Devon Earl “Wrench” Fields, 32, of Columbus, passed away Monday, March 9, 2015, at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis.
Born Oct. 8, 1982, in Seymour, he was the son of Rhea Dawn DeWeese Palmer and Ronnie Lynn Fields. They both survive along with his stepfather, Joseph Palmer.
On May 29, 2004, he married the love of his life, Stephanie Nicole Doty. She survives.
He graduated from Seymour High School in 2001 and attended Harrison College-Indianapolis campus, obtaining an associate degree in business organization management.
Devon then went to work at SpaceGuard Products, where he represented the Seymour company in the sales and customer service departments. He was a top-of-the-line “DAD” that loved his children, family, friends and his dog, Chewie. He was known to many as “Wrench,” as he always had a wrench in hand, willing to work on a bike or work on old cars and trucks.
He enjoyed street bike motorcycles, as he was a member and treasurer of the Dead Saints Motorcycle Club. He was a den leader for Columbus Cub Scouts Troop 509. He had an interest in firearms and was a major enthusiast of Star Wars, which he passed on down to his children.
Other survivors include two children, Annabelle Claire Fields and Harrison Montgomery Fields; his father-in-law and mother-in-law, Randy and Kim Medaris; brother, Shannon Ray O’Neal; brother-in-law, Lucas A. Doty; sister-in-law, Ariel A. Bower; and a maternal grandmother, Louise DeWeese.
A celebration will be at 2 p.m. Saturday at Voss Chapel in Seymour, with the Rev. Randy Blackburn officiating the life of Devon.
Visitation will be from 4 to 8 p.m. today and from 1 p.m. until time of service Saturday at the funeral home.
Memorials may be made to Stephanie Fields for the children’s future.
