James C. Badger

James C. Badger, 65, of Richland, WA, died Sunday, June 23, 2002, at the Tri-Cities Chaplaincy Hospice House, Kennewick, WA.  He was born June 27, 1937, in Fremont, Nebraska and had lived in the Tri-Cities since 1942.

Mr. Badger worked as a Hanford area bus driver and as a bartender before retiring.  For the last eight years, he rang the bell for the Salvation Army.

    He was a member of Holy Spirit Catholic Church.

James is survived by his wife of 41 years, Pam Badger; daughter, Tracy Benson; son, Jim Badger; daughter, Shawna Black; grandkids, Sara and Tarin Benson, Dalyn and Nichole Black; sister and brother-in-law, Patti and Gene Keller; brother-in-law, Michael Howard; sister and brother-in-law, Susan and Dave Merideth, brother and sister-in-law, Roger and Chris Howard; and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Loren F. Badger and Elsie Badger; and children, Robin Badger and James Badger.

His children and his grandkids were his greatest love.  He loved sports, hunting and fishing.  He collected eagles, knives and coins.  Talking with old friends about all the “old days” gave his great happiness.  He was a loving and giving person, and we will miss him so much.

Memorial services will be held at 1:00 p.m. Thursday, June 27, 2002, at Einan’s Funeral Home.  Graveside services will follow in Sunset Memorial Gardens.

    Jim and I were best friends, we had many good times togather, fishing , hunting and sports.

    A memory:

    I went over to pick up Jim before the Chief Joe football game, and before we left his house,Jim`s dad said,for every touch down you make Jim, I`ll give you a box of shot-gun shells. So during the game,every time we got close to the goal line, I gave the ball to ” Badge”. Jim made enough touch downs for a case of shells!

    Jim, I`ll never forget you!

    Sincerely,

    your friend always, Gary Hinkle
