Raymond Borello

WILMINGTON—Raymond “Wayne” Borello, “Mr. Nice Guy,” 85, of Wilmington, passed away peacefully, Friday, Nov. 22, 2019 at his home surrounded by his loving family. Born June 4, 1934 in Lockport, IL, he was the son of Michael and Mary (nee Cornale) Borello. Wayne worked for Lotz Sign Company for over 20 years and eventually retired in 1999 from Adler Roofing in Joliet. He was a member of the St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church in Wilmington and also was a member of the Moose Lodge #241 where he was the maintenance man. He had many hobbies such as gardening and fishing on the river, but most importantly he loved spending time with his family and sharing stories of when he was younger to his grandchildren.
Surviving are five children: Steve (Bernie) Borello, of Georgia; Lori (Dave) Pierce, of Lockport; Joe Borello, of Joliet; Suzi (Rich) Friddle and Mike Borello, all of Braidwood; 11 grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephews and his extended family, Tina, Katie, and Jennifer.
Preceding him in death were his parents, former wife, Bobbie (nee Lee) Borello, who passed away in 1994. He was married to her for over 40 years and his girlfriend, Janet Perry, who passed away in 2015 after being together for 16 years; two brothers, Leo and Tony “Juney” Borello; niece, Dena (nee Borello) Renwick and his four-legged buddy, Felix.
The family would like to thank Joliet Area Community Hospice for their compassion and support and also Rita Stall who came to us when we needed her the most.
