Elton Albert Fields, 91, of 2009 Ruddy Road passed away peacefully on Thursday night, January 19, 2012 surrounded by his loving family. Albert was born in December 7, 1920 in Goldsboro to the late Willie Ray Fields and Ida Wiggins Fields.

Albert bravely served our country in the United States Army in the Pacific Theater during WW II. Albert retired from Monsanto in the 1980's and then moved from Durham to Creedmoor, NC. Never one to sit still for too long Albert picked his tools back up and did work during his retirement as a plumber, painter, or just anything that needed to be done. During his spare time Albert loved to fish, hunt, and paint with his many family members and friends. Sharing time with his family was a pleasure in Albert's life.

Albert was preceded in death by his wife of 58 years, Thelma O'Steen Fields., his daughter, Thelma Louise Fields Wilson, brothers, Ray and Raymond Fields, and sister, Loraine Dennison. Albert is survived by his daughter and son-in-law, his caretakers, Gail and Skip Casey of Raleigh, son, Dennis and Erma Fields of Durham, sister, Shirley Fields Creech of Goldsboro, five grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
