John B. Fletcher Obituary


John B. Fletcher, 69, of Marlborough, beloved husband of Carol Fletcher, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, July 1, 2014. He was born May 5, 1945 in Groton, CT to the late Harold and Evelyn (Gaudet) Fletcher. He enlisted in the United States Army honorably serving his country as a Green Beret during the Vietnam War. His bravery during the war awarded him with the Parachutist badge, Vietnam Service Medal, Combat Infantryman badge and the Purple Heart. He was a loyal employee of John M. Glover Agency in Berlin, CT. In his free time, John enjoyed hiking, mountain biking, kayaking and all outdoor activities. He had a passion for all music, especially Jimmy Buffett who inspired him to let loose and celebrate life. John was a genuine, caring, selfless man that dedicated his life to his family, friends and anyone who had the privilege of knowing him. He instilled his strong discipline and good morals on his children while coaching them on and off the field. John was always there in good and bad times to support, motivate, and encourage his family. John would tackle any obstacle head on. He would display his rugged character by building forts, playing paintball and climbing the White Mountains but was never afraid to show off his softer side. Through building sand castles, getting his nails painted, making "happy time drinks" for his grandchildren and steaks for the dogs. He was the family superhero! The smile on his face could light up a room and will forever shine in our hearts. In addition to his wife Carol Fletcher of 42 years, he will be dearly missed by his children, Tami Grasso and her husband Peter, Tara Fletcher and her boyfriend John James, Derek Fletcher and his wife Jessica and Drew Fletcher and his girlfriend Christie Rebelo; his five grandchildren, and his extended family and friends. All are invited to attend calling hours on Friday, July 11, 2014 from 5-8 PM at Glastonbury Funeral Home, 450 New London Tpk, Glastonbury, CT 06033. Burial will be held privately at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in John's memory may be made to: Wounded Warrior Project, PO Box 758541, Topeka, Kansas 66675-8541.
