Contributor: MDSIMS Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

By Rae Ann Fielding Christensen "Dad was working in Filmore. Mom, Shirley and I went and stayed at a campground with him. We had gone for a ride and just got back to the campground. As we stepped out of the car there was a rattlesnake right there. Wayne G. shot it with his pistol. It was scary. The snake had it's rattlers shaking and was ready to strike. Dad & Wayne cooked up the rattlesnake meat."

Dad's Dumptruck

Contributor: MDSIMS Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

By Rae Ann Fielding Christensen "I loved to hear the clang of dad's dumptruck each day as he would come home from work. I didn't like it when he went away for a week or two at a time."

Mowing the Lawn

Contributor: MDSIMS Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

By Bryant Sturdevant "I remember this one time Grandma Noleen (Cox) told me to go mow grandpa Fielding's lawn. She said, "Make sure he pays you." So obediently I did and finished the job and I said to grandpa, "Grandma said you'll pay me." He went inside and he took the jar from the cupboard and dumped a handful of coins into my hands and said, "there you go." I went home and counted two dollars and something cents. I thought, "FOR TWO HOURS?!" It took a while and little money from Grandma Noleen before I figured out why."

Planting Tomatoes

Contributor: MDSIMS Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

By Renae Sturdevant "Planting tomatoes on the planter was always fun with grandma and grandpa. Grandma would sing and tell stories. Grandpa was so funny one time when a mouse ran up his pant leg. I have never seen anyone so scared before or since. He danced around shaking and moving. He was starting to take down his overalls when the mouse finally ran out."

Creative

Contributor: MDSIMS Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

By Angie Martin Stevenson "Grandpa was so creative with his ways to help grandma. When it was time to feed grandma he would put one of his hats on her head and then tie a string to it and wrap it around the door knob. This would keep her head upright so he could feed her."

Stories from Grandpa

Contributor: MDSIMS Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

By Stacy Martin Hock "Grandpa Fielding spent so many days sitting in his yard, under the shade tree telling us his stories. All of his stories were about how he was able to help someone, or how wonderful others were, or the qualities he saw in everyone. He never had a bad word to say about anyone."

Popsicles

Contributor: MDSIMS Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

By Abby Martin "Grandpa would always give me popsicle whenever I would come over. When grandma Shirley went to cut grandpa's hair I would always make sure I went with her to go see great-grandpa. I always played marbles and watched football."

Chimes

Contributor: MDSIMS Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

By Lauren Sturdevant Coombs "Every year at Christmas my grandma Noleen would want us to go play great-grandpa and great-grandma songs on the chimes. I sure love and miss them both as well as my grandma Noleen."

Dump Truck

Contributor: MDSIMS Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

By Shaun McCabe " I used to love to ride in grandpa's big dump truck. We would often swing by their house while our family was in town and let me take a few trips loading gravel and dumping it out at the refuge. He would always stop at Warren's and get us a root-beer float. My favorite trip was when Grandpa rolled through a stop sign (no other drivers near) and said, "S-T-O-P slow."

Love

Contributor: MDSIMS Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

By Nicole Christensen "I always noticed what great care grandpa took of grandma and the love they had for each other."

The Hose

Contributor: MDSIMS Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

By Shaun McCabe "When I was younger, 10-12 years old or so, grandpa told me the dirt in the garden was very sandy. He said that it was possible to push a running hose into the dirt so far that you could never get it out. Then he slowly walked away from the garden but kept watching me from afar as I tested his words. He KNEW he would have to cut the hose off if I stuck it too far in the ground, but let me do it anyways. As soon as the sandy ground grabbed hold of the 4 feet of hose I had shoved in the ground there was no way of pulling it out again. I have never seen him laugh so hard as he did then."

Funny Phrases from Grandpa

Contributor: MDSIMS Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

By Torie Sturdevant "Oh bless your heart." By Chantel Christensen Cowdin "You ain't just a woofin" "Hello, hello, hello, hello" (He would randomly have to check if his hearing aide was working.)

Baseball

Contributor: MDSIMS Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

By Kathy Fielding "Grandpa Nolan loved baseball! As he got older it was really hard for him to get out and walk on grass to see the grand kids play so one day Lee & I surprised him and took him in his wheelchair to see The Raptors play at Lindquist Field in Ogden. He smiled from ear to ear each moment that he was there but the best part was during the 7th inning stretch. The song "Take Me Out To The Ball Game" was being sung by the crowd grandpa sang the very loudest. When it got to the part of "Peanuts popcorn and cracker jacks" his arm was just swinging with the tune and grinning with pure delight. After the game, grandpa told us stories about his baseball memories when he played and told us this day of the Raptors game would like in infinity (at least for him). I sure love that man."

First Impressions

Contributor: MDSIMS Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

By Patrick McCabe "When I first met Nolan, when I picked Carol up for our first date, we had pulled out of the driveway when I saw Nolan walking from the barn toward the house. I pulled over to the side of the road, got out and walked over to introduce myself. I got a big smile from Nolan and soon was first in line for his daughter's hand in marriage. Good first impressions are so important."

Just a baby

Contributor: MDSIMS Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

By Maylie Christensen "One day when I was a baby , Grandpa Fielding came over with my Grandma Rae Ann to see me at my house and held me. I know he loved me."

Overalls

By: Brandon Wilson Grandpa Fielding's railroad striped overalls.

Baseball

Contributor: MDSIMS Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

By: Shane Christensen I used to visit grandpa during the day and watch Atlanta Braves baseball games. He loved to talk baseball and tell stories. It always amazed me how good he could rememeber details from years ago. Grandpa would always have a job for me to do when I came to visit. More than once he would have me climb his huge trees to trim branches. He would stand at the bottom and point with his cane which branch he wanted cut. It's amazing neither of us were injured, but the tire swing survived for a long time. He would have me go take a sip of well water when I got hot.

Testimony

Contributor: MDSIMS Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

By: Lynette Wilson My favorite memory of grandpa was when we were heading home from camping at Hebcan Lake. It was a Sunday and we were traveling home through Yellowstone and Jackson. I just remember we stopped along the road to camp for the night and we had a testimony meeting. I remember that being the only time I ever heard grandpa bear his testimony and when he stood the mighty Teton Mountains were right behind him. He was a might man in my life.

Dating Noleen

Contributor: MDSIMS Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

By: Gordon Cox With a little hesitation they let me date Noleen. My memory isn't to good but they would always go camping and fishing, and we loved their influence in our lives.

Singing

Contributor: MDSIMS Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

By: Sherrie Russell Grandma would always give the best tickles and was the best supporter of Shirley, I , Rae Ann, and Renae when we would sing. She would listen while we practiced. As we would get back from ice skating she would warm our feet with her hands and she always had helping hands. The pj's she would make for Christmas were awesome. Grandpa was always smiling and loved working in the outdoors and we all love that now. We were always welcomed at his house and would always have us a treat...he was a treat.

Nolan Wayne Fielding was 15 years old when Babe Ruth becomes the first baseball player to hit 500 home runs in his career with a home run at League Park in Cleveland, Ohio. George Herman "Babe" Ruth Jr. was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball (MLB) spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935. Nicknamed "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat", he began his MLB career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting records, including career home runs (714), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), slugging percentage (.690), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164); the latter two still stand as of 2018. Ruth is regarded as one of the greatest sports heroes in American culture and is considered by many to be the greatest baseball player of all time. In 1936, Ruth was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its "first five" inaugural members.

The Great Depression was a severe worldwide economic depression that took place mostly during the 1930s, beginning in the United States. The timing of the Great Depression varied across nations; in most countries it started in 1929 and lasted until the late-1930s. It was the longest, deepest, and most widespread depression of the 20th century. In the 21st century, the Great Depression is commonly used as an example of how far the world's economy can decline.
Nolan Wayne Fielding was 26 years old when The Holocaust: The first prisoners arrive at a new concentration camp at Auschwitz. The Holocaust, also referred to as the Shoah, was a genocide during World War II in which Nazi Germany, aided by its collaborators, systematically murdered some six million European Jews, around two-thirds of the Jewish population of Europe, between 1941 and 1945. Jews were targeted for extermination as part of a larger event involving the persecution and murder of other groups, including in particular the Roma and "incurably sick", as well as ethnic Poles and other Slavs, Soviet citizens, Soviet prisoners of war, political opponents, gay men and Jehovah's Witnesses, resulting in up to 17 million deaths overall.

The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
