Gary Hodges Fields, age 66, of Douglasville, Georgia passed away Thursday, September 16, 2021. He was born July 8, 1955 in Moultrie, Georgia. Gary was a graduate of Douglas County High School. He began working for the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department in 1981 and retired as a Lieutenant of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department in December of 2016. Gary was a member of New Genesis Baptist Church. He loved spending time with his family and going on cruises with his wife, Diane. In his spare time, Gary enjoyed hunting and fishing.

I will always remember Gary’s kindness. He and Diane set in front of me every Sunday at New Genesis Baptist Church and never failed to speak to me when I came in and sat down. I have missed y’all at church and didn’t realize Gary had become so sick. I will be praying for you, Diane and your family. Love you.

Gary was a good friend to us. We got to know him well while he and Diane attended New Genesis Baptist church. He was always concerned about us and about members of my family that he knew well. He was a sweetheart and had such a love for God. We will sure miss you Gary, but we know where you are and we will see you again! Rest well with Jesus. We love you and Diane so much!
