Edward “Huck” Fields

(Nov 30, 1926 to Jun 18, 2012)

Uncle Huck was the “go to” uncle for all of his nieces and nephews. Whether it was trips to the zoo or Phillies games or a myriad of other events, Uncle Huck was always there. He delighted in telling stories of bygone years. “How bout that coffee and ice cream?” he’d always ask, wanting his nieces to serve it. He was one of 13 children. All eight of his brothers served during war time and all returned home. Due to his small size it took Huck several tries to get into the army, but he persevered until he was allowed to enlist. rnLater years found him being the life of the party at the Moorestown Lutheran Home entertaining with stories and calling bingo. He loved the history channel and college football and cheered for Penn State and Notre Dame. rnHe is survived by his brothers, Walt and Harry, many nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews and great-great nieces and nephews, cousins and friends.rnCome celebrate 85 great years Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. at Visitation B.V.M. Church, 2625 B Street, Philadelphia. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:00 a.m.rnrnArrangements by Sweeney Funeral Home, Beverlyrn

    It is with great sadness that I learned of Uncle Hucks passing.nUncle Huck gave me some great memories. When I came to visit Mark he was the first of Dads family I met and he made me feel so welcome and at home. Then he made the trip with Marriette, Margret and Ron and came to my home in England. He made me feel so good just to have him there. He was such a special person. God Bless Uncle Huck Rest in Peace

    Uncle Huck, I love you so much, and I miss you already. We always had so much fun. I know you are in a much better place and pain-free. You are probably up there taking a nice long (fast) walk and having a bowl of vanilla ice-cream. I was just saying how I thought you invented speed-walking. Say Hi to the family for me. I hope to see you again someday in heaven.
