The word, "diakonos," which is transliterated in our English Bibles, "deacon", means a simply a "servant."

The first deacons were Stephen, Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicolaus.

No, a married man can be ordained to any of the Holy Orders with proper permission, but every man ordained takes a vow of chastity. In other words, a married man ordained to the diaconate could not remarry if his wife died. So, no, a man already ordained as a deacon is no longer eligible to be...
