Camp David is named after Tom’s work mentor, Dave Borrow.

David A. Borrow was born on March 20, 1930, son of William H. and Ella Binsley Borrow. He was orphaned by his parents at age 3 when they both passed away. Fortunately, his maternal grandparents took him in and raised him as their own.

Upon graduation from high school, David earned a football scholarship to Youngstown State University. Subsequent to his college graduation, he entered the military intelligence during the Korean War.  

With his return to civilian life, he completed a Master’s degree at Kent State University and began a career in education. He taught school and later became a school principal before joining Ginn and Company, a division of Xerox.  David’s work in sales led to assignments in Boston, Chicago, Dallas, and Atlanta where he retired in 1980 as Senior Vice President.

The Borrow family determined that the corporate life of travel and relocation should be replaced by a family business. At age 53, the McDonald’s Corporation made David’s family dream a reality by making a franchise available in Cornelia, Georgia.

David passed away in 2003, twenty years after they started their family business with a McDonalds franchise. The family owned 7 restaurants at the time of David’s death.  His wife Sandy, son John (Mayor of Cornelia, GA) and daughters Susan Nichols and Becky Roy have carried on their families dream and their fathers legacy by growing with several more McDonalds restaurants.  

David was an excellent teacher and believed in the value of education and had great pride in his former employees who went on to become doctors, lawyers, teachers and business people. He was instrumental in locating the North Georgia Youth and Science Technology Center to Habersham County. He served several terms as a member of the Pioneer RESA Board.

Throughout his life, David was active in community service. He served as President of the Habersham County Chamber of Commerce, President of the Habersham County United Way, and President of the Habersham County Rotary Club. He also served on the Board of Directors of Community Bank and Trust, the Board of the Tabor Automotive Group in Toccoa and Board of Directors of Financial Supermarkets, Inc.  

Since becoming a McDonald’s owner/operator, he has been active in the franchise group. He has held positions of leadership at the National, Divisional and Regional levels.

As an avid golfer, David was a charter member of the Country Club of the South. He was also a member of the Cornelia United Methodist Church.

David grew from an orphan to a college student to a military man to a family man to an educator and finally a business and community leader. Many have said that he never met a stranger. His life on this earth, gives hope to those who say their life circumstances keep them from achieving their dreams.

“At a time when my father left us and I didn’t know what life would hold for someone like me, he certainly made a difference in my life.” – Thomas Matthew Fritz

“He was the most enthusiastic and positive thinking person, I’ve ever known.” – Sandy Borrow
