Evan Eugene Fields was born on August 31, 1987, in Fresno, CA. He moved with his father, Billy Fields and mother, Pam Gold to Salt Lake City in 1992. He graduated from Brighton High School in 2005. In 2012, his precious son, Hunter was born. He loved Hunter with all of his heart and shared with him his love of hunting and fishing and the peacefulness of Corinne, UT where his father, Billy lived.
In 2016, Evan and his fourth-grade love, Jessica Gilmore, reunited and became engaged in December 2017. In August 2018, Maverik was born. Evan and Jess gave us not only Maverik but her two daughters, Vaeh and Kendilyn.
Evan had his struggles but found recovery and in that helped so many to find theirs. He worked as a Peer Recovery Coach at USARA for 5 years. Evan impacted so many lives, too numerous to count. He was always hopeful, kind, loving, supportive and good to so many.
Evan loved the outdoors, something his dad instilled in him at a very early age. He lived for duck season and elk hunting. He became a certified pyrotechnician and enjoyed many years of providing fireworks shows during July. His friends and family all gathered to help and to watch with pride at the fireworks displays he put together.
Evan is survived by his mother, Pam Gold, stepfather, Todd Gold, father, Billy Fields, step mother, Becky Fields, sisters, Ashley Gold and Hannah Fields. His amazing and loving fiancé, Jessica Gilmore, stepdaughters, Nevaeh and Kendilyn. Near and dear to his heart and ours are his two beautiful sons, Hunter and Maverik.

Pam, Jess, & Family,
Evan was so loved and admired by so many. He made such an impact on the recovery community and there will never be another Evan with his big smile that lights up a room. He made a true difference in this world and will be missed terribly. ❤️
Pam, Todd and Ashley,
I cannot even imagine the grief in your hearts now. Evan touched many lives and in my eyes is a hero. Many years back, he took Stephen under his wing when he was struggling with drug use, depression, and anxiety. That had more of an impact on him at the time than anything else I had tried. It definitely helped him through a very rough time and very well may have saved his life. Certainly Evan saved many lives; he was so generous as he used his life experiences to help others down better paths. I know I am forever in his dept. All my love goes to you,
I worked with Evan in the University Hospital emergency department & Bridge Clinic when he was a recovery coach with USARA. We social workers considered him an equal colleague, such a delight to work with. He was so good! I know he saved lives through this work. I remember hearing him talk about how much he loved his family. I'm incredibly sad he is no longer with us. My deepest condolences to his family
You held a special place in my heart! I will love you and will miss you always!
He was a bright star and gone too soon My heart goes out to you. My you find peace in the time he shared with us. He was an advocate for all those in recovery. I will never forget him!
Love and prayers. So sorry to all of you for this loss.
