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.

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.
Young Funeral Home has been entrusted with the care of Mr. Diamond and his family.
