December 27
The Wake Forest News has posted a nice story about Chief Fields passing. He had recently survived a heart attack and subsequent bypass surgery, when he died suddenly on Christmas morning. He joined the department in 1984, notes the story, and everyone described him as a "big guy with a big heart." He was one of the top "call runners" for the past decade, assisting at more than half of all calls in the district. Notes the story, his ninteen year-old daughter Emily recently joined as a volunteer. He last ran a call on December 12, at a motor-vehicle accident on Highway 1. Read the story.
