Ronald was called home by our Heavenly Father surrounded by his family on the evening of October 15th, after a courageous battle with cancer. Preceded in death by his parents, Joseph and Josephine Bondi, sister, Virginia Barone, and brother, Dennis Bondi, beloved husband to Suzanne Bondi. Deeply devoted father to Gina Ruiz (Donald), Mia Bondi and Joe Bondi (Shelli). Adored Papa to Ryan, Jacob, Joey, Siena, Brooke and Aiden. Loving brother to Joe Bondi, Nancy Ferreira and Richard Bondi, fun loving, spirited Uncle to his many nieces and nephews. Born and raised in San Jose, Ron spent much of his youth playing "screen ball" with his buddies at Backesto Park. He attended Grant Elementary, Peter Burnett Junior High and San Jose High School where he excelled as the Bulldog's quarterback and captain of the baseball team. In the Summer of 1965, Ron met Sue and it was "love at first sight". They married in July of 1966 and the love affair continued for 47 years. Ron began his career in law enforcement as a Deputy for the Santa Clara County Sheriffs Department. After two years, he accepted a position with the San Jose Police Department protecting and serving the community with respect and integrity. Retiring as a Sergeant in 1997, Ron enjoyed what he loved most, spending time with family, watching his grandchildren grow and rooting for his San Francisco Giants and the 49ers, while talking to his buddy, Moe! We will hold his memory close to our hearts until we meet again. Vigil Service Monday, October 21, at 7pm at Lima Family Santa Clara Mortuary, 466 N.
