Dennis Elwin Badger

March 15, 1950 — December 10, 2021

Dennis Elwin Badger, age 71, of Battle Creek, Michigan went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Friday, December 10. He was surrounded by his family. His greatest legacy was bringing Jesus Christ to his family. Surviving him is his wife of 52 years, Pam; his mother-in-law, Robbie (Granny) Tackett; his daughter, Abby (Chris Davis); and his four sons, Aaron (Becky), Nathaniel (Nicole), Matthew (Aubri), and Seth (Ashley). He had fifteen beloved grandchildren, including Josiah (Megan), Gabrielle, Jeremiah, Naomi, Lily, Luke, Savannah, Nolan, Hudson, Gabriella, Zoey, Soren, Roy, Brandt, and a baby girl on the way; three great-grandchildren, Hazel, Joey and Brooks; and special nephew and niece, Paul (Wendy) Tackett and Marie (Rollie) Ferris.

Dennis graduated from Springfield High School in 1968. He was drafted in the United States Army in 1969 and honorably served for more than 2 years. He continued his service by participating in the Honor Guard at Fort Custer National Cemetery. He worked at Clark Equipment, Kellogg's and then retired from Grace Health Center in 2015.

He loved spending time with his family at Gun Lake. He was very active and enjoyed "glamping" in his RV, biking, woodworking, and continuously working on home renovations.
