Stanfield, C. Alpheus MD FACP
Victor: Wednesday, April 21, 2010 at his home. Alpheus was born July 26, 1927 in Hot Springs, Arkansas, the only child of Kate Martin and C. Alpheus Stanfield. He is predeceased by his son, Calvin Alpheus Stanfield, born 1970. Alpheus attended Amherst College in Massachusetts and prior to graduation served in the United States Army as a Medical Officer in the 104th Military Government Group, in Chongju, Korea (1946-1948). He was awarded a WWII Victory Medal for his service. Alpheus graduated from University of Rochester Medical School in 1953 and was Chief Resident of Internal Medicine at Strong Memorial Hospital in 1957. He completed fellowships in both microbiology and cardiology and spent a fellowship year at the Hammersmith Hospital in London, England in 1960-61. Alpheus returned to Rochester and became Chief Clinical Instructor of Highland Hospital from 1962-68. It was at Highland where he met and began a lifelong union with Stephany (Kawyn) Stanfield, his beloved wife of almost 42 years. In the late 1960's Alpheus and Stephany moved to Los Angeles, CA where Alpheus took a position at Kaiser Permanente Hospital. It was in California where they raised their family before moving back to Rochester in 1994. Alpheus was a keen big game hunter throughout his life and enjoyed almost yearly hunting trips in the Adirondacks, Northern California, Idaho and British Columbia. He was also an avid reader and spent much of his adult life studying mathematics and physics. He is lovingly remembered for his sharp wit and sparkling eyes. In addition to his wife Stephany, he is survived by his daughter Kristina Stanfield, his son-in-law Dr. John Achermann, and their children Luc and Alex, now in London, England; his daughter-in-law Joy Stanfield and her son Zachary, North Carolina; and grandchildren, Cheyenne, David, Ashleigh and Jordan of California; cousin Phillip and wife Josie Zweig; and his brother-in-law, William and wife, Helen Kawyn of Hamlin, NY.
