Julian Bond

November 5, 2020

Julian Raymond Bond, age 95, passed away peacefully on Thursday, November 5, 2020, surrounded by his loving family.

Julian was born in Cleves, Ohio, to Lura and Ivan Bond on December 22, 1924. He is preceded in death by his parents Lura and Ivan Bond; beloved wife, Anne Bond; his firstborn son, Michael; his brother, Wetzel Bond; and sisters, Kathleen Walraven and Jean Abshier. 

He was a veteran of the United States Navy and served during World War II in the Pacific Theater aboard the USS Biscayne as Radioman Second Class, USN. Julian went on to join the United States Army and served as Sergeant Regular Army during the Korean War. One of his fondest memories was taking the Honor Flight to Washington, D.C. He learned the discipline and patriotism in the Navy, and the Army, as friends and family can attest.

Julian graduated from Coolville High School class of 1942 and went on to study engineering at The Ohio State University. Julian worked as an electrical contractor and was a member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union 683 since 1954. He founded Bond enterprises while living in Naples, Florida.

Survived by his children Tari McNamara, Connie (Richard) Sigler, Deborah (Errol) English, James Bond (Donna Cramer), John Bond, Timothy (Ellen) Bond; grandchildren, Jennie (Todd), Dennis (Cynthia), Lona (James), Erin (Harry), Sara, Patrick, Shawn, Nikki, Brandon, Scott; great-grandchildren, Alexandra, Madeline, Sophia, William, Cameron, Andrew, Gabriella, Madison, Olivia, Sophia, Harry, Magdelenina, Aidan, Ryan, Donovan, John Carlos, Penelope. He leaves many other family members and friends who will miss him and his wit. 

Julian had a strong faith and was a longtime member of Mountview Baptist Church. Nothing brought him more joy than spending time with his family, especially celebrating his birthday with chocolate cake.  Julian had a passion for gardening and was a Master Gardener with the Florida Cooperative Extension Services teaching classes to students and enthusiasts in fruit tree grafting as his specialty.

Julian always looked forward to playing cards with his friends but thoroughly enjoyed beating his sons at cribbage.  And, not to forget all of the countless tractor rides with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren throughout the years. We will miss his love, his smile, his sense of humor, his compassion, and his intelligence.

Special thanks to the excellent staff at Stone Oak Retirement Community, all of the doctors, nurses, and aides from the National Church Residence Home and Community Services.

The family will hold a private memorial at a later date.
