DOUGLAS ALLEN BORK was born on July 21, 1961 to Orville and Barbara (Bruxvoort) Bork in Luverne, Minnesota. He was the oldest of four children and spent his childhood years with his family on various farms throughout Rock County. From the time he was born, Doug was full of mischief and adventure. He was baptized at Luverne Christian Reformed Church, attended grades K-8 at Hills-Beaver Creek School and then graduated high school from Southwest Christian in Edgerton with the class of 1979. Doug helped farm for a few years and then in 1982 embarked on a road trip to California with friends that ended up lasting over a year and a half and included him working on a dairy farm. Doug returned to the family farm between Luverne and Beaver Creek in 1982 and started farming. He later bought his own acreage nearby the home place of Orv and Barb’s and farmed. On April 4, 1992 he was united in marriage to Marcia Swank in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The couple settled into life on Doug’s acreage. In addition to farming, Doug worked for 12 years in real estate with Town & Country and Keller Williams Realty in Brandon, South Dakota and 4 years until the present as a dispatcher for Blachowske. On February 28, 2021, Doug died unexpectedly at his home at the age of 59 years, 7 months and 7 days.

Doug had a love of the outdoors and horses from old time farming to homestead days – you could find him bareback riding or taking trail rides and buggy rides. He enjoyed going to the “Point” for camping, fishing, bowling, playing darts, studying history and ancestry as well as stopping in to browse at antique stores. Doug loved to Christmas shop for his nieces and nephews. Doug was always loved and respected – he had the most caring heart and was there to help whenever needed.

Doug is lovingly remembered by his wife, Marci of Beaver Creek; children, James Swank of San Diego, California and Eric (Elizabeth) Bork of Rockport, Texas; his parents, Orv and Barb Bork of Luverne; siblings, Wendy (Patrick) Hathaway of Storm Lake, Iowa and Nicholas (Annie) Bork of Luverne, Minnesota; sister-in-law, Mary (Randy) Bork-Sawyer of Story, Wyoming; and other family. He was preceded in death by his brother, Brian Bork; and grandparents.
