Cal Borman died December 21, 2014 at his home in Aumsville, OR. The former Eagle Web Press sales manager retired in 2010 after a long career in the printing business. He came to Salem in 1971 to work at Denny Smith’s new printing company, BME Web Press, the birthplace of Eagle Web Press.
Cal had been in ill health in recent years. No service was held, but his wife, Kathi, plans a ‘Celebration of Life’ in early summer, depending on when their daughter can be home.
In addition to his wife, he is survived by his daughter, Nikki, grandsons, Brady and Bentley; granddaughter Bailey and his brother, Wayne.
In spite of his health problems, during his retirement Cal worked around their acreage “pretty much a full time job” according to Kathi. He often lunched with friends and the couple took a few short trips.
Cal was born in Enterprise, Oregon, September,1942. He was beginning seventh grade, when his family moved to Pendleton, and he graduated from Pendleton high school in 1961. In 1959 he started his printing career at the East Oregonian.
The Eagle Newspapers family will miss Cal!
