Dr. Joseph Bondi, father of Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, has died at age 76, following a long battle with leukemia.
Bondi, a Tampa native, died Tuesday. He had been a school teacher, administrator and college professor, and served on the Temple Terrace City Council, including a stint as mayor from 1974-78.
“My beautiful Daddy went to heaven yesterday,” Pam Bondi said Wednesday. “He was surrounded by all his family. He fought a great fight with leukemia.”
Joseph Bondi is survived by his wife of 52 years, Patsy, two daughters and a son. A service is scheduled for Sunday at Christ our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Temple Terrace.
