Timothy Bond

Born 1-1-1956 died 3-26, 2009

 
Tim Bond passed from death unto life into the arms of our blessed & living Savior Jesus Christ on Thursday, March 26th, 2009. He died from a surgery complication.
 
Timothy Wayne Bond was born in Stillwater Oklahoma on January 1st 1956.  He was the first baby born that day in that city & made the newspaper. His father, Charles Richard Bond, was stationed in Stillwater as an Air force Captain.
 
They moved to the south bay in Torrance California, where he lived & went to school, and graduated from Redondo Union High School in 1974.
 
He met his wife Debby in 1978 & married Deborah Bond on May 19th, 1979. In the couples’ twenties they became involved in a Church and Beach Ministry with Chapel by the Sea and both became Christians. They used their musical talent to help lead worship. They would have been married 30 years this May.  
 
The couple adopted their first child, Andrew, who was born on August 16th 1990. In July of 1992 they moved to Kansas City.  The family adopted a sister from Korea in 1994. Kathleen was born October 27th, 1994.
 
Tim was very intelligent & worked as a Senior Contract Administrator writing contracts for his company that made nav aid equipment. He worked with them for about 16 years, here in Kansas City. Through His contract work He also traveled the world visiting places like Egypt, Jamaica, Korea, Japan, the Middle East, and more.
 
Tim was very talented & generous with his audio talents using them in church production recordings, Easter & Christmas productions at Rolling Hills Covenant Church in California, Hillcrest Community Church in Prairie Village, and Lenexa Baptist Church in Lenexa, Kansas. He also did special recordings every year for the Shawnee Mission West High School choir productions, as well as making music cd recordings for other various groups and individuals. He spent time recording cds for various specialty projects as well.  He spent many summers doing audio at the “Thee Camp” summer camps for Junior High and High School Kids for Lenexa Baptist Church. He spent the better part of 25 years using his gift for the Lord and teaching others.
 
He was best loved for his wonderful sense of humor, and very loving unselfish attitude to help anyone anytime. He had great wisdom in computers, electronics and was a self learned type of person with great wit. He knew how to do just about anything without even reading a book.
 
He loved God, life, his wife, and children. Tim & Katie enjoyed taking the pups to the dog park.  Drew & his dad enjoyed intelligent conversation and going target shooting. Tim loved cartoons, science shows, and that morning cup of coffee. He was always making people laugh.
 
Statements he was most known to say were “Ain’t no thing”, “Just Relax”, “Don’t worry. Be happy”. He was most often seen wearing his casual Hawaiian shirts, no matter where he went. He loved sitting in his favorite chair, hanging with His pups & family.
 
We know he is just relaxing with no more pain or worries, in the arms of our Heavenly Father & making jokes down the streets of the pearly gates, meeting lots of old friends.
 
We will miss Him & always cherish the time we had with Him. We look forward to being reunited with him some day in glory.
 
Tim is survived by His wife Debby, Son, Drew 18, Daughter, Katie 14, his 2 dogs who were like his kids, Teddy & Gracie, his mother, Gloria Bond, his father, Charles Richard Bond, his brother Steven Bond, his sister-in-law and her dear friend, Sharon Fladrich and Ramiro, his niece & nephews Anna Fladrich, Tim & Monica Fladrich, John & Sarah Fladrich.
 
Memorial Services will be held April 7th at 1pm at the College Church of the Nazarene, 2020 Sheridan Ave in Olathe, Kansas with a reception immediately following at the Bond Household, for family as well as friends.

    We will all miss his great depth of knowledge here at work, but just as much we will miss his funny, irreverent take on life. He was the best boss I ever worked for, but more than that, I considered him a friend.

    I continue to be astonished at the unexpected leaving of our friend and brother in Christ, Tim. You can know that many of us outside the immediate family will feel the gap his Homegoing leaves in our lives, and in the ranks of our group of lifelong friends.
    Ironically, several friends that Tim knew well from our youth have just reconnected, but too late for a reunion this side of Glory. We will wait for that wonderful time a bit later. Time flies faster and faster and we will all be again together, in a much wholer place with our Savior.
    My love and best wishes and prayers,
    Claire Wagner

    Debby, Drew and Katie, we are so sorry for your loss.

    Debbie – we were so sad to hear of the loss of Tim. Even though we have not seen you in years, we still consider you part of our family in Christ and we grieve with you. Remember our great times in small group study? And remember walking with the Onnens through their international adoption process? And remember your pursuit of a good allergy doctor for Drew? I hae passed along that doctor’s name to several people. You just don’t know how many lives you will touch. You and Tim have both touched many. Peace to you and the kids.

    sincerely, Terry and Kim Clevenger

    Tim and I became friends in Redondo Beach riding bicycles and I remember we used to ride his old white Honda 50cc motorcycle in a field behind the Redondo High School. I remember the day his older brother rode up on his red Kawasaki triple that must have been in 1972 perhaps. Cool! Tim and I both worked for Munro’s Union 76 gas station in Redondo beach and I recall he had a Volkswagen bug custom painted a great looking yellow pearl color. I have great memories from long ago and I am sure we will see each other to discuss all this!
