BONDY, RICHARD (Dick) JOSEPH

Posted by on November 18, 2014

web_bondy_richardDied peacefully on November 17, 2014 at age 84.

Survived by his loving wife of 21 years, Mary-Ann Keefner; by his children Christine Riley (Jim), Laurie Flannery, Robin, Robert, Stephen, Rose Stewart (Dave), Liz Lumley (Gord Smith), and Thomas (Laura Dwyer); by his step-children Nicole Baillargeon (Sinisa Simic) and Danielle Fink (Mike); by his grandchildren, Caitlin, Dylan, Jeremy, Bryan, Mark, Jeff, Mike, Jesse, Roxanne, Grant, Kareese, Kayla, Alana, Taylor and the newest addition, baby Alice; by great-grandchildren, Breanna, Nathan, Lily, Austin, Alex, Grace and Zoey and by his little best friend for close to 16 years, Bailey. Devoted brother of the late Gloria Tuck (1995).

Dick enjoyed duck hunting, fishing, bird-watching and everything outdoors. He was a life-long amateur hockey player and was pleased to be the Captain at one time of the Bendo Blazers. Dick had a wonderful sense of humour and was a great story teller, with stories on growing up, growing wise and growing old. We often relied on his wise counsel. He achieved a lifelong dream by earning his private pilot’s license and shared his love of flying with his son Robert.

Dick earned a B.A. from Assumption College (now University of Windsor) in 1952, and the equivalent of an LLB from Osgoode Hall Law School, Toronto, in 1956. He practiced with McTague, Clark; Holden, McMahon, Zuber & Thrasher and Holden, Zuber, Bondy & Cusinato, retiring in 2000 as the lead counsel of Bondy, Riley, Koski, Stewart. His 44-year law practice focused on municipal law, representing many local municipalities, including the Town of LaSalle and the County of Essex. For 16 years he was a part-time Deputy-Judge for the Small Claims Court. He defied the odds after a debilitating stroke in 2004 by recovering enough to walk, drive and even return to work at the Court.

He was a voracious reader of almost any topic. He loved travelling in North America, especially northern Ontario, and ultimately where ever there might be an ice cream shop at the end of the road. He was a loving husband, father and grandfather, a leader and a good friend to many people. We will all miss him. Many blessings, peace and happiness be yours, Richard.

Cremation has taken place. If you so desire, donations to Ontario Heart and Stroke Foundation.
