James R. Badger of Milton, Del.

James R. Badger, 79, of Milton, Del., died Tuesday, Aug. 8, after a long illness. He was the husband of Patricia Badger, with whom he shared 34 loving years of marriage.

Born in West Chester, he was the son of the late James Donald and the late Edna (Sheets) Badger. James graduated from the University of Delaware, where he received a bachelor’s degree in psychology. He then went on to work in the technology industry as a buyer for Hewlett Packard. He eventually retired from Agilent Technologies.

When James wasn’t working he loved boating, fishing and being on the water in general. He also enjoyed tinkering with items and always said, “I can fix that.” Most of all, he enjoyed spending time with his family and traveling with them as well.

Amidst all the memories, his family and friends will always remember his dry sense of humor, the great amount of patience he had, his laid back demeanor and that he was always the life of the party.

Along with his wife, Patricia, James is survived by his children, James (Donna), Dawn (Ric), Jeff (Amy), and Andrew; his sisters, Dot and Betty; his grandchildren, Niki, James, Rick, Mackenzi, Craig, Candice, Michael, DJ, Sarah, Paul, Samantha, Angela, and Lauren; his three great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.

James was predeceased by his brother, Bob, and his daughter, Wendy.
