GALENA - Chester A. "Chet "Borsch Jr., 73, Galena, passed away Thursday, July 28, 2011, at Rapid City Regional Hospital.

Chet was born Sept. 22, 1937, to Chester Sr. and Rose (North) Borsch in Deadwood. Throughout his life he enjoyed hiking, fishing, canoeing, and flying. In more recent years, he enjoyed taking vacations, driving the Deadwood Trolley, and spending time with family at his home in Galena.

Chet is survived by his wife of 34 years, Sharon; son, Casey; daughter, Kim (Randy); sister, Geraldine (John) Fahrni; three grandchildren; and a granddog, Maezie.
Chet was preceded in death by his beloved dog, Sabrina, who was waiting to greet him on Rainbow Bridge.
Per Chet's request, no services will be held. In lieu of flowers, the family encourages a donation in Chet's name to the Galena Historical Society, 12077 Galena Road Deadwood, SD 57732.
