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.

Memorial Visiting Thursday 2-5pm and 7-9pm. Memorial Service Friday 10am at Families First 3260 Dougall Ave. South Windsor, 519-969-5841. Share memories, photos or make a donation at

Ye Yee, Dr. George Edward M.D., F.R.C.P., D.Sc.
A celebrated physician and philanthropist, Dr. George Yee, passed away peacefully on November 11th in the loving arms of his wife, at age 79. Devoted son of Charles Yee and Pauline Harrison. He is survived by his wife of 56 years Faye, the love of his life since pre-Kindergarten. He will be deeply missed by the other loves of his life; his 4 children Leslie Yee (Kevin Ryan), Dr. Lauren Yee (Dr. Jerry Tan) Jennifer Yee (Dr. Albert Schumacher) and Dr. Charles Yee. He is survived by his best friends, his brother William Yee (late Lise Yee) and his sister Margaret Wong (late Horne Wong). He leaves behind seven grandchildren, whom he adored; Dr. Victoria Tan, Westley Tan, Alana Ryan, Charlotte Tan, Camille Ryan, Brigitte Ryan, and Alison Schumacher. Through his dedication and perseverance, George excelled at many endeavors; from sports, to medicine, to business. As an athlete he humbly collected awards as some would collect parking tickets. He was an All-Canadian, and was inducted in to the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame in 1996 as part of the Winnipeg Rods football team. At a tryout for a competitive baseball team he hit two home runs and a triple his first three times at bat. In his later years George played squash, ran marathons and was an avid skier. George was honoured to be a member of the Medical profession and worked tirelessly to serve his patients. His vision and dedication to service led him to become CEO and Laboratory Director of Medical Laboratories of Windsor. He proudly received numerous awards and accolades on behalf of MLW and its employees for Community Service. George was extremely grateful for the gifts God had given him, and shared his success with his community through charitable initiatives and donations; the University of Manitoba Medical School, the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre, the Art Gallery of Windsor, the Windsor Symphony, and the Ontario Medical Association student bursary fund as the founder and lead contributor. For his volunteer activities he was awarded the Queen’s Jubilee medal. Though George’s shoes may never be filled, his legacy of kindness, humility and the devotion he exhibited in everyday life is a beacon for family and friends. George’s last wish for friends and family: “No tears please. I’ve had an unbelievably, fantastic life.” Visitation at WINDSOR CHAPEL FUNERAL HOME (Banwell Chapel) 519-253-7234 11677 Tecumseh Rd.
