Arthur Diamond is my wife’s father whom she has never met. She wants and needs nothing from this man what so ever. Mr. Diamond never once laid eyes on her and missed out on a opportunity to know a beautiful person inside and out.
Thinking I was helping my wife on or about the fall of 2005 I was able to find her father Mr. Arthur Diamond who at the time lived in Hitchcock, TX.
I prompted her to call him which and she begrudgingly did so. In hindsight it was a dreadful mistake and caused more pain to my wife emotionally than never knowing her Dad or ever speaking with him. He mentioned in the 10 to 15 minute phone call that he had other children in the Midwest if I recall correctly near Chicago.
A memorable point of this first ever contact between a father and daughter was when Mr. Diamond went on to say he had health problems and was uninterested in meeting his daughter. She was devastated and this still haunts her as she recalls vividly the only thing the "stranger" on the phone made clear was his lack of interest in meeting his daughter. I was and continue to be extremely angry at him for his apparent selfishness, and at myself for making it possible for him to hurt her one more time.
While on the internet yesterday 6-21-10 she noticed an obituary mentioning a Arthur Diamond passing away in 2006.
My wife’s name is Cheryl and her mothers name is Judy, she was born in the state Minnesota in 1963. I beleive Mr. Diamond still has relatives in or around Hitchcock, TX.
Cheryl knows nothing about her Dad except she never met him and when she was able to speak with him he rejected her as in her mind he had done her entire life.
If anyone has any information on the passing of Arthur Diamond please let me know.
I found an obituary on this page: http://www.tributes.com/show/Arthur-Gus-Diamo...
I hope this helps. I am sorry for your loss and for all you've had to go through. God Bless You!
This is going to sound strange, but I too had been looking for Arthur G Diamond. I was adopted at birth in Chicago, IL and recently found out the names of my birthparents were Arthur & Gloria Diamond. To make a long story short, I have recently found Gloria, living in Chicago. When Gloria was made aware that I was looking for her, she informed her son and daughter – whom I had been in contact with- that she wasn’t actually my birthmother, as the Cook County IL adoption papers stated in 1962, but in fact a woman named Judy was my actual mother, but Arthur was my father. Can it be that Cheryl and I may be related? If you read this, please write back…
So this is going to be strange, too! I have just recieved a copy of my original birth certificate and my biological parents are also listed as Gloria and Arthur Diamond. I was born in 1958.
i am the niece of Art Diamond , anyone wanting to know information about Gloria Diamond or Art Diamond you r welcome to contact me, sorry to those who contacted him during the time of his sickness and was not able to meet with anyone and died thereafter. please be aware Art was not aware of the children that were adopted out, he had knowledge of Beverly Diamond, Gary Diamond, Arther Diamond, Linda Sue Diamond, who resided in Chicago, Ill when they divorced. I did not know Judy nor heard of any children from their relationship, so if he answered anyone not able to meet with them it was because of not knowing all these years and being in a terrible state caused from the sickness he died of. Please take into consideration all true fact and not what you may have heard or been told without proof. Thank you , Charmaine Diamond my e-mail is char129@outlook,com
