It grieves me to announce the death of our fellow shipmate and good friend, Captain Charles Borgstrom. A short while ago, Captain Borgstrom's daughter Carole called me with the sad news. He died at approximately 1815 hours EST on 2 July 2001 after being in a coma since last Friday. I informed both Carole and Mrs. Betty Borgstrom that I would be notifying all those for whom I have an e-mail address. Carole requested that I provide all of you with her e-mail address. It is:

Today our country lost an outstanding Naval Officer, a highly respected civic leader and a great human being. We all lost a good friend.
