Bishop Borsch Dies at 81

From The Living Church-

Bob Williams reports on the death of the Rt. Rev. Frederick Houk Borsch, fifth Bishop of Los Angeles, on April 11:

The Rt. Rev. Frederick Houk Borsch — whose 1988-2002 tenure as bishop of the six-county Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles was marked by his theme of “Adelante: Forward Together” — died in his sleep April 11 at his Philadelphia home. He was 81 and succumbed to complications of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), a blood cancer, for which he began treatment last fall.

He is survived by Barbara S. Borsch — his wife of more than 56 years and an honorary canon of the Diocese of Los Angeles — and by their sons, Benjamin, Matthew and Stuart, daughters-in-law Jeannie, Elizabeth, and Fang Vhang, grandchildren Jack, Emily, Owen and Zoe; by his sister, Jane Borsch Robbins, and by nieces and a nephew and their families.
