Edward Fields 1927 - 2012
Homer Edward Fields, 84, of Cottonwood, Arizona went home to be with his Lord on January 7, 2012 with his wife Gertrude (Trudy) of 63 years and family at his side.
Born and raised in Lynchburg, Virginia, Homer served with distinction in Okinawa, Japan in the U.S. Army. Homer returned home after military service to marry his lifetime love and partner Trudy.
A skilled machine operator, he worked for various industrial manufacturing facilities in North Carolina before moving to Hampton, Virginia. Employed by Newport News Ship Building, he was part of a team that built various ships, nuclear aircraft carriers and submarines during his career.
Homer and Trudy relocated to Cottonwood five years ago. Homer is survived by his wife, Trudy; his daughter Sandra and son in law Robert Malloy and granddaughter Laura Michelle of Cottonwood, son Danny and his wife Linda of Milford, Pennsylvania and grandson, Brian Plessinger of Atlanta, Georgia.
Three things defined Homer’s life. They were church, family and friends. His devotion was demonstrated by how he lived his daily life. His love and service to his Lord and savior Jesus Christ was the cornerstone of his faith and concluded with love for his family and friends. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends but will always be in our hearts.
A funeral service will be held on Wednesday January 11, 11AM at Clarkdale Baptist Church, 1051 SR 89A. Viewing will be prior to service at 10AM. Final interment will be at the National Memorial Cemetery of Arizona on Thursday, January 12 at 10 AM in Phoenix. In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to Clarkdale Baptist Church.
