Peter Michael Bond, 45, with his son Cooper, passed away on Monday, Sept. 6, 2010, near Anderson, TX. He was born on July 9, 1965, in Glenridge, N.J., to Joseph Carroll Bond, Jr. and Vera Jensen Bond.
Peter was soft-spoken and did not try to draw attention to himself. To the outside world, he was a man of few words. To those who were close to him, he was an incredibly loving "old soul."
Peter met his best friend and future wife, Kelly, when he was a senior and she was a freshman at Texas A&M University. He proudly graduated from Texas A&M- Class of '88, and was a brother there in the Sigma Nu Fraternity where many lifelong friendships were created. He loved both Texas A&M and Sigma Nu for the brotherhood, solid traditions, integrity and loyalty for which both groups stood.
He went on to receive his Master of Business Administration in finance from St. Thomas University in Houston. Peter joined Farmer's Insurance Group in Houston and worked there for nine years, then moved to San Antonio and served Farmers there for the last 10 years.
Peter and his wife Kelly celebrated their 19th wedding anniversary on Aug. 3rd. He was an honest man, and others recognized that quality in him. He loved sports, especially golf and Texas A&M football. He was an amazing husband and father who consistently made his wife and children his number one priority.
Peter is survived by his wife Kelly, his son Ben, and his daughter Abby, all of Fair Oaks Ranch; his parents Joseph Carroll Bond Jr. and Vera Jensen Bond of Trinity; his brother Joseph Carroll Bond, III, of Spring; extended family, and many loyal friends.
A celebration of Peter's life will be held Saturday, Sept. 11, 2010 at 3 p.m. at St. John Lutheran Church in Boerne. Interment will follow at the Boerne Cemetery.

Cooper Michael Bond
Cooper Michael Bond, with his father Peter Michael Bond, passed away on Monday, Sept. 6, 2010, near Anderson. He was 10 years old and was a fifth grade student at Fair Oaks Ranch Elementary. A fellow student described him as "the nicest kid in fifth grade."
Cooper had a remarkably strong work ethic and was always the first to offer his help, whether it be cleaning the garage, mowing the yard or building a tree house. He adored his Papa and took after him in so many ways, including his work ethic and his natural curiosity and love of life. Cooper was intuitive and could sense when others needed extra attention or love.
He was a giving, loyal and faithful friend, brother and son. He was "the best brother anyone could ever have, and he would do anything for you" according to his big brother Ben. Cooper and his little sister Abby were best buddies. He was an encourager for her and was proud of her accomplishments.
He appreciated nature and loved to roam in the woods and climb trees. He was independent, inquisitive and creative. Like his father Peter, Cooper loved Texas A&M, and aspired to become an Aggie himself one day. Cooper cherished his dog Pico. Cooper was a sweet young man who was building his relationship with God. He had recently asked to be baptized. The baptism was scheduled for Sept. 12. Cooper is now with God.
Cooper is survived by his mother Kelly Bond, his brother Ben, his sister Abby, all of Fair Oaks Ranch; his grandparents Michael and Wanda Walker of Belvedere, Calif., and Joseph Bond, Jr. and Vera Bond of Trinity. He also leaves behind aunts, uncles, cousins and dear friends.
