Bonnard Edward O'Neal, 90, passed away on Friday, July 17th, 2015 surrounded by members of his family.

Bonnard was born February 18, 1925 in Parma, Missouri and raised by his large family in Blytheville, Arkansas. At the age of 18, he enlisted with the Army Air Corps and served as a pilot in World War II and in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War. He married the love of his life, Paula Covington, in 1950, and returned from active duty to move to Southern California in 1955 in pursuit of a career. He found work at Texaco Inc., eventually becoming the Director of Labor Relations, prompting another move to Texas in 1970, and finally settling in the Houston/Conroe area. Bonnard was an avid golfer, a lover of new technology, and a voracious reader of historical events. His greatest joy was spending time with his family.
