Joseph went to be with the Lord on Monday, April 29, 2013 at his home in Hanford, California. Joseph was born to Steven & Maria Borba on July 1, 1991 at the Methodist Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was a U.S. Navy child his entire life growing up. Since his father is still proudly serving our country; Joseph was privileged to live in some unique places in the world; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, San Diego, California, Keflavik, Iceland and Hanford, California.

Joseph was raised with his only brother, Thomas "Tom" Borba. They were best friends growing up as anyone could imagine. Together they played and hung out all of the time. Joseph had a German Shepherd named; Buck for 9 years. He was involved during his teenage years in church youth group, while remaining close to God. Joseph had participated in NJROTC (Naval Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps) and completed the program in 2009. He had received numerous awards for his community service; Armed Drill, POW Services and Flag Detail. Joseph graduated from Hanford West High School in 2009. Joseph truly enjoyed his Naval Science class and his favorite teacher was Mr. Caudillo, his History teacher. Some of his favorite things to do were; collecting Pokemon Cards, swimming and building sand castles at the beach.

During Joseph's years in school he became very close to his friends; Korin Cruz who he later married, Lewis Jacobsen, Jose Ruiz, Leo Ruiz, Montana Churchill, Diana Thomas and Leann Jacobsen.

After graduating, Joseph married his high school sweetheart; Korin Cruz on August 21, 2010 at Hidden Valley Park in Hanford, California. Together as they formed their lives they gave birth to their beautiful son; Aiden Joseph Borba, who they cherish...

Joseph had worked as a General Manager in the restaurant business for 3 years at Fattee Albert's in Visalia, California. Since he was truly a "people person" this job suited him perfectly! He was able to interact with many walks of life in his career.

In his spare time he liked gaming and watching football; Philadelphia Eagles and baseball; Philadelphia Phillies. When he could travel he took pleasure in making trips to the beach and mountains where he could ride recreational vehicles & quads and go paint balling.

Joseph lived a full life and will always live in the hearts of those who he touched, he'll never be forgotten, so his legacy will continue to be a memory for his son; Aiden.

Joseph is survived by his loving parents; Steven & Maria Borba, his beloved wife; Korin Borba, his precious son; Aiden Borba and his brother and friend; Tom Borba.
