In loving memory of

Everett "Boogie" Bonds, Jr.
June 29, 1989 - February 22, 2020

On June 29, 1989, the world was blessed with a handsome baby boy, Everett Bonds, Jr. His beloved parents Deborah Moore-Taylor and Everett H. Bonds, Sr., welcomed their son with a grateful heart. Everett, Jr was affectionately called "BOOGIE" by his family and friends. Boogie was known to be a bright, funny, loving, care-free and spirited person. Boogie always enjoyed the busyness and adventures that the outdoors brought him. Boogie received his educational experiences in the Wisconsin School System. He attended Oliver Wendell Holmes Elementary School, Madison East High School, and Madison College. Boogie was always finding a way to make it happen, which led him to labor at multiple factory establishments. Boogie's outstanding personality and character was one modeled
by loyalty and trust. To know him was to truly love him. Boogie had a contagious laughter and a very bright smile that would light up any room. He was loved by many and a friend to all that met him. Boogie had a heart of gold, he didn't mind lending a hand, if he had it, he gave it, if he didn't he made a way to make it happen, going the extra mile for others was what he did in love, care, and concern. Boogie loved his family and close friends, he enjoyed traveling to the many different states where they resided. Boogie was always ready to step out and have good time, he loved to dress fly and be on the scene. He was always the life of the party, you couldn't help but to be happy when in his presence. He found pleasure in his music, love for cars, and making people laugh. Boogie will be greatly missed by all that knew, loved and respected him. On the evening of February 22, 2020, Boogie gained His wings of honor, as he transitioned into his heavenly home where he was welcomed by his baby boy, A'Don Kavionte Thomas-Bonds, two grandmothers; Virginia Lee Campbell and Mary Lee Bonds, three grandfathers; Hershel William Campbell, Sr, James E.
