    I have many fond memories of Wayne Field as my journalism teacher at Lodi High. I learned a great deal from him. I later decided to continue my love of journalism in college by moving into Advertising which I majored in at San Jose State. I also had the honor of knowing the Field Family (Margery Field was my teacher in 8th grade English); and David and I went through school together (taught me how to operate a film projector). My main interaction with this lovely family was through my church. They were always involved at everything for the Lodi First United Methodist Church. Mr. Fields loved the Ice Cream Socials. That's why I was so tickled to buy his book recently when he updated the history of our church with so many great stories and elements of which I was not totally aware. Wayne Field's legacy is that he always gave back more than he took. He always found a way to contribute something to the picture. What a lovely lesson we could all learn from his life. God Bless you Mr. Field. You will be missed! Donna Ehrhardt Mann

    To his children and family...I'm so sorry for your loss. Your Dad was my teacher at George Washington in 5th Grade and I was lucky to have him for Journalism at Lodi High. I graduated in 64' and he was the greatest teacher. I remember a Reunion at Hutchins St Square, many classmates were asked which teacher stands out, and several mentioned him. A couple of years ago, some classmates gathered to pay tribute to a student of his ( John Steacy ) and we invited him, and he was there. He will be so missed by so many that knew him.
    With sincere thoughts and prayers,
    Patsy Gundershaug Lithco
