Obituary for Russell Everett Badger

Russell Badger, 70, passed away at his home in Riverview, FL, surrounded by his loving family on March 24. He is preceded in death by his parents, Earl “Bill” Badger and Lois (Milburn), brothers William Badger (Diane) of Attleboro, MA and Raymond Badger (Maureen) of Riverside, RI. He leaves behind a loving wife, Fran (Coleman) of 49 years, just 4 months shy of their 50th anniversary, daughters Cynthia Arruda (Jeremy) of Apollo Beach, Lisa Roaten (Charles) of Brandon, Fl, brother, Douglas Badger (Linda) of Port Charlotte, 7 grandchildren: Joshua Miller, Brandon Roaten, Justin Arruda, Krystal Badger, Kaitlyn Arruda, Gracie Roaten and Paizley Roaten, and many nieces and nephews. Russell is originally from Rumford, RI and graduated from East Providence High School in 1969. Upon graduating, he enlisted in the Air Force and excelled as an aircraft mechanic. He was stationed in Delaware, New York, Okinawa, Germany, North Dakota and Florida, where he retired, in 1993. His military career sparked his love of travel and adventure. He then worked for the HCSO before his health forced his second retirement in 1999. Russell was a kidney pancreas transplant at TGH in 2001 and that lifesaving moment gave us another 21 years to spend with him and create precious memories. He was a strong and courageous man, full of grit and he was determined to live his best life, despite its limitations. We are forever grateful to the donor and their family for their selfless and thoughtful decision to give Russell his second chance at lifemay it comfort them to know that he did not waste a single second of that. A Celebration of Life will be held on May 1st at 6pm at My Warrior’s Place in Ruskin, FL. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the National Kidney Foundation.
