Death: Dec. 14, 1954
Franklin County
New York, USA

John Peaslee Badger, Jr. was an attorney, graduate of Albany Law School, and practiced at Malone, New York for many years. He was also District Attorney of Franklin County and an amateur magician of considerable attainments.

Mr. Badger was a native of Burke, New York, admitted to the Bar in 1904, and actively engaged in Franklin County practise until the time of his death, a period of over fifty years. His was a name that merited not only through himself alone, but through other members of his family, great renown at the Bar. He served with distinction as District Attorney for this County from 1935 through 1937, and as Acting Surrogate during the illness of Judge A. B. Cooney. As a private practitioner he was noted for an exceptionally high standard of legal ethics; for painstaking and conscientious devotion to his work; and as an able, kindly, and wise counsellor to his clients. He was respected by the Bench, admired by his fellow attorneys, and beloved by his clients.

His cheerfulness, Faith in his God, and courage through personal adversity allowed him to overcome and conquer a serious illness and may well serve as standards to others of us in times of trial.

His life was a dedication to his profession; his death serves to rekindle respect for his kind of lawyer.
