Danny L. Bonner
Danny Lee Bonner, 56, of Martinez, GA, passed at Doctors Hospital, Augusta.
Danny Lee Bonner was born to Dorothy Harris Bonner and James Albert Bonner Sr. on Sunday, June 5, 1960 in Fort Lauderdale, FL. From ‘labor to reward,’ he passed away on March 9, 2017 at the Doctors Hospital in Augusta, GA. He is preceded in death by his father, James Albert Bonner, Sr.
On his life’s journey, he was a member of McKinney Branch Baptist Church of Waynesboro, GA. Danny received his childhood education by attending the Sunset Elementary School and Broward Middle School, both of Fort Lauderdale, FL. His family moved to Georgia in 1973. While living in Georgia, he attended the R. L. Norris Jr. High School of Thomson, GA. On January 30, 1986, Danny married the love of his life, Mary Ellen Wiley Bonner. To this union, two children were born. In August of 1986, Danny was hired by the McDuffie County Board of Education in Thomson, GA. Gainfully employed for over 30 years until his untimely passing, Danny was a dedicated head-custodian at the R. L. Norris Elementary School in Thomson, GA.
During his spare time “Dan” as he was affectionately called by family and friends, spent a great deal of it fishing. Although fishing was his passion, he enjoyed family-outings and spending quality time with his grandkids. In this life Dan had many titles. He was a son, a brother, a father, a grandfather, an uncle, and a friend to many; but, the most cherished title of them all was him being ‘a husband.’
Those left behind to keep his memory alive: a devoted wife of 31 wonderful years, Mary Wiley Bonner; two sons, seven grandchildren, a loving mother, Dorothy Bonner of Thomson, GA; four sisters, three brothers, a special brother-in-law, a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and many sorrowing friends.
