Dan Dennis Bordner, born September 17, 1945, passed away Wednesday April 28, 2021 at Frye Regional Medical Center. He was the son of Charles A. and Frances J. Eye and Elmer Franklin Bordner. Danny, as he was known, lived in Vale, NC. He is survived by his wife, Gail Bordner, as well as daughters Terri Miller and her husband Nathan; Lorissa K Vines and her husband David; and son Wesley Kale and his wife Rebekah. He is also survived by grandchildren Christopher Miller, Daniel Miller, Eden Miller, and Cameron Kale; siblings Deborah Eye, Jeanne Bordner Cherrington Smith and husband Randy, Jerry Bordner and wife Shirley, Edee Morrison, and Jeff Bordner; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins all over the United States.

Danny was a 1963 graduate of West Henderson High School in Hendersonville, NC. He studied music at Western Carolina University and radio broadcasting and production at Atlanta School of Broadcasting.

Danny’s career was varied. He began as a radio broadcaster in Granite Falls, NC and then moved on to WIRC and WSPF in Hickory, NC where he won awards for commercial copy writing. He owned and operated “The Craft Shop” in Hendersonville, NC. He also worked for Wilsonart, Dixie Boatworks, and finally Quaker Furniture (Studio Q), where he was a CNC Router programmer until his retirement.

Just as Danny’s career talents were many, so were his interests. He enjoyed landscape painting, fishing, reading, and music. He was a member of Balls Creek, Bassmaster’s Club, often using his broadcasting skills to Emcee special events. He was a talented drummer and singer, and was a member of several performing bands over his lifetime. His first band, The Way Mates, published two records and toured the East Coast in 1962 and 1963. Up until his death, Danny was a beloved member of The Mountain Grove Baptist Church Praise Team, a service that brought him much joy and fulfillment.

Danny was a loving husband, brother, father, and grandfather. He had a welcoming smile and humorous spirit that instantly put people at ease. Despite a myriad of health problems that followed him throughout his life, Danny worked hard, lived fully, and loved selflessly. His legacy is one of laughter, love, and a life well-lived.

There will be no visitation or memorial service at this time. However, the family is planning a Celebration of Life for a later date in 2021. Those who would like to honor his memory can make donation to Carolina Caring,, in Danny’s name

We were sad to learn of Dan's passing. He was my neighbor for many years. We also went to church together.
He was a very good man. We will miss him. We will be praying for you Gail and the rest of the family. We know you
will miss him also. He is in good hands with God. Now he has good health. Love Claude & Sylvia Wilson
