Mark Granvil Bond

November 9, 1967 — September 5, 2021

Mark Granvil Bond, 53, of Benbrook, Texas, departed for his heavenly home on Sunday, September 5th, 2021, following a courageous and hard-fought battle with Covid-19 and pneumonia. He was born in Gainesville, Texas on November 9th, 1967 to Mickey and Martha Bond, both of whom preceded him into eternity. When Mark was fourteen, his dad bought his first guitar from a pawn shop for forty dollars. By the time he was in high school, Mark was selected to the “Who’s Who” list for stage band. Mark went on to become an incredibly gifted guitarist who used his talent to serve God and to share the message of salvation with others. In his twenties, Mark was well known in the DFW area as the guitarist for the Christian rock band Transcendence, later known as Godfear. He also played the guitar in the praise and worship band at HighRidge Church in Fort Worth for many years. Mark worked at The Guitar Center in Arlington, Texas and Fort Worth, Texas for most of his career. Likely, his job never felt like work as guitars were his passion and his Guitar Center co-workers were like family. Most recently, Mark was writing and recording new music with his good friend, Mike Foster, and as Mike shared, Mark was still “dreaming big”. He was also a devoted Dallas Cowboys fan for over 25 years. Mark was known by everyone to be a kind, honest, humble man of God who always offered a warm smile. Mark was a steadfast believer who lived his life to serve his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He built his treasures in heaven, not on earth, as the Bible instructs us to do. We know that when Mark entered the presence of Jesus, he heard, “Well done, good and faithful servant! Enter into the joy of your Lord.” More than anything, at a time such as this, Mark would want the gospel of Jesus Christ proclaimed to all who will hear. That Christ died, was buried, and rose again to pay our sin debt in full and that God promises everlasting life to all who believe. Mark leaves behind sons, Jacob Lane Bond and Austin Cameron Bond whom he loved with his whole heart and whom he led well; beloved grandchildren, Layton Bond, Charlotte Bond, and Ezra Bond; brothers, Monnie Bond, Michael Bond and wife, Carmen; sister, Martha Quiroz Puckett; daughter- in- law, Devany Bond; a nephew and several nieces, his dearest lifelong friends Michael Perkins, Guy Wakefield, and William Burgi, and countless other family and friends upon whom he made an unforgettable and cherished impact on our lives. Although we will miss Mark greatly, we’re thankful that our separation is only temporary and for this we praise the Goodness of God. I Corinthians 13 I Corinthians 15:1-4 Ephesians 2:8-9 Romans 8:28 I Corinthians 15:55-57 Graveside Memorial to be held in Gainesville, Texas. Date yet to be determined, but will be announced.
