Raymond Stephen Borus, of Saint Charles, MO, passed away Tuesday, February 16, 2021 at the age of 68.

Raymond retired from Boeing after many years of service, where he worked as an engineer. He was a very proud Notre Dame alumni, where he played sousaphone in the marching band. Raymond enjoyed attending football games all over the country and in Ireland. He was a member and played guitar in the Sceptors band that started in high school and continued with reunions. One time they opened for Bob Seger. Raymond loved music, singing, golfing and spending time with his family and traveling with them. He was a very generous soul, helping all who needed it. Raymond was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Memorials may be made in Raymond's name to the Notre Dame Marching Band.

Visitation will be conducted for Mr. and Mrs. Borus together as well as a joined funeral mass to celebrate their 44 years of marriage.

    candle 3So sorry to hear of Ray and Diana’s passing. I met Ray at Notre Dame when we played in the Band. I played sax and he was one of the Awesome Basses. He was a loyal son of Notre Dame and especially loved the Band. It was always fun to see him a the Band’s Reunion. We’ll keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

    candle 5I will always cherish our youthful memories…the many family events of christenings, graduations, weddings, births & even the unfortunate funerals. You were the sweetest of kids, not a mean bone in your body. Your parents (my Godparents) were so proud of you. You gave your all to everyone, Diana, children, grandchildren, great grandchildren. Your commitments to your support of your schools, North Catholic, Norte Dame, never waned. Everyone who knew you is the better for it. Your faith was strong. God bless you in this new journey, along with Diana. You will be in my heart forever. Love, Sissy

      candle 5My deepest sympathy to Ray’s family. Ray was a senior when I was a freshman in the Notre Dame Band. He was so kind and respectful. He was such an enthusiastic Bass player, and I will remember him fondly from our BAND Reunions. My sister Rosemary played with him in the Basses section. He will be sorely missed at our next Reunion.

    candle 6I am so sorry for your loss. Your parents were such wonderful, generous people. I loved spending time at your house as a child. You parents never seemed to mind the consecutive sleep over records Tricia and I used to set. I am praying that all of you are sustained with wonderful memories as you mourn their great loss.

    candle 8Such a sad loss. He was the most amazing father in law anyone could ever wish for.
    A kind, generous, loving and giving man, he will be sadly missed by all who knew and
    loved him.

      candle 2I am so sorry for you loss. Ray was a true friend and great teammate. I am so very sorry for your loss of a truly great person and engineer. We worked together for more than 20 years at Boeing. Trully a great person. He will be missed. Just know he is in a great place.

    candle 3Ray was a gentle soul and a great friend. He was always fun to be around — He played ukulele in a little goofy band of “‘Dem Poem Singers” we put together in Farley Hall at Notre Dame. We just all reconnected on ZOOM back in the fall before and after ND games. Devastated to hear this. Prayers and hugs for the Borus family.

    candle 3Deeply saddened by this news. I was a Farley Hall mate, bonded by our Pittsburgh roots (Ray never lost that Pittsburgh accent despite his many moves since). Enjoyed reconnecting via Zoom last fall with other Farleyites before or after Notre Dame games – we never talked about the game, but reminisced and told tales (all true) of our adventures and misadventures. Ray regaled us in stories about his Pittsburgh cab driver days (his summer job while in college, and was especially engaged with the Notre Dame Band alumni. RIP Ray and Diana. Prayers for your wonderful family.
