James E. Fletcher, Sr.,

He was born on January 27, 1921, to Joseph Louis and Dollie Taylor Fletcher, and "Finished Well" on Wednesday, April 24, 2013. The 1934 Southern U. S. Marble Champion, WWII Navy PBM Mariner Radar Man serving in the Pacific Theater, Manville Paper Maker for 44 years, and Lifetime Deacon of Trinity Baptist Church of West Monroe, considered his most cherished accomplishment to be his 71 years of marriage to "the love of his life," Ethel Mae Fowler Fletcher.

He is preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Lloyd Fletcher of Crossett, Arkansas. He is survived by his wife, Ethel Mae Fowler Fletcher; sister, Helen Fletcher Howard of St. Francisville, Louisiana; and sister-in-law, Ruby Hines Fowler of Pasadena, Texas.

His legacy lives on in the lives of their children.
