Charlie Fields

November 18, 1944 - May 8, 2020

Charles “Charlie” Gray Fields passed away on May 8, 2020, in Plano, Texas, after a short but heroic battle with Cancer. He is survived by his wife, Cheryl & beloved children, Jenny Scalari (David) in the San Francisco Bay area, Stephanie Hailey in the Dallas area, sister Janice Lovering (Randall) & brother Kenneth Fields (late wife Kimberly) both of Lakeland, Florida, Charlie’s home town. There are four grandchildren, Megan & Emma Scalari and Hannah & Zane Hailey.

Charlie will be remembered as a caring & kind human being to all the people he met. After growing up in Lakeland, Charlie joined the Navy & served aboard the USS Ranger. Charlie developed a successful career in Electronics sales, starting as outside sales & growing to Regional Manager Status with a large Electronics Company. His love interests, besides Cheryl, included golf, fishing, gardening & of course animals large or small.

Charlie will be missed, but in keeping with his love of animals, donations may be made to Best Friends Animal Society in his honor: A private Memorial Service was held May 14, 2020, at Turrentine-Jackson-Morrow, Ridgeview Memorial Park in Allen, Texas.

Uncle Charlie, Although we didn’t get to see each other very often due to living in different states, I always remember your visits. They were filled with amazing stories of your time in the navy and of course lots of jokes! You always did an amazing job at keeping up with what was going on in our lives and our children’s lives on Facebook. You will be missed dearly but you memory will live on. We love you and are happy you are no longer in pain and getting to celebrate your eternal life in heaven. Diana Golan, May 16, 2020 Charlie was a wonderful brother. I am four years older so I didn’t “appreciate” him until I was in high school, guess I matured some. He was good at baseball but especially good at track. He won many awards for the fastest runner. Charlie loved to fish even as a little boy, he was known to skip school a few times to go fishing. He loved Cheryl, his children and grandchildren, had some very special friends and he and Ken had a very close bond even being 13 years apart. Charlie enjoyed golf and had some special golf buddies. Thanks Julie, Connie, Cindy and others who helped so much these past six months. Charlie will be greatly missed! Janice Lovering, May 16, 2020 Dad, we will miss you but your memory lives on! Love you!!! Jen, May 16, 2020 J.B. and I miss Charlie so much. He was a dear friend to both of us. We are here for Cheryl, and we are praying for the whole family. We love you Charlie!
