Chester “Chet” Dale Borror

Chester “Chet” Dale Borror was born in Corning, CA, Sept. 22, 1957, and died July 12, 2011, at his home on Tehama Angus Ranch in Gerber, CA. He was educated in Gerber, Red Bluff and U.C.Davis. Upon graduation, he worked for Kraft Foods in Chicago, IL, in food engineering. He enjoyed working with his hands, constructing stone walls at the Chalk Mountain Ranch in Bridgeville, CA, and building his home on Holmes Road. He enjoyed designing and building many ranch signs and gates, building firewood processing machinery, and designing and building furniture.

Chet developed a special bond with animals under duress—providing a home for stray dogs and working and providing support for Safe Haven Horse Rescue. He is survived by his special friend, Catherine Cadieux; his parents, Bill and Sandy Borror of Tehama; brother Kevin (Linda) and Eric of Gerber, brother Aaron (Rebecca) of Terrebonne, OR; sister, Alda of Miyazaki, Japan; and nieces, Callie Borror, Rochelle Borror and nephew Bryce Borror. A celebration of his life was held July 23 followed by a potluck at the ranch. Chet would request any gifts be made to Safe Haven Horse Rescue.
