  • This is a very sad thing for many people including myself ,my wife Karen and our 3 sons. We have known the Fairchild’s for well over 50 years. We along with Al and Phyllis as well as Joe and Chrissy Nussbaum all owned condos in Myrtle Beach way back then. In all my years in business I have known a lot of people but I will say without hesitation that I never knew anyone that was a better more sincere and caring person than Dr. Al Fairchild. I know the good Lord welcomed Al with open arms. Our prayers go out to Brenda and Lisa and families, all grand and great grandchildren. We will all miss you my dear friend RIP

  • Al was one of a kind. Always loved running into him in the hallways at KCH and seeing him at Mount Vernon Country Club. Both Lou and I will miss seeing his welcoming smile. Prayers to his family.

  • Brenda and Lisa and all the family –
    this is so hard. I can’t even begin to imagine the agony your family has had to endure this month and the last year since your Mom died. As you know, your parents were among our group of “best friends”. We had so many wonderful years together. I got to talk to your dad a few times after we returned from FL and Scott died. He was devastated as all parents would be. I can’t put into words how much your parents both meant to me. I want to be at the service so much, but since we’ve been trying so hard to stay home and social distancing, we will probably stay away and hold on to all our wonderful memories. I just want you ( the Fitzpatrick side ) to know how much we loved your dad and mom. I will ALWAYS miss them. Connie and Ron

  • Alan was so very sweet and easy to talk to. I had the privilege to work in the same building as he did and he delivered my daughter. I enjoyed our talks from the golf course behind his house, he will be missed..prayers to the family ….

    So deeply sorry for the loss of your Dad … Not only a tremendous physician but also a great friend. Nancy and I will always remember in our hearts the fabulous times we had together with all of you.

    Sincerely, Vickie Clawson Adams

  • Rest In Peace Dear Friend, Our MVHS Class of 1957 has lost a good friend and beloved member. Al was always so nice to everyone in school, and his personality, smile, and kindness carried through to his professional life. He always had time to say hello to everyone. Such a genuine person who cared about people. We are sending our deepest sympathy and friendship to his family. We are so sorry that you have had so much sadness recently. Al is now in Heaven with Phyllis, Scott, his friends, and his buddies from high school. He will be sorely missed by all who were fortunate enough to have known this special man. Sincerely, Susan (Nash) and Dick Huggins/Fredericktown

  • Your parents were gems to say the least. And like everyone has said, your dad’s smile was so sincere and meant more than he ever knew. My heart goes out to you for the past month has been a nightmare for you to endure.
    May you find peace knowing your parents and brother are together.
    With deepest sympathy-
    God bless you all

  • I just saw Al 2 weeks ago at IGA and I’m glad we ignored the social distancing rules because I got one last hug in from him…To Rich and family…my heart breaks for all of you. Not only did Dr Fairchild deliver my sister and I, I had the honor of knowing him for many years through Southside Diner and the Alcove. One of my favorite times of the year was serving him and his staff at their private Christmas parties at the Alcove. He would always invite us to join them for cocktails and always treated us girls like family. Him and his wife were true blessings and I can’t imagine what the family must be going through. Knowing that they were truly loved by all who knew them should give you some sort of peace. I am truly sorry for your loss and I am praying for you all.

  • It’s not easy to find the right words to define the feelings one has when a dear friend or loved one passes. Especially when it is someone like Dr. Fairchild. Al was such an incredible person. A devoted family man, a decorated and skilled physician, a true friend… the list goes on and on.

    He was often called “sunshine’ by his staff because of his infectious smile. He had a warm and gentle voice and touch, a calming demeanor, and a personality that is rare these days. He touched so many lives in so many ways and will be sadly missed for multiple reasons.

    God Bless you, Al.

  • My sincere condolences. We worked together and he was my physician. I recall a conversation with Dr. Fairchild about how tempermental surgeons are and he said well what do you think I am and I responded that he was exceptional. Your family will remain in my thoughts and in my prayers. May God bless you in this difficult time.

  • He was a great Dr. with a fun sense of humor…he delivered 3 of my children…I had complications añd he made 100% sure that everything was going right… when I was in labor with my oldest son, I started pushing, and it took 2 pushes, he laughed & said I almost didn’t catch him 🤣 He was such a great person…🙏 Prayers for your family through this time…he had a welcoming committee waiting on him up above…💜

  • Truly an Icon in Mount Vernon not only as a physician but as a person. We have all been blessed by knowing him.
    Sincerely, Lou Ann Wolford RN retired KCH

  • Brenda and Lisa,

    May God comfort you and strengthen you.

    Blessings and prayers during this sad time in your lives.

    Vicki (Braddock) Brooks

  • Brenda and family please know that Kenny and I are definitely sending thoughts for everyone. Your Dad was my first OB. He would set you down and actually treat you like you were is only patient. I always loved seeing his smile when he and the family would be at Mazzas for dinner. Lots of fond memories. Love Rosie and Kenny ❤️❤️

  • Brenda, Lisa and families,

    My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this very difficult time. Doc was a wonderful man! In the recent past, as a neighbor, we would often bump into each other while walking the cart path on the golf course. We would get to talking and realize that 30 minutes or more had went by. We would talk about the past, the present and the future. It was always a joy. Doc was an inspiring presence and I’ll always value those conversations.

    Blessings,

  • My father (Dr. Robert Hoecker) was a doctor in Mt. Vernon, whose career in that medical community overlapped with Dr. Fairchild’s there by about 5 years. And after Dad’s death, my mom (Virginia (Barb) Hoecker) lived another 30 years’ overlap with Dr. Fairchild’s presence in the town’s medical community.

    So although I never met him, I knew of him. I did hear about him, always in professionally complimentary terms from two folks who knew him well, during my periodic visits over those years to my folks and home town. So let me add my second-hand appreciation for his admirable contribution to life in good old Mt. V.

  • I am saddened to hear of Dr.Fairchild’s passing. I was fortunate to work in his office for several years. During those years I saw his caring nature toward his patients and his staff that was truly genuine. I will always remember his welcoming smile that put you at ease. Dr. Fairchild will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
    Nancy Jo Speece

  • I was very sad to hear of Dr. Fairchild’s passing. He was such a caring, compassionate doctor. He was very reassuring. He truly cared about his patients and inspired your faith in him with a kind word and smile. It really was a privilege to have known him. I know I don’t need to tell his family that he was a wonderful man but I just want you to know that he made such a positive difference in his patient’s lives ! We will all remember him fondly.

  • Sending my sympathy and prayers to the Fairchild family to let you know my heart goes out to you at this time of sadness. He was a wonderful Doctor and will be greatly missed.

  • Brenda and Lisa and Families,

    So sorry to hear of Dr. Fairchild passing. We can’t begin to know what you are feeling and experiencing at this time, but you are in our thoughts and our prayers.

  • He delivered me in 1973. My Mother cared for him deeply and always had complete faith in him and his skills as a Doctor. She always told me he was as intelligent as he was kind. Rest in peace dear soul!

  • My heartfelt prayers and condolences for the whole family and for Alan’s loved ones and friends.

  • Our condolences to the family and friends. Such a great man. Always an honor to be among his friends. So loved, So missed.

  • I am so saddened of his passing. He was a such a wonderful friend and caring person. I will miss his beautiful smile and our conversations. He meant so much to so many and it was a pleasure to be his friend and his Nurse. His stories and laughter will live on in my heart forever and always. Prayers to all his family and friends.

  • Dear Brenda, Lisa, and all of Dr. Al’s family and friends: I saw him at the grocery store recently. I had no idea that was the last time we would say hello. He and Dr. Joe took care of me for over 30 years, and delivered our two children.

    I live directly across the road from the cemetery. Today, I sat under my lilacs and watched and listened while the honor guard played Taps. I often walk in the cemetery. You can be sure I will check on him.

    Much love,
    Linda Vining

  • I had the most incredible honor of having Dr Fairchild and Dr Nussbaum for many many years since I was a little girl and I have to say they were the absolute best drs ever! They definitely had alot of love and care with me everytime i seen them. Dr Fairchild delivered all 4 of my babies but 1 and the only reason they didn’t deliver her is because they were retired at that point. I will forever be grateful to all they both have done for me. Dr Fairchild i hope your at peace and that you take care of those in heaven as you’ve done here. You’re one of the most amazing drs and people i have ever met in my entire life and you will forever be thought about and severely missed. Rest easy Dr Fairchild. We love you!! Thank you again for everything!! 💔😔😢💜💕🙏

  • Oh no I was never Dr fairchilds patient but your father was very nice and kind always remember names I would seem several times out and about first time I met him was at the wellness center on yauger Road we chatted I told him who I was I told him my name I told him my name was Tony he said I’ll remember that and I said okay. Always calling doc when I seen him out in public I remember the last time I seen you I was sitting in Rite Aid store waiting on a prescription he came in and picked up one and talk to the pharmacist I said hello. And he looked at me and he said hello Tony I was surprised you remembered my name very kind man I remembered very kind Mount Vernon Knox County was very lucky do you have dr. Fairchild when they did and dr. Nussbaum serving the community I think these new doctors today take a lesson from the old doctors about personality you really need to listen to your patients a person can sense when their doctor doesn’t care about him so why do you people giving good compliments about dr. Fairchild because he must have really listened to his patients and it was kind and gentle man I could sense that when I would talk to him out on the streets like I said I wasn’t one of those patients so doctors today could take a lesson from the older doctors just stop and think you need to make your patience feel like you really care about him and it’s not a number an assembly line in a factory please set my condolence to the Fairchild family on your father’s death the community has lost a good doctor but I know our father in Heaven as receiving the doctor Fairchild done his duty and he went home to be with his wife and his son God bless the fairchilds family and thank you dr. Fairchild through your dedicated service to Mount Vernon and Knox County God bless

  • Dear family of Dr. Fairchild,
    This wonderfully kind doctor will remain in our memories always. I am deeply saddened for your loss. Dr. Fairchild was personally recommended to me by Dr. Pickett, of Riverside Hospital, (who was head of their department of obstetrics, in 1970). I needed a gynecologist because Dr. Pickett was soon to be retired.
    Dr. Pickett asked where I was living, and then after a brief pause said, “ That’s where Al Fairchild is starting a practice!” He smiled and reassured me that, “Al Fairchild was HIS student at O.S.U., and the top of his class!”
    I will always be grateful for that recommendation, because I really felt that our Dr. Fairchild was indeed that medical student who remained top of his class in our hearts. 💕 Heaven has gained one of the BEST!
    Thank you, Dr. Fairchild. You served us so very well.

  • From the MVNU Class of 1976, special sympathy greetings for Rich Fairchild one of our Pioneer Faculty and his wife, Jewell. While I graduated from the college and later worked in the University library, I never met Alan. However, since Alan was as well liked and appreciated as Richard, Alan is surely and greatly missed by his family and friends. May Rich and Jewell be filled with Peace of Jesus during this time of Alan’s death.
