Alston Badger oversaw a case that I was a part of when I was very young. I contacted him many years later to discuss it with him. He was patient, empathic, and sincere. His kind words helped me bring closure to a very dark period of my life. May he rest in peace. It is very apparent that he had a heart for the people he served. I'm so very sorry for your loss.

I did not know Mr. Badger, he was the prosecutor on my husbands case many years ago. I just wanted to give the family my condolences and may he rest in peace.

Through a grood friend in South Carolina we found out today of Alston Badger's death and we are deeply saddened by this tragic news. We met back in 2004 when he acted as the prosecutor in an unusual case where our lives had been under threat. His superb professionalism and skillful handling of the case ensured justice and our ongoing safety. He was also kind, calm and just a great person to have 'on our side'. We are forever grateful to him.

Our deepest sympathy to his wife and family.

We are so very saddened to hear the news of Alston's passing. He was Doug's mock trial partner and soccer teammate in law school--talented in both, as well as a lovely young man. I remember his apartment and a framed picture of him with his sisters laughing and trying to stay balanced in a pyramid. We have nothing but very fond memories of Alston and are thankful we had the privilege of knowing this fine man. Our prayers of comfort are with you during this very difficult transition.

My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Badger family. I have great memories of camping with my father, Alston and his father as a child. I have many fond memories from riding the P-G bus and of Alston's patience and kindness as well. We will miss him.

Rest in Paradise

Alston and I were both among the James Islanders at Porter-Gaud, and we were on the same bus route until we both got our licenses. As we gained passenger seniority (by dint of age and grade) over the years, Alston and I took turns each week taking the front passenger seat, an informal but universally acknowledged perk of our advanced status. He was very fair that way, and considerate, a virtue I got to experience again when, after years away
