Through all his endeavors he was always known for his caring generosity and sense of fairness. Along his journey with us here he made many life-long friends.

BORGAARD, KENT  
KENT BORGAARD John "Kent" Borgaard, of Las Vegas, passed away Feb. 22, 2015. J. Kent Borgaard was born Feb. 11, 1929, to Ray and Ethyl Borgaard. Surviving him in life are his wife, Mary G. Borgaard; and his brother, Weldon Borgaard of Cheyenne, Wyo. Kent married Mary (nee Goodson) Borgaard in 1950 and together they raised four children, Barbara Strahl (Al), Boni Moretti (Robert), Jay Borgaard and Dave Borgaard (Kristie). He also has 14 grandchildren; 19 great-grandchildren; and five great-great-grandchildren. Kent served in the Korean War in the U.S. Navy on the USS Boxer and the USS Princeton. He worked many different jobs providing for his family as he attended the seminary to become a pastor as his father had been. Through the years, his pastoral services took him to Pleasantville, Iowa, Sioux Falls, S.D., Des Moines, Iowa, Elkhart, Ind., and Las Vegas. He was an avid writer and published two books. He counseled married couples through his work at Oaklawn Center in Indiana in his "Recovery of Hope" program. He helped people through AA and addictions. He was the ear that everyone and anyone could bend and he'd listen intently. Kent was a man of little needs, a good sunset, a glass of wine with friends and he was content. He often said, "leave the world a better place than you found it and the rest will work itsellf out." He was the messenger of hope and joy. He will always be pictured by his family rising from his bed in the dark because the words in his mind had finally put themselves together, in a way that had danced ahead of his consciousness during the waking hours. Careful not to disturb the household, he fumbled in the twilight for his glasses and tiptoed to his office to write it all down. His words were always eloquent and flowed through him to his writings that he loved to share with the world. He was the "bridge over troubled" water to everyone he ever knew Memorial service will be at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 1, at First Christian Church, 101 S. Rancho Drive, Las Vegas, NV 89106. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to, Vegas PBS, 3050 E. Flamingo Road, Las Vegas, NV 89121.

CHESNOFF, RICHARD  
RICHARD CHESNOFF Richard Z. Chesnoff, born June 4, 1937, passed away Saturday morning, Feb. 21, in Riverdale, N.Y., following a brief illness. He was 77. Mr. Chesnoff was widely regarded as one of the most respected and knowledgeable journalists covering the Middle East. Early in his career he was a reporter for NBC News and the International Herald Tribune, before becoming the bureau chief in Paris for Newsweek. After returning to the United States, he served as the executive editor of Newsweek International and later was the senior correspondent for US News & World Report covering the Middle East. He was the winner of several Overseas Press Club Awards for his Middle East coverage, and wrote for the Daily News. He regularly appeared on CNN and Fox News. He spent many years in the Philippines as the honored guest of President Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos, later becoming the first reporter to interview Col. Muammar Gaddafi after President Reagan bombed Libya in 1986. He was the author of several well-received books, including, "If Israel Lost The War" with Ed Klein and Robert Littell, "Philippines, Pack of Thieves" and "The Arrogance of the French." The last one ironic only because Mr. Chesnoff was a passionate Francophile, and lived in France for many years, first in Paris, and later renovating a medieval stone house in the ancient village of Saint-Siffret, in the Gard region of southern France. Mr. Chesnoff was a raconteur, bon vivant, music and theater-lover; he loved beautiful things, and filled his New York apartment with collections, from paintings, to birdcages, to antique Santos statues, lovingly curated from all over the world. A Renaissance man, he spoke English, French, Hebrew and Yiddish, attending the Hebrew University at age 18, which led to a lifelong love of Israel. He was a contributor to the Hebrew University and the Metropolitan Opera, and punctuated his life with gusto and laughter, loving nothing more than entertaining people with his encyclopedic knowledge of Jewish jokes, which led to him performing as part of Old Jews Telling Jokes. The son of Lewis and Martha Chesnoff of Paterson, N.J., Mr. Chesnoff is survived by his brothers, Robert and David Chesnoff; sisters-in-law, Mimi Zeltner and Diana Chesnoff; son, Adam Chesnoff; daughter-in-law, Lissa; grandchildren, Benjamin and Nathaniel; stepson, Ian; daughter-in-law, Jane Green, grandchildren, Max, Henri, Harry, Tabitha, Nate and Jasper; stepson, Paul Warburg; daughter-in-law, Shannon; and grandchildren, Ella and Honor. Services were held Monday, Feb. 23, at the Riverside Memorial Chapel in New York City. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in Mr. Chesnoff's memory to The American Friends of the Hebrew University, One Battery Park Plaza, 25th Floor, New York, NY 10004, (212) 607-8500 or (800) 567-AFHU.
