Former Canyon Lake POA Board Director and Councilman Randy Bonner, who is relocating to Tennessee this month, is leaving a parting gift to the residents of Canyon Lake — a classic Seeburg jukebox and a collection of 45 RPM records valued at more than $4,000.
The jukebox will be housed at the senior center for residents to enjoy. “I’d like to thank the Operations staff for picking it up and delivering it to the senior center,” Bonner said. It was not an easy item to move.”
Bonner purchased the classic jukebox for $500 from the previous owners of the house he bought in Canyon Lake 25 years ago. He believes the jukebox was made in the 1950s.
Bonner served on the POA Board in 2007 and 2008 and on the City Council from 2010 to 2014 and 2016 to 2020. He was appointed mayor in 2014 and 2017.
In November 2020, the City Council honored Bonner for his years of service on the City Council and 28 years of service in the Marine Corps Reserves. City staff took up a collection and purchased a military banner in his honor. The banner is featured on the light pole in front of City Hall.
Bonner served as Master of Ceremonies at Canyon Lake’s first Veterans Day Celebration and again in 2010. In 2011, he was chosen as the honorary chairman of the event.
Bonner has been a member of the Men’s Golf Club, Over the Hill Golf Club, After Lunch Bunch Golf Club, Travel Club, Yacht Club, Fine Arts Guild, and CLAMS.
“I think Canyon Lake is an incredible place to live,” Bonner said. “I’ll miss Canyon Lake and I wish everyone good health. Stay safe.”
