Alexandria Police are mourning one of their own today, after releasing news that longtime Parking Enforcement Officer Edward Bonds passed away from COVID-19 complications on Thursday, Jan. 28.
“APD extends our heartfelt condolences to Bonds’ family, friends, and his coworkers with the Parking Enforcement Office,” Alexandria Police said in a release. “Coworkers say Bonds loved old school R&B music and loved to sing. They say he also loved playing the lottery and apparently, was lucky and good at it.”
Bonds, who was 52, lived in Maryland and worked with Alexandria Police for 21 years. He was also an assistant coach for the T.C. Williams High School football team and was a 1985 graduate of Fort Hunt High School in the Alexandria area of Fairfax County.
His Facebook page says that he was widowed, and police said that he was a loving husband to his wife, Lethia.
Bonds is the first COVID-19-related death at APD.
Sadly the City is mourning the loss of a critical member of our @AlexandriaVAPD family.
Our thoughts are with PEO Bonds’ family during the heartbreaking time. https://t.co/H3kUVvZwwy
