CSM JOSEPH L. STRINGFIELD
COLUMBIA — July 27, 2005, a wonderful husband, great father and superior, heavily-decorated American soldier went to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Joseph Lee Stringfield, son of Lee and Jenny Byrd Stringfield, was born November 22, 1926, in Wartburg, Tennessee. He was the brother of Jack Stringfield (deceased) and Virginia Ann Stringfield Messervy. On July 12, 1952, he became the proud husband to the love of his life, Elsie Maxey Stringfield. Joseph left a legacy of a man of good character, moral excellence and virtuous integrity to his family. He is survived by his two daughters whom he adored and brought him exceeding joy, Susan Paige Hilyard and Nancy Joy Gamble, his sons-in-law Joe Hilyard and Troy B. Gamble, M.D., and his six grandchildren to whom he was totally devoted: Matthew Stephen Hilyard, Stacey Leanne (Hilyard) Watts (Joshua Meek Watts), Kristen Joy Hilyard, Paige Kirby Gamble, Joseph Adam Gamble and Samuel Maxey Gamble. Joseph and Elsie have been faithful members of First Baptist Church in Columbia, South Carolina for over fifteen years. In 1945, at the tender age of 17, Joseph joined the United States Army and was immediately sent to Occupied Japan to fight for his country during World War II. As a soldier’s soldier, he was an example to his fellow warriors by demonstrating numerous acts of bravery in times of conflict. Joseph ably completed his missions over and above the call of duty, thereby winning the respect and admiration of his peers in becoming a revered leader of men and eventually being promoted to the U.S. Army’s highest enlisted rank of Command Sergeant Major (CSM). During the Korean Conflict while a paratrooper for the 187th Airborne Division, he was engaged in the only two parachute combat jumps during the entire war. Joseph eventually earned the distinction of Master Parachutist. Joseph twice served in the Vietnam War, once with the Big Red One and later in logistics. While serving in Vietnam, he received the Cross of Gallantry with Palms. Joseph was CSM of the Canal Zone – Atlantic Side, Panama becoming an honorary member of the Green Berets. CSM Joseph Lee Stringfield eventually became one of the top 3 candidates to be nominated to serve as the nation’s CSM of the Army (E-10). His service to our country earned him numerous medals, including but not limited to, a Legion of Merit, 3 silver stars, 4 bronze stars (one with valor), and 2 purple hearts for wounds he suffered in battle. In 1974 due to health reasons and after serving in the U.S. Army for almost thirty years, Joseph retired at Fort Jackson and settled down with Elsie in Columbia, South Carolina.  The family is sincerely grateful for the loving and tender care given by Joseph’s close, personal friend, Robert Marlowe, and the personnel with Ports Bridge Hospice, especially the gracious service rendered by their friend, Charlotte Crawford. Also, the family greatly appreciates the prayers and sympathy from all our friends around the world. Please join our family in celebrating the life of an amazing man, Joseph Lee Stringfield, of whom he will forever be remembered. Viewing service is Saturday, July 30th, between 5 and 7 p.m. The memorial service is Sunday at 2 p.m. These services will be conducted at Dunbar Funeral Home, 3926 Devine St, Columbia, SC 29205. For information, please call (803) 771-7990. Joseph will be given full military honors and his body will be laid to rest at 5 p.m. Sunday in Live Oak Cemetery in Walterboro, S.C. Reverend Ray Timmerman will be presiding at both the memorial and graveside services. [Obituary posted: July 30, 2005, The Post & Courier, Charleston, SC.  [Submitted ]
