Carl Bornfriend of Frisco, September 5

By on September 9, 2019

On September 5, 2019, Carl Bornfriend (1931-2019), beloved husband and father, transitioned from this world. Born in Philadelphia, he lived in Frisco, NC for the last 35 years of his life.  Daughter, Susan Bornfriend Roughton preceded him, and he is survived by loving wife, Joyce Bornfriend, and devoted daughter, Annie Bornfriend Lawlor.

As a life-long educator, he left a legacy of amazing achievements:   teacher—with students from pre-school to 90 +, founder of the Frisco Native American Museum, scout master, coach, volunteer fireman, community service volunteer, conservation and environmental champion, innovator, trail blazer, and loyal friend.   With a determination to live every minute as fully as possible, he gave unselfishly of his immeasurable love, wisdom, and creativity.  His reverence for every living being underscored each step of his remarkable journey, and he touched thousands of people over the course of his life, leaving positive imprints that will echo through time.

It came as no surprise to those who knew him that he departed on the winds of a hurricane, leaving as dramatically and passionately as he lived, leaving a void that cannot be filled.

The family requests that in lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to the Frisco Native American Museum & Natural History Center. Plans for a service will be announced in the near future.

Condolences to the family may be expressed via the online register at Gallop Funeral Services, Inc. was entrusted with arrangements.
