Virginia Beach - James Norrice Fletcher, 85, passed away on Friday, May 2, 2014, at his home surrounded by his four daughters. He was born in Gilt Edge, Tennessee, to the late Harold and Ivie Fletcher. His loving wife of 63 years, Georgia, preceded him in death on March 17, 2014.

In addition to being a loving husband and father, Jim was beloved for his dedicated work both in his career with Sears Roebuck and his time given to many civic organizations including the Virginia Beach Chamber of Commerce, The Virginia Beach Neptune Festival and the City of Virginia Beach United Way campaign. His career with Sears spanned over 40 years and culminated with the honor of managing the Pembroke Mall Sears location awarded the number one Sears store in the nation during his tenure.

Following his retirement from Sears he worked in business development for Commerce Bank in Virginia Beach. Jim was an active member of the Virginia Beach Rotary Club with lifetime perfect attendance and served on the Virginia Beach school board for several years before being nominated to Chairman of the Board. He was also honored by the Virginia Beach Jaycees as First Citizen of Virginia Beach in 1985.

Jim was a self-taught and skillful master of watch and clock repair studying and collecting many varieties throughout his lifetime. He rarely ran into a watch or clock he could not fix.

Left to cherish Jim's memory are his four loving daughters, Victoria Jane Hensley and her husband, Jack, Christine Fletcher Webb and her husband, Richard, Julia Fletcher Johnston and husband, Mark, and Amy Elizabeth Sandoval and husband, Steve; three grandchildren Rachel Hensley, Travis Hensley and Olivia Sandoval. He is also survived by his brothers Coy, George, Hayes and Thomas Fletcher.
