  • Burial Lower Lake, Lake County, California, USA
  • Plot 59-A School Addition, Claude Bond plot, (Cre.)

Age 49.

Fourth and youngest child and 3rd son of Clint and Freda (Clark) Bond. Brother of Bobby, Sis (Claudia), and Raymond. Married 26 years to Judy (Akridge) Partin, daughter of R.K. Akridge and Vera (Havenhill) Akridge. Loving dad to Bill Partin Bond.

He spent his childhood years in the Bay Area, moving to Clearlake Highlands in the mid-to-late '60s after his parents retired here. He met his future wife in 1967, they married in 1969, moved to San Francisco in 1973, to San Lorenzo in 1977, and back to Lake County in 1980.

He worked as a CA State Forestry fire-fighter, then fire-truck driver out of the Middletown and Clearlake Oaks forestry stations in Lake Co.; a scaffoldman on high-rise buildings (Safway Steel) and in the shipyards in the Bay Area (Todd's) and in Alaska (R&R Scaffolding); he was part of a work group that remodeled homes in San Francisco. He worked in a local cabinet shop and a car painting and restoral shop, for a local electrician and a septic-pump/ blue-rooms service, a garbage disposal company, an Arabian horse ranch, and the mortuary. He was a heavy-equipment operator for TIC, working twice at the local Homestake Gold Mine and in Beatty, Nevada. Disabled with a serious back injury his last four years, he was being vocationally rehabilitated in the Sacramento area for a future in electronics work when he died suddenly, the Sunday before Thanksgiving 1995. Too soon.

Cause of death: Arteriosclerosis.

He was predeceased by his parents, his brother Bob, his Uncle Chet, and his nephew Danny who was killed in Viet Nam.

He was spontaneous, a bit of a dare-devil, a fun-lover, a great dancer, and a teller of tall tales. He was patient, inventive, and creative. A pack-rat, he could make something useful out of items at hand or turn something perfectly good into something else. A jack-of-all-trades, he could tie the best knots and could drop a huge tree branch where he wanted it to land, with a chain saw.

He was a loyal friend, a loving dad, and a faithful husband. He was the kindest person I have ever known.
