Obituary Condolences

Fields Virgil Fields Sr., age 76, ended his brave and brutal battle against lung and brain cancer on Wednesday, April 19, 2017. His fight lasted since May 2016, when he was first diagnosed. Virgil had a deep love of life and people. His charm, wit and personality gained him many friends. He is survived by five children, Glenda (Robert) Foster, Virgil Fields Jr., Chris (Lynn) Cook, Troy Fields, Karen (Stivi) Nechovski; 15 grandchildren; 21 great grandchildren; five siblings; numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his first wife Delores, who was killed in an auto accident in 1965 at the age of 25, both parents, two brothers and a grandson. Virgil was born in Logan, WV, number 6 in an eventual family of eight children. The family relocated to Columbus in 1954. Virgil attended South High School and held various jobs before becoming a master mechanic in both front end work and general automotive repair. He loved cars and spent many years racing at Columbus Motor Speedway and other area tracks. Though he was brought up in a churched family, he was absent from church for most of his adult years. He began attending Grace Ministries and was moved by the love shown to him. He accepted Christ and was baptized in March 2017. Virgil's family wishes to extend a very special thanks to his oncologist, Dr. Yadav and staff, the Grant Hospital infusion clinic nurses, Kindred Hospice and the many friends and relatives who visited and prayed on his behalf. Family will receive friends Saturday from 10:30 a.m.-12 noon at the MAEDER-QUINT-TIBERI Funeral Home, 1068 S. High St., where services will follow at 12 noon. Internment Obetz Cemetery. A reception will follow internment at Grace Ministries, 464 Rathmell Rd. To view on-line video sign the register, visit www.MaederQuintTiberi.com
