Frank Badder, affectionately known as, “Pappy”, of San Antonio, Texas went to be with the Lord on Saturday March 16, 2019. Frank was born to Ted and Fay Badder on July 25, 1947 in Fort Worth, Texas.

With a B.A. in journalism from Texas Christian University, he was the creating editor of "Code One Magazine".

Serving in the Army for over 25 years, he was a door gunner in Vietnam, a warrant officer, helicopter pilot and instructor. His parents preceded him in death. Surviving family includes his wife, Pam; his sons, Jason (Becky) and Jeremy (Kelli); his grandchildren, Hank, Julianna, Greyson, Peyton, and Brynleigh; his sister, Wren Leinweber (Mark); brother, Stanley; several nieces, nephews and cousins.

He had many loves; God, family, country, flying, and writing. He loved to make people smile. He was well-loved and will be sorely missed. His final goodbye was, “ See you on the other side.”

Frank and I flew together in Vietnam. The last time I saw Frank was that the 189th reunion in Colorado springs. We share a lot of Old war stories together. I will miss him.

I learned of Frank’s passing from the TCU Magazine last summer. Frank befriended me when I was a wet-behind-the-ears freshman at TCU. He held me spellbound for hours on end with his stories from Vietnam. Despite our age difference, we remained good friends until he graduated. I came to love and respect Frank. God broke the mold with Frank. My condolences to the family.

I'm just now learning of this. I had my son dig online for any information that he could find since it had been a spell since we last spoke before the last Ghostriders reunion in which he and his wife weren't gonna be able to attend. I wasn't expecting this and was truly unprepared. My condolences go to Pam and the rest of Pappy's family.
The "Rebel" is crushed.
