Don was a gracious and loving man. I remember him at the occasion of the dedication of Guy Williams' star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He was the one who came out to greet all of us who were there; mingling and telling jokes. It amazed him at the number of people who remembered and loved his role in the Zorro series. Why, I don't know. His was an amazing comedic presence. He will be missed.

I did not know Mr. Diamond personally, but his outstanding comedic skills always made me laugh. I am very saddened to learn of his passing. He was delightful as Corporal Reyes on "Zorro" and always stole the show as Crazy Cat on "F-Troop." My sincerest condolences go out to wife and daughters during this difficult time.

I just read where Don Diamond died at 90! He lived a good long life. I used to watch F Troop. I had forgotten that he played Crazy Cat on that show. But he was really funny! I loved him as Corporal Reyes on Zorro. That was funny when he dressed up as a Senorita to capture Zorro. He was wonderful on Zorro. Later I was watching a MacGyver episode, titled, "The Assassin" in which Don played a priest. MacGyver played by Richard Dean Anderson, had to protect him from being killed. I was glad that they had mentioned Don in the credits as RDA was famous as MacGyver. But it was good to see him after so many years. My prayers go out to his family. He will be missed by all. Thanks Don Diamond for giving us many years of wonderful entertainment! God Bless you wherever you are!

Mr. Diamond gave so much life to Corp. Reyes in the Zorro TV series. While he appeared in other shows, for me, Zorro is where he truly made his mark. My condolences to his family.
