Christopher Stephen Field
July 3, 1982 - November 3, 2021
The world became a brighter place on the day Chris Field was born. When the blue-eyed bundle was born to Kathy and Steve Field, Team Field was complete. He rolled over for the first time as a newborn in the hospital. His mother was thrilled that she had another child with pizazz.
Chris latched onto his big brother Mike, and “The Boys” were a force growing up together on Edgar Road and Wade Street. It was all about Big Wheels, beach days, and backyard fun. Big sister Erin was in awe of the bond between her younger brothers.
Chris’ energy and talents could not be contained at Hatherly Elementary School – when assigned to create a “pinch pot” in first grade, he instead sculpted a skateboard dude. He excelled as an athlete and won the Turkey Race in both 5th and 6th grade.
Chris moved on to Scituate High School and graduated in 2001 despite never returning that Spanish book. After that he went to the School of Real Life, quickly moving to the head of the class.
These were transformative years for Chris. He honored the life of his best friend, Mike O’Connor. He became a Friend of Bill. He took to the dance floor at family weddings with his brother and cousins to make sure the party started.
Chris graduated from Massachusetts College of Art and Design in 2012 in with a degree in Industrial Design and went on to achieve professional success at Altitude. He was the founder of Field of Motion; “using motion graphic design, animation, illustration and design thinking to help teams share their visionary ideas.” Most recently, Chris spent time in Providence, Rhode Island and Fall River, Massachusetts where he was embraced by the artists in the community.
“Uncle Fun” welcomed his nieces Maddie, Katie, Hailey, Fiona, and nephew Oliver with complete adoration. He enjoyed connecting with each of them through toys, movies, art, and stories.
Chris Field loved his birthday, coﬀee, good food, being part of a big family, basketball, documentaries, concerts, creating art, viewing art, sneakers, talking, Maria’s subs (large chicken salad with melted provolone and pickles), playing drums, fireworks, telling stories, dogs (especially Ziggy), and much, much more….
It is important to acknowledge that Chris confronted his aﬄictions with mental illness and addiction with courage. Team Field will always be proud of him for that.
Please join us in giving Chris a heartfelt tribute and beautiful send oﬀ. He would love for you to wear your coolest sneakers to the celebration of his life.
