Archie A. Badura

Nov. 16, 1994 – May 15, 2014

Our beautiful son, Archie Andrew Badura of Oconomowoc, was called home to rest into the loving arms of Jesus on Thursday, May 15, 2014.

Archie was adored by his parents, Andy and Lauri Badura, and devoted brother, Augie. Archie was born on November 16, 1994. He was a 2013 graduate of Oconomowoc High School. Archie touched the lives of so many with his huge compassionate heart, his wonderful sense of humor, warm smile and gentle ease. His spirit of laughter and love will be missed by his family, and St. Joan of Arc Parish family, especially his inspirational priest and mentor, Father Michael Strachota. He will be deeply missed by grandparents Pat McHugh of Naples, Fla., Joan Badura of Ashippun and Robert and Maria Badura of Wauwatosa. He was blessed to be surrounded and loved by a large family of 17 aunties, uncles and 22 cousins.

A funeral Mass for Archie was held at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church in Nashotah on Tuesday, May 20. Following the Mass, there was a bonfire on the parish property in Archie’s memory. Archie was laid to rest beside his grandfather Archie H. McHugh at St. Joan of Arc Cemetery on Wednesday, May 21.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Archie Badura’s name to the Addiction Resource Council Inc., 741 N. Grand Ave., #300, Waukesha, WI 53186, for the Saving Others for Archie Fund.

The Badura Family would like to thank everyone for their heartfelt thoughts and prayers and especially now needed for Archie’s cousin Michael Micky Dean.
