Elijah James Field of Osceola, died unexpectedly May 5, 2020, at the Fairview Wyoming Hospital. He was 21.
Elijah was loved for his old soul, sense of humor, and his quick wit. He was kind, funny, intelligent, spirited, and warm. Eli always made sure the people around him were taken care of. His sarcasm was often nearly undetectable and he liked to joke around with people constantly. He was learning how to cook healthy foods and was interested in trying new techniques and seasonings. Eli loved to play basketball and enjoyed taking walks to handle tough emotions. Eli had a love for music and often used music as an outlet and coping mechanism to handle his troubled soul.
Elijah struggled with sobriety and his mental health after losing his brother; losing Isaiah affected their entire family profoundly. Eli recently found sobriety. Unfortunately, addiction is an everyday struggle, and Eli faced much heartache. He could not always overcome his addictive tendencies, though he fought hard for sobriety and peace. Elijah will be dearly missed by a vast array of friends and family.
Elijah was preceded in death by his great-grandmother, Sue Cronick; grandmother, Sharon Cronick and brother, Isaiah.
Elijah is survived by his parents, Aaron and Hailey Cronick-Field; grandparents, Steve (Debbie) Field, Ralph Tracy; aunts and uncles, Deseray Cronick, Aisha (Ray) Ingberg, and Courtney (Corey) Donovan; cousins, Veronica, Ian and Lenora Ingberg, Jordyn and Ben Donovan; and many other relatives and friends.
In the future, there are plans for a Celebration of Life, for all that knew and loved him. Details to follow.
Eli’s family would like to thank the community, and their friends and family, for the continuous love and support they’ve received.
An update will be provided for people wishing to contribute donations, in remembrance of Elijah.
A celebration of life is pending at the time. Arrangements are with the Grandstrand Funeral Home in Osceola. Condolences may be expressed online at www.grandstrandfh.com.
