Fletch was truly one-of-a-kind. I have so many memories of great times we had together...I could never mention them all. I do remember the first day we met at Bonzo's house and became instant friends. Every time we got together it was like no time had passed. Hugs to Karla, Betty, the boys, and everyone. I'm going to miss him! Love you all!

Fletch was such a nice person with an infectious smile. Could always count on that big smile when entering the American Legion, if he was there helping out. He will be missed by many. So very sorry for the Goodman family's loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
