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.

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.
