Obituary of Kenneth Jerome Badour
Kenneth Jerome Badour, 36, of Auburn, our humorous and most generous son, brother, uncle, nephew, and friend passed unexpectedly on the evening of Saturday, March 18, 2017 at his home. Kenny was born in Bay City on December 30, 1980, the son of Kenneth and Bonnie (Chard) Badour. He was a 1999 graduate of Bay City Western and went on to attend Davenport University. Kenny worked at Transport in Midland as a truck driver. Throughout life, Kenny was known for his love of ATV’s, deer hunting, and spending time with his family and friends. While Kenny was very straight forward and never one to sugar coat anything, he indeed had a heart of gold and would help anyone in need. He was a thoughtful, appreciative, and grateful young man who will be deeply missed, but lovingly remembered for years to come. Kenny leaves to cherish his memory, his parents, Kenneth and Bonnie Badour; sister, Theresa (Dan) VanSumeren; niece, Kassandra VanSumeren; nephew and Godson, Connor VanSumeren, and great-nephew, Kooper VanSumeren. His memory will remain alive in the hearts of his great friends, who were more like family to him: Dave and Mandy Brinks, and their children, DJ and Autumn, and Ken and Tiffany Heiden and their children. Kenny will be greatly missed by many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. He was welcomed home to heaven by his grandparents, Carise Badour, Jean Harrington, and Duane and Sandy Chard, and his uncle, Eugene Badour. Kenny’s family will be present to receive visitors on Tuesday, March 21, 2017 from 2:00 PM until 8:00 PM and again on Wednesday, March 22, 2017 from 10:00 AM until the time of Kenny’s 11:00 AM Tribute Ceremony at Skorupski Family Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 955 N.
