Coach Bonner was a remarkable person who fully fulfilled his purpose on earth with making sure students were both educated and equipped with being prepared for life. I had the pleasure of knowing him in several different roles for the past 40 years as a Coach, Mentor, and Employer on two occasions as a Assistant Athletic Director and as Coach for Edison Middle School. I also remember the kind words and gestures. He will truly be missed but always cherished. May The MOST HIGH continue to bless the Bonner Family through this time and in the future.

Dear Mrs. Bonner, Marci and Jennifer,

I was so saddened to hear of Mr. Bonner's passing. I will always remember him as a gentle giant, not saying too much but always there for us. He was a strong force in Israel and I will always be grateful for his presence and guidance. If there is anything I can do, please let me know.
