Irvin J. Borowsky, Founder of North American Publishing Company, Passes at Age 90
"For those of you who didn't know Mr. B, he lived a very accomplished life and left this earth with a legacy that will live on for years to come," said Dave Leskusky, president of NAPCO, in a letter to employees. "I'm not sure if he was a more accomplished entrepreneur or philanthropist but he was great at both. He followed his dreams, worked hard, went where he wanted to go, and lived life on his terms."
Borowsky had been at the cutting edge of interfaith dialogue and biblical research, and a leader in cross-cultural understanding. He edited and published 16 books relating to these issues. In 2014 Drexel University awarded the degree of Doctor of Humane Letters, honoris causa, in recognition of his dedication to education and understanding.
Borowsky's funeral was held Friday.
