We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Dahlborg-MacNevin Funeral Home
Zachary Christopher Borges, age 16, passed away tragically at his home in Middleborough, MA, on July 11, 2022. Zach was born in Fall River, MA, on January 26, 2006, and was the son of Nathan Borges of Middleboro, MA, and Kayla (Conlon) Silva of Swansea, MA. Zachary was a student at Middleborough High School, class of 2024, and was looking to further his schooling in art and graphic art design.
Anyone who knew Zachary would tell you he had the biggest heart, and his smile could brighten a room. Zach was always listening to music, no matter what he was doing. In his free time, he loved to draw anime, sketch characters as well as write stories to go along with his comics. He would write music, play basketball and football during the day, then video games at night with friends. He loved to go on walks outside, ride his bike through the neighborhood, and play with his dogs, Bentley, and Zeus. But most of all he loved spending time with his family and friends. He was a loving son, great big brother, caring grandson, loyal cousin, fun loving nephew, and a best friend to a special few. Zachary will be deeply missed and have a special place in our hearts forever.
He is survived by his dad Nathan Borges and “sugamama” Brittny Borges of Middleborough, siblings Lilly, Landon, Lila, and Laney Borges of Middleborough, Jordan, and Ryan Silva of Swansea, as well as his baby brother on the way, Leo Borges. His great grandparents Michael “Gramps” Dunphe of Taunton, Joan and Arthur Keaney “GG & Pa” of Middleborough, grandparents Natalie DeSousa of Westport, Rita Conlon and Wardell Braxton of Fall River, Anthony “TJ” and Lisa Keaney of Middleborough, Manuel and Mary Silva of Westport, uncle Justin Borges and his wife Jessica of Dighton, Aunt Kaitlin Conlon of Fall River, as well as many other loving aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Zach was predeceased by his great grandmother Ellie Dunphe, and Grandfather Gerald “Jay” Borges.
