David Brack Diamond
June 8, 1967 – January 30, 2018
David Brack Diamond (Dave), 50, of Huntingtown passed away January 30, 2018 in the Upper Marlboro area due to a tragic car accident.
Dave was born on June 8, 1967 in Washington, D.C. to Brack and Pamela Diamond. He graduated from Northern High School in 1985 and went on to graduate from Frostburg State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business in 1989. He was employed at Diamond Container Corporation as plant manager for 33 years.
Dave married his wife, Rev. Christina Diamond, on September 30, 1995. He was a member of Full Gospel Assembly of God Church. For twenty-two years he loved and served his family, church, and community.
He was a great partner with his wife in ministry. They worked as a team praying for those in need, visiting those who were sick, serving communion to the Body of Christ, and teaching in Christian Education classes and Life Groups. They worked side by side for several years in the youth department, encouraging and building relationships with Calvert County’s youth. He also had ministries of his own. Whether he was an usher, greeter, nursery worker, transporting those who needed rides, or Vacation Bible School leader, he loved people. It showed in everything he did. Dave was also deeply involved with the Royal Ranger program at Full Gospel Assembly of God. He faithfully served in that ministry for over 14 years. He eventually became Outpost 74’s Senior Commander. Teaching and reaching the young boys in Calvert County for Christ was a passion of his. He enjoyed taking them camping, building pinewood derby cars with them, and teaching them Godly truths. From Pow Wows to hiking trips, Dave worked hard to take as many boys as he could. He also enjoyed being a part of the Frontiersmen Camping Fellowship. He always came home with a smile and told many stories of the wonderful relationships he developed through FCF.
His children, Jesse and Elizabeth, grew up with their father present and active in their lives. They both enjoyed their dad immensely; he was always there for them with great support and love. Dave took his role as a father very serious and invested time in his family.
Dave enjoyed the outdoors; camping, fishing, and hunting are a few hobbies that made him smile but most of all it was the relationships he had with his father, brother, uncles, cousins, family and friends while doing these things that brought him the most joy.
Survived by his wife Christina Marie Diamond, children, Jesse David Diamond and Elizabeth Pearl Marie Diamond. Father Brack Diamond, Mother Pamela Diamond and brother Stephen Diamond and many many other family and friends.
He was faithful, loving and true!
