Mr. Badal was preceded in death by his sister, Charlotte Wynegar.

Herb was a graduate of Armstrong school and Sullivan High School in Chicago where he earned All-State honors in football. He went on to attend the University of Illinois where he joined the Delta Chi Fraternity and played end for the University of Illinois football team from 1952-1956, including a trip to the Rose Bowl as a freshman. He was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the Army and trained as an artillery officer before being stationed in South Korea. While there, his football talents led to playing and serving as a head coach in the I Corps football league until the end of his tour. He returned to the States and began his career in manufacturing as a plant manager beginning in Chicago with Field Container and later with Package Products/Sonoco in Charlotte, and Diamond Packaging inRochester, NY.
