Michael Archie Fields, 68, passed away December 26, 2021 in Picayune, MS. He was born September 15,1953 in Crosset, AR, the second child to James Bartow and Lora Inez (Craig) Fields. Michael grew up in Enid, OK and Hoisington, KS where he was active in track and field events, played varsity basketball and football, as well as playing the guitar. He attended Hoisington High School, graduating with the Class of 1971. After graduating, Michael joined the US Navy, serving honorably for four years. Following his discharge, Michael moved to Slidell, LA and attended the University of New Orleans. He went to work for Lockheed-Martin as a systems control mechanic and remained there for almost 30 years until his retirement. Michael is remembered as a reserved person who loved to fix and build things. A very determined man who was very much into seeing just what one person could accomplish, all by himself, Michael bought land in Mississippi, where he took on the project of a lifetime, building a log cabin. Independent and determined as he was, Michael cut down every tree he used to build his very own log cabin in the country. A labor of love, he insisted on being the sole architect, engineer, construction worker, plumber, and electrician. He passed in the log cabin that he built and loved. He loved surfing the internet doing research, including genealogy and local history, as well as taking care of his cat, Puss-N- Boots. He will be fondly remembered by all whose life he touched. Michael was preceded in death by his mother, Lora Aylor, and his father James Fields. Left to cherish his memories are: his loving wife of 42 years Georgann (Miller) Fields; their children, two daughters, Rebecca Quave of Miami, FL, and Katherine (Jonathan) Fields- Stockstill of Picayune, and sons Frederick Matthew Fields of Orlando, FL and Michael Prescott Fields of Moscow, ID; his siblings, Craig (Diane) Fields of Covington, LA, Mark Aylor and Lori Aylor, both of Slidell, LA; and a sister-in-law, Celeste Cummins of New Port Richey, FL. Michael leaves a legacy of two grandchildren, Alexander and Vivian Cargille, along with several extended family and friends through the years. His final wishes were to be cremated, which his family is honoring. A memorial service may be held at a later date. Trinity Funeral Services is honored to serve the Fields family in their time of need, asking everyone to keep them in your thoughts and prayers over the coming days.
