A 2007 Tribute to    Jack Borden

 

  A 1947 charter member, Jack Borden was presented his "60th Year Membership Plaque" by the Parker County Sheriff's Posse on March 5, 2007. Jack was not only a founding member of our organization but also was the author of our original charter and By-laws. The 98 year old attorney has been an inspiration to not only our Sheriff's Posse but to our entire community. We congratulate him and thank him for these many years of service and dedication to the Parker County Sheriff's Posse and Weatherford and Parker County.

  I had the honor and privilege to visit with Jack Borden a few days ago with reference to this website. He is an amazing man, a true
Weatherford icon. Still going to his office each day, practicing law at age 98 and his mind and memory is sharp as a tack. His wit
and stories where just a delight. Not only a Christian, but kind, thoughtful and courteous gentlemen. A true legend, and a generous
unselfish person, giving a helping hand to many for many years. Along with all this, he is a great and respected attorney that I can
attest to from my own experience. Jack I am looking forward to your century birthday.
THANK YOU JACK_______________ Bill Ward
