Was saddened to hear of Grant's passing. We graduated from LHS together in 1955 and shared a common passion for flying. Mine was all Air Force. I actually got to ride the jump seat on one of Grant's 757 flights from Atlanta to DC.

Our prayers go out to the Fields family.

with love, Bill and Mary Elizabeth Kehler

Condolences to Captain Fields' Family and Friends.
I am sure he was in command of many EAL B-757 flights I flew on as an employee from 77-87 and thank him for his many years of service at EASTERN .
RIP. Captain Fields
