Dannie Robert Fields

1946 - 2021



Dannie Robert “Dan” Fields, 74, of Whitsett, N.C., passed away on March 23, 2021, due to lung cancer. He will be missed every day.

Dan was born to Paul and Louise Fields on Oct. 26, 1946, in Wayne, W.Va. He graduated from Wayne High School and Marshall University, earning a journalism degree that only sharpened his natural story-telling skills. After serving in the U.S. Army Reserve, Dan’s career took him around the country and the world, first as a reporter, then as a marketing executive. Whether Pikeville or Paris, his travels always led him back to his home: his wife of 47 years, Sue.

Dan and Sue built their life in Scott Depot, W.Va. They were long-time members of Teays Valley Presbyterian Church, where Dan served as an elder and choir member. He brought Christmas joy to countless children in foster care through his work with the church’s annual celebrations.

In 1999, Dan went to law school, graduating with his J.D. from West Virginia University in 2002. He finished his career practicing family law.

Dan’s true life’s work, though, was his family. He is loved fiercely and forever by Sue and their children: Megan Jones (Casey) of Raleigh, N.C., Erin Murphy (Shannon) of Villa Hills, Ky, and Michael Fields (Elizabeth), of Lexington, Ky. His grandchildren were not just his buddies; they were his best buddies: Alex and Eric Jones, Aidan and Delaney Murphy, Abby and Drew Fields, and Llayla, Isabella, and Christopher Lewis.

Dan is also survived by his sister, Vickie Hunter, of Wayne. He is predeceased by his parents, his brother Donnie, and his parents-in-law, Gene and Isabel Mitchell.

In lieu of a public service, the family will meet at the beach to tell their stories and write his name in the sand. We will remember who we are. Sign an online register book at

Sue, my love, thoughts, and prayers go out to you and your family.  I wish I could reach out and give you a big hug.  What wonderful memories you have to treasure of the 47 years God blessed you and Dan with.  The next time you're back in West Virginia, let's get together with Connie and reminiscence about our years together at Buffalo.  May God surround you all with His love, comfort, blessings, and peace.

We are saddened to hear of Dan's passing.  His law sign still hangs outside his office in Teays Valley, so we actually think of him frequently!  Sending condolences from former neighbors in Teays Village.
