September 6, 1967 - January 28, 2021
On Thursday, January 28, 2021 Edward Alguston Bonds, affectionately called “Eddie” entered into eternal life. Eddie was born in Alexandria, Virginia and graduated from Fort Hunt High School. Eddie is predeceased by his loving wife Letha M. Bonds and is survived by his mother Delores E. Bonds, two brothers, Dwight Bonds and Corey Bonds, Sr. (Dee-Dee). He is also survived by one uncle Johnny Martin (Brenda), two nephews Corey Bonds, Jr. and Colby Bonds, one niece Lania Bonds, one great nephew Kyrie Bonds and one great niece Kaylen King. He also leaves to mourn a host of cousins, many close friends and his extended family from the Alexandria City Police Department where he worked until the time of his death. Eddie developed a passion for coaching after he started coaching little league football at Gum Springs Community Center. He then went on to coach High School Football at West Potomac, T.C. Williams and Mount Vernon. After he finished coaching high school football he was asked to coach with the DC Wolves, a sports program devoted to the development of community college students. Eddie was a life-long diehard Dallas Cowboy fan. He was also a beast at the game of chess and willingly took on all challengers no matter where they were located. He also liked fishing. Whether Eddie was dressed up as Barney at his niece’s third birthday party, dressed up and playing Santa at the family Christmas party or just being himself, he was always the life of the party and always having everybody in the room laughing. Eddie loved singing and playing music, his oldies but goodies and blues. That big smile and loving spirit may be gone but it will definitely live on in our hearts forever through our own personal memories and experiences that we have all shared with him. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS THE FAMILY WOULD LIKE TO EXTEND THEIR APPRECIATION FOR YOUR PRAYERS, CALLS AND MANY OTHER EXPRESSIONS OF LOVE DURING THEIR TIME OF BEREAVEMENT. ALSO SPECIAL THANKS TO TRINA GIBSON AND THE ALEXANDRIA POLICE DEPARTMENT FOR ALL OF THEIR SUPPORT.
