Richard Walter Bond passed away on August 6 at the age of 67. He was known as "the Chef" around his beloved Algiers Point and will be remembered by many as a gregarious entertainer, wonderful cook and perfect host. Richard, or Richie when he was growing up, was born and raised in Baton Rouge where he graduated from Glen Oaks Senior High School and Louisiana State University. Throughout high school he was known for his athletic ability, especially when it came to baseball. Although the early part of his career was spent in banking, when he moved to New Orleans, he pursued his true passion for cooking and opened a restaurant, L'Eagles. A career in catering and teaching cooking classes followed, and many from near and far have learned to make a perfect gumbo or delicious bread pudding by attending a class at Mardi Gras School of Cooking, which he ran from his home. He was always eager to share his talents as well as his meals with friends or anyone in need. He is survived by his daughter Emily Bond Robert and her husband Gayden, as well as many family members and friends who became his family. He is preceded in death by his parents Kathryn Trichel "Kitty" Bond and Richard Ezra "Izzy" Bond, and his sister Judy Bond Stewart Sweeney. A celebration of life will be held on Sunday, August 13 at the Old Point Bar in Algiers Point at 1 pm. The celebration will kick off at 12:45 with a second line from the ferry dock to the Old Point Bar where friends and family will celebrate his life.
