George Fielding

February 17, 1937 — July 31, 2020

George Ethan Fielding, of Brookfield, Ohio, was welcomed into heaven on Friday, July 31, 2020. He passed from this life at home surrounded by the love of his family. He was 83 years old.

George was born February 17, 1937, in Sharon, Pennsylvania, to parents George W. & Beatrice S. (Newton) Fielding.

George was a 1956 graduate of Brookfield High School. He served in the U.S. Army, Company D, 1st Brigade, of the 28th Infantry. He was honorably discharged, received the Good Conduct Medal, and was a M-1 rifle marksman.

Upon return, he wed Elaine R. Wagner of Brookfield. They celebrated 57 years of marriage.

George worked as a fitter for GATX, and later as a custodian and bus driver for the Brookfield School District.

George was most known as “Coach Fielding”. He invested in the lives of Brookfield youth as a football coach for over 25 years.

In his spare time, he enjoyed playing cards with friends and family, watching NASCAR, rooting for the Buckeyes and Indians.

The most important thing in George’s life was faith in Jesus Christ. He remained strong in his faith even while battling serious illness. He loved to worship at the Victory Christian Center, in Coitsville, Ohio.

Nicklas, of Brookfield, and Douglas Mark Fielding (Melanie), of Hubbard, Ohio; his grandchildren, Andrea Renee Parsley (Jordan), Alyssa Nichole Gauze (Cody), & Amanda Michele Hamerman (Joel); his great-grandchildren, Isaiah, Cadence, Jackson & Emily (twins); his siblings, Benjamin Fielding (Marilyn), Donna Curry (Howard), all of Brookfield, and Kathleen Davis, of Sharon; and his many close friends and extended family.
