Rhett J. Fields Obituary
Rhett J. Fields, 17, of Blackfoot passed away Friday, May 20, 2016 from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident.
He was born Feb. 7, 1999 the son of Clark Fields and Leisa Cox Fields.
Rhett has lived his lifetime in Blackfoot and was currently a junior at Blackfoot High School where he had won numerous awards in cabinetry and auto mechanics competitions.
He learned cabinetry skills in school from Stan Reinwald and Pete Golinveaux, and was looking forward to taking his senior auto classes from Aaron Ball. He won the state title in cabinetry and was awarded fourth place last year in the national SkillsUSA competition located in Louisville, Kentucky. Rhett took the state title again this year and was ready to compete on the national level.
He was very mechanically-minded and loved his '72 Chevy Pickup. He spent most nights and weekends working with his brothers and father in the shop, being spoiled by his sisters, and going on all kinds of adventures with his good friends. He enjoyed his guns and hunting; along with his dirt bike, and Jeep crawling. He wanted to study diesel mechanics in college. He was also very diplomatic in holding his ground when he truly believed in something.
Rhett's career started at a very early age working at any job that he could find. He really loved to work and make money for his hobbies. His first official job started when he worked for Mountain West Electric Inc., for his brother, Chad. He has been happily employed by his brother-in-law Mason, owner of MHS Cabinets, the past three years learning valuable skills that have helped with his competitions and in life. Rhett enjoyed spending many hours working on projects with his father in the shop. He enjoyed working with his hands and was a very talented craftsman and problem solver.
Rhett was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and was serving as a Priest.  He earned his Eagle Scout award in scouting. He was a light to all that knew him.
