Missing guy from Guam

I found this article about Ben David Fieldhouse, age 49, who’s been missing from Guam for over a year. This is the first time I’d ever heard of him. I will put him on Charley and he will be my fourth case from Guam.

For Fieldhouse they’re starting to look at foul play, simply because if he disappeared from other causes like an accident, they should have found him by now. He had a bad relationship with his wife and had a pending domestic violence charge against him at the time of his disappearance, but it isn’t said whether she is a suspect or not.

    Just wondering if Guam is American territory…no reason, just curious.

      It is. Michael has a whole branch of his family that live there.

    It was confirmed in today’s PDN (Pacific Daily News) 5/12/12 that the remains of a body found in the Ritidian Cliff Line area April 19 has been idenitified as Ben Fieldhouse. No mention of how it was determined but the cause of death was stated as a suicide. Having know Ben for many years prior to his marraige I find this very difficult to grasp, however unforunately isn’t that usually the case with sucides. All I will say is that there was the pre-married Ben then the post married Ben and they were two very diffrent people which is why we lost contact I guess. I don’t think he ever used drugs or even drank alcohol, a very straight and responsible former Navy man. I do know the bicycle accident on Marine Corp Drive where he was run over by a commercial truck while riding his bike to work almost killed him and I’m sure his body was never the same. His pelvis was crushed and he ended up being flown to the PI for extensive care and therapy. I know he was from Fla and believe he still has relatives there. Very Sad news but we were pretty sure it was him ever since the annoucment of finding a remains in that location. Ritidian was one of the many beautiful areas of Guam’s outdoor nature he loved to visit, the other was the Nimitz Hill/Channel 10/Charlie Corn area.

    We miss you Ben, Hope to see you again someday!

      Hi Charlie, Don’t know if you remember me, but I was a friend of Ben’s around ’93. We worked together, my name is Amanda. I just found out about Ben. This is absolutely horrible, I didn’t know he was going through all this crap. Still hope maybe it’s not him they found and maybe he’s still alive somewhere.

      I served with Ben Fieldhouse on the USS Joseph Strauss, where he served as Quartermaster. I made contact with Ben a few years ago, and he was working as Harbor Master in Guam. He said he just married a “Guamanian Princess.”

    I’m Ben Fieldhouse’s cousin. I’m finding it very hard to believe that he committed suicide. He had two children that meant everything to him. He was such a gentile and kind person he wouldn’t hurt a fly.

    I just found out the news about Ben Fieldhouse. I was shocked and sadden to hear of the news! Ben was a good friend of mine. We lost touch when I left Guam in June 1987 when I was transferred to Japan with the Air Force, but briefly met up again when I visited Guam. Ben was the one who first got me into biking when I was sidelined with an running injury in late 1985. Ben helped me pick out my first bike at Hornet’s and took me out for training rides. He also got me to join the local Guam Bicycle Club. Man, that was fun! Ben was a great cyclist! Because of Ben introducing me to biking, I later got an interest in triathlons. I started competing in triathlons in Japan, Guam and Saipan. Eventually, I qualified and competed in the Ironman Triathlon World Championship in Kona, Hawaii in 1989 and 1991. But for me, the road to Kona started with Ben Fieldhouse who first taught me in how to ride a bike! Ben Fieldhouse was a true gentleman! My friend Ben, may God bless you always! We all miss you! Until we meet again! Rest in Peace my friend! You will always be remembered!

    I went to church with Ben when I was young, I was on island when he went missing in 2010. I went on the Two Lovers’ Point bike trail with him and one of his friends in 2003, he knew his way around those trails pretty well, so I don’t doubt that he had a reason why he chose Ritidian to end his life as it is one of the last untouched spots on Guam. A lot of weird things were happening before, during, and after his disappearance and it was easy to see why the police thought it was foul play. I wouldn’t want to mention more than that for legal reasons, but I hope his soul can rest at peace now.
    PS: Thanks to whoever added him to this registry and updated the finding of his remains, I’m sure he would have appreciated it.
