Kirby Diemond was a loving husband to his wife Ashley and a fantastic father to their three beautiful children. After a year-long battle with Leukemia, Kirby said goodbye to his family for the last time. He was only 26 years old.
Hailey (age 5), Brody (age 3) and Jase (1 year) will never truly know what a wonderful man their father was. He was the kind of person who could light up a room with kindness and laughter. Above all else, Kirby valued the people he loved, and brought joy to everyone around him. He was truly the definition of a family man.
While Ashley was still recovering from the birth of Jase, Kirby joined her in the hospital. But on this particular day he did not sit next to Ashley's hospital bed: he was given a bed of his own. A heartbreaking diagnosis quickly followed: Kirby had a rare form of Leukemia.
He faced his diagnosis with strength and determination. The year that followed was filled with trips to the hospital, restless nights and treatment after treatment. But even on the darkest days his Faith and positive spirit never wavered. The day came when Kirby's body could no longer withstand fight and on July 24, 2013, his battle with Leukemia came to a tragic end.
Until his very last day, one thing remained constant "“ the love and commitment Kirby and Ashley had for each other and their children. As they face a future without Kirby by their side, the Diemond family needs love and support now more than ever.
