   Mr. Fielder, age 96, of Dickson,TN died peacefully May 7, 2016 at Dickson Health and Rehab.

He was a member of the  Dickson Cumberland Presbyterian Church. He was married to the former Maggie Mai Wills Fielder for almost 70 years, she died in 2011.
   Mr. Fielder lived a simple life which to him it made it a better life.  He was a man with patience and kindness for those around him.  His gentle kindness always made those around him very comfortable. He had that special gift to be able to fix most anything, using what he had to work with. Mr. Fielder was a great gardner. One could view the fruits of his labor during the harvest season on West Chestnut. He believed it wasn't the great amounts of money one might make, but it was how you handled it when you got it.
