N.J. pilot who died in Holland Township crash rode motorcycles with Forbes, co-owned kitchen busine

A police car blocks the entrance to a long, shared driveway used today, Jan. 16, to get near the site of a fatal airplane crash yesterday in Holland Township off Riegelsville-Milford Road.Tim Wynkoop/Express Times  HOLLAND TWP. — Callers were reporting hearing, but not seeing, a possible plane crash late yesterday afternoon. So a county communications operator started calling local airports to learn if any of their pilots were in the air. Alexandria Field in neighboring Alexandria Township is owned by siblings Linda Castner and Bill Fritsche. Castner took the call and answered 'no,' because the weather — wet and foggy — was too bad. Her brother reminded her that Joseph 'Joe' Borin had flown a plane to Rochester, Wisconsin several days earlier, and was returning in his new American Champion Super Decathlon. They just didn't know when. Borin, 71, of Readington Township and his new plane were found, about four-a-half-hours after the first call came in to 911, on a wooded hilltop following a search by about 70 emergency responders, most of them volunteers. Attempts to revive Borin, 71, were unsuccessful. The shaded area shows the approximate location of a single-engine airplane that crashed in woods off Riegelsville-Milford Road yesterday. (Google Maps)  Castner met today with Borin's family, and said that the local aviation community is in shock. 'There is a very big hole in the universe with him gone,' she said on Jan. 16. Castner said that Borin often wore a pin 'Born to fly' pin, and was generous with his time as an aviator. She'd known him for about 30 years, because Alexandria was his home base throughout the years. Each summer, she said, he taxied students attending the airport's summer aviation camp back and forth on the runway in his vintage Stearman training bi-plane. He would talk about the people who used them to train pilots during World War II, including Castner and Fritsche's father, and give a lesson on the mechanics of the bi-plane. Borin never served in the military, but people who knew him said that he frequently took part in fly-bys to honor those who served. 'There is a very large group of people who will miss him,' Castner said. One of those people is John 'Jack' Barna. He and Borin attended Bound Brook High School together in the 1950s and in 1961 started a business that's still going strong in Warren, Superior Custom Kitchens. As teens, Barna said, he and Borin 'built a '41 Ford together,' as members of an auto club. 'Hot rods,' Borin 'would like to say.' After school Barna started crafting cabinets and Borin made storage tanks with a local company, Buffalo. In business, Borin was 'a great partner. We just chugged ahead, both of us,' designing, making and selling cabinets. I'm going to miss him.' On Superior Custom's website, Borin is described as an 'expert and experienced designer' and 'avid pilot' who also enjoyed 'traveling, scuba diving and spending time with his three grandchildren.' Barna said that Borin still had a motorcycle and confirmed that his partner had been one of Malcolm Forbes' motorcycle buddies, dubbed the 'Capitalist Tools.' In a 1987 Democrat story, Borin was there when actress Elizabeth Taylor got her first motorcycle ride, sharing an apple-red Harley Davidson Heritage with Forbes. Borin had been one of the 'tools' for seven years by that time, and told Forbes at the start of the ride to a roadside bar and picnic area, 'You really outdid yourself this time.' Suzy Solberg Nagle lives in Readington Township, where her family has a general aviation airport. She remembered the 'tools,' including Borin and her husband, Ed, wearing red blazers to identify themselves as members of the group. She said, 'Joe was also a hot air balloonist and friends with Denny Fleck — who worked for Malcolm Forbes — and is with Tewksbury Balloon Adventures.' Nagle reiterated Borin's support of aviation and airports. She said he would fly in to Solberg 'for open houses and other community events.' He and her husband were among those who would fly over the annual parade in Raritan Borough honoring World War II hero John Basilone. 'It is a sad day for aviation,' Nagle said. 'My sympathy goes out to his family.' Castner called Borin an 'absolute advocate of general aviation.' He was, she added, 'A pilot and a young man at heart, forever.'

Hamilton man gets 8 years for road-rage death
Michael Rafferty, 35, of Hamilton, was sentenced today to eight years in prison on a charge of manslaughter, for beating Cruz-Rivera over the head with a lead pipe. TRENTON — It was a video that had once inspired joy, but now only brought on tears to its audience: Edwin Cruz-Rivera, gleefully playing the conga drums — the instrument he had always said he would want to teach his grandson, if he ever had one. Today, Cruz-Rivera’s grandson is 2, but he has never met his grandfather, who was killed almost exactly four years ago during a confrontation in Hamilton sparked by a bout of road rage. The man responsible for his death, Michael Rafferty, 35, of Hamilton, was sentenced today to eight years in prison on a charge of manslaughter, for beating Cruz-Rivera over the head with a lead pipe. Rafferty said he was acting in self-defense after the 51-year-old Hamilton resident brandished a large knife during a fight with a third man, Chesterfield resident Thomas Haas, who is Rafferty’s friend and was his boss at the time. “I had no intention of taking your brother’s, your uncle’s, your loved one’s life that day, and I’m sorry,” Rafferty told Cruz-Rivera’s family at the hearing. “I don’t know why our lives collided that day. I’ve replayed every aspect of it in my head for the past four years and I can’t make any damn sense of it.” According to prosecutors, the April 3, 2010, incident began when Cruz-Rivera cut off Haas while driving, after which both men pulled over near Cruz-Rivera’s house on South Clinton Avenue and began yelling at each other in the street. When Rafferty pulled up in a third vehicle, he saw Cruz-Rivera pull a foot-long blade out of his car during his confrontation with Haas and took a pipe from his own truck, using it to strike Cruz-Rivera in the head with a “baseball-style swing.” The hit, which one witness said sounded like a gunshot, shattered his skull in several places and bruised his entire brain, rendering Cruz-Rivera brain dead nearly instantly, Assistant Prosecutor Skylar Weissman said. Two weeks later, Cruz-Rivera succumbed to his injuries. Along with the video of Cruz-Rivera playing the congas, another video was shown in court — footage taken from a street camera that captured the incident. In an unusual move for a sentencing hearing, an expert witness was called to testify on its contents. While the video of Cruz-Rivera being struck and falling to the ground was repeated numerous times — causing members of his family in the audience to sob, duck their heads and hold each other — Richard Celeste testified that if Rafferty were a police officer, he would have been justified to “meet deadly force with deadly force,” since Cruz-Rivera had a knife in his hand. Celeste runs police training in Somerset County and was deemed an expert in “use of force.” Still, it’s not the first time Rafferty has resorted to violence during a disagreement, according to Weissman, who brought up a previous assault and weapon charge Rafferty dealt with in 2001. He is also involved in an ongoing case for getting in a fight outside a bar last month. Mercer County Superior Court Judge Mark Fleming agreed, calling the attack a “supremely poor choice,” noting that Rafferty could have given warning before administering the deadly blow, or struck Cruz-Rivera in the arm or leg. He also acknowledged Rafferty’s past and present case in his ruling — which fell short of the 10-year maximum penalty — and said he also partly based his decision on Rafferty’s battle with alcoholism and what he perceived to be an “evident anger problem” Rafferty had displayed in court throughout the years. He called Rafferty’s apology to Cruz-Rivera’s family “long overdue.” After issuing his ruling, Fleming wished Rafferty luck, as the Hamilton man threw his arms up in the air before being handcuffed and blowing kisses to his sobbing family in the audience as he was led away. Cruz-Rivera’s family also sat crying and nodding their heads as the sentence was passed out. During the hearing, they spoke of him as charismatic and loving and said he had planned to marry the mother of his children a month after the incident took place. Cruz-Rivera’s brother, Jose Cruz, lamented that he would never get to grow old with Edwin, “like he always promised,” while Cruz-Rivera’s daughter, Zuleymalee Cruz-Santiago, said that her father would never get the chance to see her get married or have children. “My father was my best friend, my confidante, my everything,” said Ninjalee Cruz-Guzman, another of Cruz-Rivera’s daughters, sobbing heavily. “He was always a light, always full of laughter. If I saw him five times a day, he would hug me every time. Now, everything’s dark and there is no laughter and no one to hug me.” CONNECT WITH US: On mobile or desktop: • Like Times of Trenton on Facebook • Follow @TimesofTrenton on Twitter
