Richard L. Born


Richard L. Born, 78, retired president of a truck body manufacturing and repair company, died Tuesday at his Woodbrook-area home of cancer.

A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. tomorrow in the chapel of the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer, Charles Street and Melrose Avenue.

Mr. Born retired last summer as president of Herman Born and Sons, which had been started in 1852 as a carriage- and wagon-building firm by his great-grandfather.

With the company since 1936, he was vice president and general manager from 1940 until the death of his father in 1975.

Born in Baltimore, he was a graduate of Friends School and, in 1936, of Syracuse University.

Survivors include his wife of 53 years, the former Kathryn Wilson; a daughter, Nancy Born Edwards of Columbus, Ohio; a son, Richard W. Born of Baltimore; and a sister, Elizabeth Born Little of Burlington, Vt.

The family said memorial contributions could be made to the home-care program of Stella Maris Hospice.
