Steve Bors died Monday, February 7, 2022, at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick. He was 89.
Born in Csót, Hungary to the late Sandor and Elizabeth (Butka) Bors, he immigrated to the United States during the Hungarian Revolution in 1956. He lived in New Brunswick before coming to North Brunswick 45 years ago. He worked as a plumber in the building maintenance department of Rutgers Community Health Plan in New Brunswick for 15 years before retiring in 1995. He also owned and operated Dari Delite on Hamilton Street in Somerset during the 1970s and 1980s.
Mr. Bors was a proud Hungarian who was an equally proud and patriotic American. Known for his charming blue eyes and his Shangri-La gardens, he enjoyed summers in Sea Isle City, his grandchildren, animals and his fish pond. He was a master tradesman who could fix anything (physically or emotionally) and he loved to do that for friends and family alike.
He was a communicant of St. Ladislaus R.C. Church in New Brunswick and was a member of the Hungarian American Athletic Club in New Brunswick.
His wife Maria (Schrantz) Bors died in 2004. Surviving are his son Steven Bors and his wife Jeaneen of Bethlehem; his daughter Sylvia Bors of Frenchtown and her husband Key Wilde; his sister Angela Somogyi of North Brunswick; and four grandchildren – Ilona, Alex, Audrey and Liam.
