Edward Fletcher Obituary
Edward (Ed) Theodore Fletcher
Edward (Ed) Theodore Fletcher, passed peacefully into the arms of his savior, August 13, 2014 at his home in the presence of his family. Edward (Ed) Theodore Fletcher, Jr. was born December 5, 1940 in Redlands, California to Edward T. Fletcher, Sr. and Vada Fulbright Fletcher. He attended Redlands University and graduated from Stanford University with Honors in Engineering. After graduation, he met the love of his life, Mary Elizabeth Fletcher, and they were married in 1968. Ed is survived by his wife of 46 years, Mary, 2 children and 2 grandchildren: daughter, Elizabeth Fletcher Freel (Jon); son, Edward T. Fletcher, III (Tiffany) and grandsons, Oliver Maxwell Fletcher, 6, and Lucas Edward Fletcher, 2. Ed is also survived by one brother, George Louis Fletcher (Janet), four nieces and 2 nephews. All who knew Ed will miss his clever sense of humor and his generosity towards family and friends. His passions were always for his family, his roses, and his work in defense of our country. Ed's long and distinguished career in service to our Air Force, Army, Navy and NASA led to his recent receipt of a Lifetime Achievement Award, which included the following description of his exceptional contributions to the defense of our country. "For his numerous and significant contributions to the - Program and our country's national defense. Through his dedication and untiring efforts and leadership during his distinguished professional career of over fifty years....In 1980, Ed co-founded XonTech, Inc......Perhaps one of Ed's most remarkable, and lasting achievements is that as he and his XonTech partners grew their company to 500+ strong, he directly mentored numerous radar engineers and data analysts, and many are still contributing to the -Program today, and will be for years to come." Private viewing and graveside services for the family will be this Saturday, August 16th. Friends are invited to the Memorial Service and reception at 5:00 p.m. at the Fletcher home - 1429 Via Zumaya, Palos Verdes Estates, 90274. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations honoring Ed be sent to The Carter Report, 145 Park Lane #200 Moorpark, CA 93021, or the Assistance League of San Pedro-South Bay, 1441 W. 8th Street, San Pedro, CA 90732.
