We lost Payton Douglas Borden on October 31, 2022. Payton was born September 27, 2007 in St. Paul, Minnesota. He was the shining light in his family with a smile that never ended. Even when he was in trouble, that nervous smile never faded, it often got bigger. His sarcasm was point on, and if you didn’t get it then it was your loss; his humor was unmatched. His siblings and nephews looked up to him and he loved this the most. Payton had the biggest heart and was always helpful to family, friends, and strangers. He loved his family and is loved greatly by them.
Payton loved to train hunting dogs and really excelled at it, he was a natural with the dogs. He would seldom have to be asked to help as he jumped in on his own to help run the family’s hunting and shooting preserve. He couldn’t get enough of hunting whatever was in season. He looked forward to big game hunting with his family more than anything. Payton was attending Natrona County High school as a 9th grader this year and was part of the football team, ROTC Rifle team and Raider team. He leaves behind many friends and relatives that will surely grieve his absence. His desire was to join the Marines after he completed high school.
