William Alexander Bond, Sr., affectionately known as "Willie," was born on February 20, 1957 in Washington, DC to Frances V. Bond and the late John Henry Bond, Jr. Willie was the oldest, and loved the designation of being the "first of nine." Willie entered into eternal rest on December 11, 2020 in Leonardtown, MD.
Willie attended St. Mary's County Public Schools, graduating from Chopticon High School, Morganza, MD, in 1975. Willie enlisted in the U.S. Army in June 1975. After he separated from active duty, Willie became employed with Blue Cross Blue Shield in Washington, DC; he retired after 35 years of employment in Computer Operations.
Willie enjoyed reading, doing crossword puzzles, cooking, fishing, sports and relating to people of all walks of life. Willie was recognized within the Southern Maryland Communities for his days on the baseball and softball fields. Willie never met a stranger because many became his friends, and he was able to relate to anyone. Willie sincerely loved his family, and especially the family trips and gatherings. He willingly participated wherever needed. One of Willie's biggest joys was when he became a grandfather, first to his prince, Cortezz in 2008, and then to his princess, Alyani in 2019. Willie touched many lives. He will be missed forever.
Prior to relocating to St. Mary's County, Willie was a faithful member of the St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, Clinton, MD. Willie volunteered many hours at the Catholic schools his sons attended, and within the athletic programs Will and Jeremy participated in. Willie was a member of the St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church Knights of Columbus Council #11171.
