Archbishop William Donald Borders, the 13th archbishop of Baltimore, died at 10:03 a.m. Monday at Stella Maris in Timonium. He was 96.
Archbishop Borders confirmed me back in 1987. I only recently learned that he was a World War II veteran who was awarded the Bronze Star with "V" device. I am not surprised though. He was a good man, a selfless shepherd, and he will be missed.
Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon him.
