Warren Charles Badgley, Jr., age 73 passed away at his home in Friendswood after a valiant 3-year battle with cancer on January 2, 2021, surrounded by his family.

He was preceded in death by his father Warren Charles Badgley, Sr. and mother Louise Marion Boyce.

Born and raised in Philadelphia, Warren attended Central High School and Dobbins Technical Institute before enlisting in the Army. Following a tour in Vietnam as a communications specialist, he returned to Philadelphia and graduated from Drexel University in 1976. Warren then embarked on a fascinating 44-year career in data analysis and system design for government customers such as the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security and NASA. At NASA, he worked on various engineering programs including Shuttle and International Space Station for over 25 years. Warren enjoyed spending time with his family, especially his children and grandchildren. A lifelong guitarist, Warren was also active in music ministry, playing and singing for the children’s ministry and the homeless ministry at Gateway Community Church in Webster.

  4. Mr. Warren as our Gateway Kids called him, was such a blessing over the many years at Gateway Church as he faithfully served on Sundays. His kind soul, gentle spirit, love for the Lord, and his love of singing and playing his guitar with our children was a beautiful picture of what a Saint on earth looks like. We loved him so and will miss him dearly. Prayers for his family and blessings of comfort and peace to each of you.

  6. Warren, my dear friend and workmate – we had many an interesting conversation talking through the partition between our desks as well as hanging out in the passageway. Even though working from our homes these many months we managed to keep in touch. May the peace of the Lord be with you and your loved ones as you lie in your eternal rest.

  7. Warren walked right into our hearts when he and Darlene married. He leaves a lasting example of love, loyalty and hard work. He never gave up! What a legacy he leaves for his family. Love and prayers to all his family.
    Darryl and Sharon Reed
