Charles Richard Fields

February 06, 1941 ~ September 16, 2020

Charles Richard Fields, 79, of Vero Beach, passed away peacefully at his home, surrounded by his family Wednesday, September 16, 2020.

Richard was born in Walkerville, IL and has been a resident of Vero Beach for 47 years, coming from High Point, NC.

He was a United States Navy Veteran.

Richard enjoyed golf, playing horseshoes, fishing and coaching Little League baseball. He had a green thumb and could make anything grow. But his favorite pastime was spending time with his family.

Richard was a master electrician. During his long career he worked for several electrical companies and at one time owned and operated his own company. Additionally, he was an over the road trucker for many years and a genuine jack of all trades.

Survivors include his beloved wife of 59 years, Barbara Fields of Vero Beach; children, Jeffrey Fields (Karen) of Archdale, NC, Cassie Welker (Wendell) of Vero Beach, Mitzi Briggs (Griffin) of Winston Salem, NC and Curtis Fields (Cyndi) of Gainesville, FL; 10 grandchildren, Tiffany, Stephanie, Dustin, Sadie, Margeaux, Leland, Ainsley, Roxton, Jocelyn and Ryland; 5 great-grandchildren, Savannah, Connor, Mason, Emerson and Corben; brothers, Kenny Fields and David Fields. The impact he made on each of these loved ones will be felt forever.  He will be deeply missed and will live on in their hearts.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Visiting Nurse and Hospice Foundation, 1110 35 Lane, Vero Beach, Fl 32960 in memory of Charles Richard Fields.

Fields Family, Please accept my deepest sympathy for your loss. I always remember Mr. Fields fondly, a true gentle giant. He came to my aid one day many years ago; my first car accident. I was young, alone, and had no clue what to do. Out of nowhere there was Mr. Field’s. He was driving by and saw the situation and stopped to see if I needed help. What a welcome sight. I was and will always be great full for his kindness. Rest In Peace Mr. Fields. Prayers for Peace and Comfort to the family. Sincerely, Kimberlie Tallman Peterson

Dear Fields family,
I am so sorry for your loss. Richard was a wonderful man! I remember coming to Vero Beach a couple of times. The first time, my oldest son was less than two years old! The second time he was a young man! We had a wonderful time visiting with all of you. I know he will be truly missed!
FYI (I was married to his brother David.)

Mr. Fields,
It was a LONG time ago that I had an opportunity to get to know you and and one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met, your wife Barbara. Ironically, alot of those times was when Curtis and myself got into trouble back in the day, esp when we driving your or my parents car in high school. Take comfort knowing that people will miss you and those same people appreciate the value you’ve added to thier life.
To the rest of the Fields Family , Jennifer, Craig, Aubrey and myself give you our deepest sympathy towards you and your family.
While Mr. Fields will be missed by you and others…its ONLY temporary. Until then Mr. Fields, you will be missed!

Much love to you all. ❤

The Ellis Family

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
