David was born in Bay City, Texas to Raymond and Loreta Fields. He and his wife Joyce Elaine Green have shared almost thirty years of marriage and in this union have raised three daughters, Lara, Amanda, and Jessica. After retiring from a successful career with the US Postal Service, David found his love of candle making, and with Joyce, he founded The Candle Box Shop in College Station. He enjoyed traveling to Alaska, London, Paris, and especially Fredericksburg, Texas. David always enjoyed being in the kitchen cooking for his family. He was an avid reader of both fiction, as well as his bible, who inspired the girls to enjoy discovering the unknown through reading. His wife says she will miss watching movies with David as they enjoyed this time together. David was proudest of his family as husband and father. He was a devoted Christian, and a member of First Baptist Church Bryan.

David’s legacy continues in his wife Joyce Fields; his daughters Lara McKinney and husband Gordon, Amanda Medack and husband Len, Jessica Moerbe and husband Bradley; David’s brother Richard Fields and wife Louise, son Robert; David’s sister Judy Cothern and husband Doug, daughters Kristen and Stephanie; his four grandchildren Loren, Brinn, Karee, and Emily; his beloved brothers and sisters in law, and many other loved ones and close friends.

David was such a joy to care for and know this past year. He always had a smile on his face, was friendly, kind and very brave throughout his battle with cancer. I always enjoyed caring for him and talking about books we were reading and the love he had for his family.
I will miss seeing him and am very grateful to have known him. My thought and prayers to Joyce, the girls and the family. Blessings, Pam, Cancer Clinic RN
