David Gordon Borgen passed away on Monday, January 4, 2021. David is survived by his children, Marty (Patricia), Diane Grant (Richard), Kirsten Pulver (Dan), Mary Poffenbarger (Patrick), Eric (Jennifer), whom he shared with former spouse Laura Borgen; 10 grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great-grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his parents Ernest and Marguerite, and his former spouse Laura.

David, son of Ernest and Marguerite Borgen, was born July 1, 1935, in Des Moines. He was a 1953 graduate of Dowling High School and a 1957 graduate of Creighton University. He served in the U. S. Army from 1957 through 1963, achieving the rank of Captain.

After the Army, he worked at the Des Moines Register as an advertising copy-writer, then joined his father in an independent insurance agency. Throughout this time he also worked as a dispatcher for the Polk County Sherriff’s Department and competed in their marksmanship competitions. One activity that brought him, and others, hours of enjoyment was his purchase of Investment Brokers Lounge at 10th and Grand in the mid-’80s.

Private graveside services will be held at the Iowa Veterans Cemetery at a later date.
