J. Scott Bond

October 31, 1963 ~ January 5, 2022 (age 58)


J. Scott Bond, 58, of Norwalk, Ohio died at Fisher-Titus Medical Center on January 5, 2022.  He was born on October 31, 1963 in Southhampton, NY to the late Wayne and Carol (VonSeggern) Bond.  Scott was a 1982 Western Reserve High School graduate.  He received his business degree from Oakland City University and also completed several certificates through various bible studies.  Scott served his country as part of the Army Reserves before later joining the United States Air Force.    

Along life’s journey, Scott spent a few years away, but, he always seemed to find his way back to Norwalk and spent the majority of his life in the area.  In 2016, Scott and his bride, Brenda (Fessenden) Bond, were married.  The two had dated years ago, but their paths led back to one another.  They shared a love of the Lord, supporting charities, and Harley Davidson rides.  As members of Norwalk Baptist Church they volunteered for the food pantry and many other events and participated in many charity rides.  Scott was a member of Mad River H.O.G., Glass City H.O.G. and the National H.O.G. (Harley Owners Group).  He also enjoyed being a DJ along with his friend Scott Hite, drag racing, archery, woodworking with his grandfather and brother, Cub Cadets, and Massey Ferguson tractors.  Scott loved his children and grandchildren dearly.    

Scott was a truck driver.  With signed permission from his parents, Scott began at the age of 17, and most recently, he achieved what had been a lifelong dream of starting his own business, when Pure Country Transport began operations.  He also did some tree service work along with his nephew Ricky.    

In addition to his wife Brenda, Scott is survived by his daughter, Ashley (Mickey Churchill) Absher of Wakeman; step daughters, Kayla Rothgeb of New London and Ashley (Travis Cook) Fincham of Monroeville; grandchildren, Lexie, Nathan and Jonathan Absher, Destinie Rothgeb, Serenity and Trinity Hale and Gunnar Fincham; siblings, Cynthia (Larry) Alvey of Indiana, Kevin (Annette) Bond of Bellevue, as well as several nieces and nephews.    

In addition to his parents, Scott was preceded in death by his stepchildren, Jessica Wright and Matthew Stieber and uncle, Tom Bond.      

Visitation will be Friday, January 14, 2022 at Norwalk Baptist Church, 2084 US-20, Norwalk, from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. and again on Saturday, January 15, 2022 from 3 p.m. until the time of the 4 p.m. service (also at the church) with Pastor Rich Forman officiating.  Scott loved his church family and his pastor.   Memorial contributions may be made to the family through a “Go Fund Me” account that has been setup or to the funeral home in care of the family, or to the Norwalk Baptist Church.  Scott will be cremated and laid to rest in North Fairfield Cemetery at a later date with military honors.  Visitors to the church are strongly encouraged to follow all current COVID19 best practices.  Online condolences to the family may be expressed by visiting
