Henry worked for the state of Maine in the Department of Labor and retired from the state after 25 years. Henry also had various construction jobs. 

Henry enlisted in the Army in 1975 and retired from the Army in 1994. Henry was a proud veteran serving in the Gulf War from 1990-1991. Henry was proud of his military heritage and was proud to share that he had family members traced back to the Revolutionary War. When someone would thank Henry for his service, his answer was always a humble reply.

 Henry had many passions in his lifetime, he loved to build and fly RC planes. He could tell you all about the engine, the model and the plane's era. Henry loved music, from classic rock to jazz he would always have music on. Henry loved to make jewelry and was a giver, he especially loved to give his jewelry to others. Henry liked to fly fish and was talented at tying his own flies. Henry loved his dogs, they were his babies, Zoe, Moxie and Zion. Henry had many friends from all over and still many friends from his childhood. Henry cherished all of his friends.

 Henry was predeceased by his parents, Henry Diamond Sr and Amelia Diamond. By his son Brandon Diamond (Henry's heart was never the same after the loss of his son). His cousin Mike Diamond, who was more of a brother than a cousin to Henry.

 Henry is survived by his wife Ingrid Diamond, who stayed by his side throughout his illness. Henry found his soulmate and true friend in his wife Ingrid.  His daughter Erica Diamond, whom he was very proud of. His stepson Zackary Pinkham. His grandchildren, Amelia Diamond, Gavin and Rhett Diamond. 

Henry is also survived by his four sisters, who called him Bill.

Love, your sisters.
