Keith A. Bordner, 53, Sunbury

SUNBURY — Keith A. Bordner, 53, of 1005 Penn St., died in his home on Tuesday, March 12, 2013.

He was born Jan. 28, 1960, in Sunbury, the son of Galen E. Bordner, of Shamokin Dam, and the late Marcella J. (Wagner) Bordner. On Oct. 24, 1981, he married the former Debora M. Rogers, who survives.
