William F. “Freddie D” Diamond Jr., 62, of Washington, passed away Saturday, November 24, 2018, in Florida Memorial Hospital, Daytona, Fla.
He was born July 26, 1956, in McKees Rocks, a son of William Sr. and Frances A. McGuire Diamond of Collier Township.
Mr. Diamond lived in the Strabane and North Strabane areas for many years and had been a member of St. Patrick Roman Catholic Church, Canonsburg.
He was a 1978 graduate of The Citadel Military College of Charleston, S.C., and served with the U.S. Navy.
Fred was previously employed with A. R. Building and, at the time of his passing, was a project supervisor with Ryan Homes in Florida.
He was an outdoorsman who enjoyed hunting, fishing and watching the Pittsburgh Steelers. Freddie had a great sense of humor and a “Tim the Tool Man” personality, always repairing or redoing the homes of family, friends and sometimes people he really did not know that well.
On December 31, 2002, he married his best friend, Barbara Noll, who survives.
Left behind to cherish his memory, in addition to his wife and parents, are son James Diamond and fiancée Cindy Douglas of Port Orange, Fla.; stepson Robin Wyne of Monongahela; two brothers, Rick Diamond of Warrendale and John (Becky) Diamond of South Strabane Township; three sisters, Bev (John) Davis of Norfolk, Neb., Bonnie (John) Wilbert of Heidelberg and Sue Taraba of Imperial; and several nieces and nephews.
Deceased are two brothers, Joseph and Michael Diamond.
