Badeer, Henry S., M.D.
Age 97 - Feb 10, 2012

Adams, NE. Mr. Badeer lived a blessed, full life. He graduated from the American University of Beirut, and became a practicing physician in Beirut, Lebanon. He then decided to devote full time to teaching and medical research, particularly cardiovascular physiology (he later wrote a textbook on this subject). Having moved his family to USA, he later taught at Creighton Medical School in Omaha, NE. He was much loved at Creighton: "Dr. Badeer is without doubt the gentlest, most pleasant person with whom students, faculty members and administrators interact in the School of Medicine. If anyone ever lived by the Golden Rule, it is Henry Badeer!" He was much loved by his family and friends. He was fluent in several languages, and enjoyed working with his hands. He was well known for his generosity, honesty, diligence, and faith. Survivors include his sons, Dan (Deb) Badeer, Hickman, NE, Gilbert (Ruzana) Badeer, Cincinatti, OH; 10 grandchildren; 5 great grandchildren; 2 nephews; and 3 nieces.
