Joshua was born to Cheryl Hamlin and Thomas "Dutch" Fields on Feb. 17, 1985 in Grand Junction. He passed away April 23, 2010 in Colorado Springs.
Joshua could see things as no one else could. He would put together or take apart anything you put in front of him, such as his own baby stroller at the age of four.
Joshua grew up in the Roaring Fork Valley, playing on the mountains and in the rivers, spending the majority of his life here. He is a fifth-generation local no one will ever forget.
Joshua was a loving father, caring son, great friend, an amazing husband and brother.
Joshua was a member of the United States Army stationed at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs. Joshua served from January 2008 to March 2010.
