Wayne Badgett

May 12, 1922 — March 24, 2013

Wayne Raymond Badgett, the youngest son of Nora (Miller) and King Richard Badgett was born on the family farm in Adams County on May 12, 1922.
Wayne attended Corning High School and graduated with the Class of 1941.
On January 22, 1943, Wayne was united in marriage to Dolores Aileen Dory in Maryville, Missouri and four children were born to the union.
Wayne and Dolores farmed in Adams County until they moved their family to Oregon in 1952. After returning to Corning in 1961, Wayne started a welding and repair business on the land where he had attended the Pottinger School as a child.
Over the years the family enjoyed many camping trips, finding secluded places with little or no habitation in the mountains or by the Snake River. Wayne was a member of the Christian Church in Milton-Freewater, Oregon, the Corning Camping Club and the Iowa Blacksmith Welders Association.
Left to cherish Waynes memory is his special friend, Phyllis Steadman; four children: Karolyn Badgett (friend Lorin Eilers) of Creston, IA, Larry (Isako) Badgett and Gary (Diane) Badgett of Corning, IA, Jerry (Donna) Badgett of Prescott, IA; four grandchildren: Debbie England (friend Dave Bickford) of Corning, IA, Derek (Elizabeth) Drew of Omaha, NE, Jason (Brenda) Badgett of Ames, IA, Megan (Clark) Crow of Creston, IA; nine great-grandchildren: Tristan (Kristy) England, Dillon Drew, Colton Drew and Leighton Drew, Aubrey, Neelya and Xarianna Badgett, Jay and Colton Crow and several nieces and nephews.
Preceding Wayne in death were his parents; wife, Dolores in 2000, his three brothers: Rex, Max and Roy; sisters-in-law: Orrie, Ruby, Geraldine and Darlene Badgett; and his niece, Phyllis Sevier.
