the high school baseball team and he loved his hunting. He will be missed by me and all of us from the PV Class of '72. Again my condolences to you, Marlene and your entire family.
