Earl Allen Canfield
March 1, 1949 – November 14, 2022
Earl Allen Canfield, 73 years old, of South Chesterfield, passed away on Monday, November 14, 2022, in his home.
Al or Allen, as he was often called, will always be remembered as a jokester and someone who was willing to give you his two cents. Throughout his military career, he was able to show his family various cultures and customs. Among the favorites are South Korea, Qatar, and Germany.
Al is survived by his wife, Hilda; his two sons, Eric and his wife, Marta, and Michael; and his brother, Charles, and his wife, Barbara, and daughter Jennifer. He was preceded in death by his parents, Betty and Paul Canfield.
The interment will be private.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Salvation Army.
I will forever miss you Pop!
It was an honor to have met you, Mr. Canfield
Thank you for your Service in the same Army and era as my Father. Your entire family have always being gracious hosts to us as guests. You can take pride in your wonderful wife and you raising two upstanding sons, I am fortunate to call friends.
May you Rest in Peace, and may the Good Lord comfort your loved ones in their time of need.
I hired Al on my team in Qatar in the early 2000s and so glad I did! He was the life of the team and made every work day interesting. He was very well accomplished in his professional capacity and then he became a great friend. I remember on many trips back and forth from VA to SC with my family, Al and Hilda insisted we stop at their home for coffee which was always wonderful. Al gave us a plant from his yard that still thrives here in SC. Deepest condolences to his friends and family.
