MILTON W. BOND
Born in Bridgeport, son of the late Wallace and Mary Bond, he had been a lifelong area resident.
Bond retired after 30 years of service as a tool maker for Remington Arms in Bridgeport. He was a self-taught artist who did reverse glass painting for more than 40 years. His critically-acclaimed work has been shown worldwide, including at the Palace of Versailles, The American Museum in Bath, England, the Smithsonian Institute, the Fennimore House, Cooperstown, N.Y., and the White House. A true master of his craft, he was considered by some to be one of the most successful reverse glass painters of all time.
Friends may greet the family Wednesday, June 2, from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Spear-Miller Funeral Home, 39 South Benson Road, Fairfield; a prayer service will conclude the visitation. Interment will be private in Mountain Grove Cemetery, Bridgeport.
