WASHINGTON – A. Dewey Bond, 87, former senior vice president of the American Meat Institute (A.M.I.), died on May 25 in Great Falls, Va., where he had lived for many years.

Although Mr. Bond worked for A.M.I. for more than 30 years, he continued his service to the industry as executive secretary for the National Meat Canners Association for almost a decade after his A.M.I. retirement.

“Dewey was a dedicated individual who always put the association and its members before himself,” said James Hodges, A.M.I. executive vice president. “He leaves a legacy of exemplary service to the industry and will be sorely missed.”

Mr. Bond is survived by his wife, Jean Jensen; daughters, Philinda Collins, Laurel Ellzey, Carolyn Bannister and Sylvia Donovan; and 11 grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m., at Great Falls Methodist Church, in Virginia, on June 5.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Heifer International or Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Arrangements were made by Money and King Funeral Home (http://www.moneyandking.com/).
