ObituaryShare A Memory
Often wrong, never in doubt. John Robert “Bob” Bond was born October 14, 1928 in Joplin, Missouri, the 8th of 12 children, to Daisy Jackson Bond and Charles Clyde Bond. He peacefully passed away at Cottage in The Meadow on October 4, 2018 in Yakima, Washington, at the age of 89. 
 
Bob completed his education in 1946 in Joplin, Missouri. He married Mary Alice Burris in Bentonville, Arkansas in 1948. They were blessed with two sons. Mary Alice passed away in July of 1999 in Yakima, Washington. Bob married Mary McEver in 2000.
 
Bob enjoyed a 25-year career with the Washington State Department of Transportation. He was an active member of Terrace Heights Baptist Church and was instrumental in the completion of their multi-purpose facility. Bob was also an enrolled member of the Wyandotte Tribal Nation of Miami, Oklahoma.
 
He is survived by his wife, Mary McEver-Bond, of Moxee, his two sons: Bobby (Becky) Bond, of Yakima, and Mike (Barbara) Bond, of Richland, four grandsons: James, Brian, Scott, and Jason, five great-grandchildren: Hannah, Brooke, Dylan, Jaxton, and Rowan, two sisters and three step-children: Joyce, Paula, and Edward, all of California.
 
The family would like to thank Landmark Care Center and the Cottage in The Meadow for our Dad’s loving care. 
 
Bob was very much the patriarch of the family and we will miss him greatly.
 
A Graveside Service will be held at Terrace Heights Memorial Park on Thursday, October 11, 2018 at 1:00 pm, followed by a reception meal at Terrace Heights Baptist Church (619 S. 41st St., Yakima). In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are suggested to St. Jude Children’s Hospital or Cottage in The Meadow and sent in care of Brookside Funeral Home (PO Box 1267, Moxee, WA 98936), who is caring for the family.
