Carlton J. Bordis, age 99 of Ormond Beach, Fl, passed away on April 4, 2019. He will be remembered by most who knew him as a gentleman, and a gentle man. Carl was born in Johnstown on November 1, 1919 to the late William and Ella Bordis. He married Muriel Schumann in 1942 and had 3 sons, Jack, James and William.
He enlisted in the United States Navy during WWII serving our country on the USS Topeka.
He worked most of his working life at The Johnstown Knitting Mill Co. in Johnstown, NY starting out as a sewing machine mechanic and working his way up to Production Manager, and eventually as plant manager for 2 sister locations.
Carl was an avid carver, carving and painting his carvings during his retirement was a great source of relaxation for him. He could often be found sitting in the Florida sun whittling away on his latest project.

Daughter-in-law Anne Marie Bordis, Step children Richard Henderson (Sally) of N. Tonawanda, NY, Jane Delair (Mike) Homer NY, Catherine Camardello (Thomas) of West Monroe, N.Y .
