Wayne Joseph Bondy, born on April 14, 1940 died on the morning of October 11, 2021. Wayne and his family have lived in Romeo, MI since the summer of 1977. Wayne was preceded in death by his one and only, Catherine (Rae) Bondy since October 18, 2020. He is survived by his sons, Wayne “Joe” (Jennifer) Bondy and Robert (Michele) Bondy; and his daughter, Melissa (Jim Jr.) Kaspari. Wayne was a very proud grandfather to Shannen (Chris) Davis, Taylor (Brandon) Corbett, Hailey (Jacob Smith) Bondy, Caitie Bondy, Cameron Kaspari and Ethan Kaspari. Wayne had one great-grandson, Declan Corbett, and two great-granddaughters on the way. He is also survived by one sister, Joyce Beneteau of Kimberly, British Colombia.
Wayne served in the United States Army and retired from Ford Motor Company as an Accountant/Auditor. However, his true love was farming; where he returned to after retirement to work on the VanHoutte farm until July of this year.
Wayne and Cathy were married on
August 27, 1960.
They met as teenagers when her family would vacation in Ontario, Canada where Wayne lived. They were married for 60 years and lived most of their married life in Romeo where they raised
their children and built many wonderful friendships.
Wayne was known as the “Dad” to most of those in the neighborhood and the passing of this amazing man ripples through so many lives. Over the past several years, Wayne took care of Cathy as she battled Alzheimer’s and through it all he gave her the comfort and love that she so richly deserved. What he did for her was something that not everyone has the fortitude to do and theirs was a true love story that stood the test of time. Wayne’s heart was broken when she passed and his love continued for her until the day he greeted her again.
Dad is missed by his kids, grandkids, and those that loved him dearly.
