September 20, 1942 ~ January 19, 2021 (age 78)


William T. Diamond passed through this life to make his way to his Heavenly home Tuesday, January 19, 2021.

William, better known as “Bill Tom” was born Sept. 20, 1942, a son of the late Howard and Emily Jane (Austin) Diamond.

He was also preceded in death by an infant brother, Darrell Diamond; a niece, Stacy Diamond; a nephew, Robby Brumfield; a brother-in-law, Robert Brumfield; and a sister-in-law, Edith Diamond.

Surviving members of his family include his spouse of 56 years, Karen June (Senters) Diamond; two sons, William T. Jr. “Billy” and Sheila (Stansberry) Diamond and Michael Kevin and Jaimie (Hardwick) Diamond; four grandchildren, Amanda Leigh (Robert) Fouts, William Cody (Miranda) Diamond, Austin Michael Diamond and Emily Ruth Diamond; two great-grandchildren, Shelby Reece Fouts and Joshua Tanner Fouts; a precious child whom he is watching over until time of birth, Nathaniel Robert Fouts; five siblings, Gertus Brumfield, John Diamond, Faye (Luke) Kitchen, Joseph (Alberta) Diamond and Michael (Gloria) Diamond. He is also survived by several nieces and nephews.

He was a retired school bus driver for the Lawrence County School District with 30 years of service. He was an avid gardener and always worked to provide his family with the food and supplies that they needed. From dusk ‘til dawn after retirement, he was knee deep in the mud and muck, no matter what the cost. He loved his family and will be sorely missed until we see him again.

Mr. Diamond's graveside service will be conducted Sunday, January 24, 2021 at 12:30 PM at the Diamond Family Cemetery on Fullers Ridge with Brother Greg Caudill officiating. The procession will leave the funeral home at Noon.
