Bond dies in Fort Walton Beach, FL. His wife says the cause was complications of vascular disease. Wife:

[He] never took his eyes off the prize and that was always racial equality…He had a wonderful sense of humor. You know, that got him through the serious things he dealt with all his life. He used to joke that on his tombstone, one side would say ‘Race man’ and the other side would say, ‘Easily amused.’
