I am so very sorry to have to inform you all that Terry Bonds, our 30-year newly retired (January 2021) maintenance staff member, passed away last night. Terry was surrounded by his family at Northwestern Memorial, and we are happy he was not alone.
Terry was as kind as he was gentle, and served the Association with his personal touch each and every day. I only met Terry a year ago, but in that short time, I got to know him well and he will certainly be missed – I will, no doubt, miss the conversations about jazz music and his experience during that golden age in Chicago.
Terry leaves behind 5 children, many grandchildren, a great grandchild on the way, and countless friends. Please keep Terry and his family in your thoughts and prayers. We will keep everyone apprised of any further information and arrangements.
