Samuel James Bondurant


Our beloved son, brother, uncle & friend, Samuel Bondurant, went home to his heavenly father on March 1st, 2019. Sam had a conversation with the Lord and was confident that he heard Him say, “If you are ready, come home good and faithful servant for I have prepared a place for you”.

Sam was born on November 28th, 1947 to Octava & James Bondurant.  He attended schools in Park City & Laurel until going into the Job Corp. After completing the Job Corp he lived in Columbus & Laurel working at the Sugar Beet Factory and trimming trees. He moved to Livingston in his early years & was proud to become the best dishwasher in town. He was married to Marie Whetner briefly in 1981 but divorced later that same year.

He never had children of his own but thought of all his nieces & nephews as his own. He lived in Livingston until 3 years ago when his health was declining so he moved to Billings to live closer to family members.

Sam was preceded in death by his grandparents, many aunts & uncles, his baby brothers & his Father, James Bondurant. Sam is survived by his Mother, Octava Bondurant, his sisters Myrtle Jane Davis & Bertha Holbrook and his brother Phillip Bondurant also his nieces & nephews: Nona Taggart, Randy Pastian (Tia), Jeff Davis, Sandy Crandall (Steve), Roy Pastian (Heather), Tirani Pastian (Johnny), Bill Davis (Nancy) & Nettie Davis plus numerous great-nieces & nephews & great-great nieces & nephews.
