Obituary

Dr. Daniel Hastings Fletcher, PhD, 44, passed away March 27, 2019, at University of Pennsylvania Medical Center from complications of cystic fibrosis. He was born at Memorial Hospital in Savannah on Sept. 30, 1974, to Joe and Dianne Fletcher. Daniel graduated from Fletcher High School, Jacksonville Beach, Fla., in 1993, where he was captain of the tennis team. He obtained a respiratory therapy degree in 1997 from Florida Community College at Jacksonville and continued his education at Lipscomb University where he received a BA, MA and MDiv in Biblical Studies. Daniel completed his formal education at the prestigious Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, Pa., where he received a PhD in Hermeneutics and Biblical Interpretation in 2012. He served on the faculty of several universities and was most recently a professor of Biblical Studies at Amridge University. Since 2012, his greatest loves were his family and teaching God's word. He was an accomplished scholar, speaker, teacher and guitarist, and was the author of two books, dozens of published articles and contributed to biblical dictionaries and translations.
He is survived by his beloved wife, Joanne Kelly; three beautiful children, Hannah, Nathan and Lydia Fletcher (twins); parents, Joseph Mell Fletcher Sr. and Dianne Chapman Fletcher of Rincon; brothers, Mell Fletcher of Nashville, Tenn., and Don Fletcher (Amy) of Rincon; nephew, Cole Fletcher; and nieces, Leah and Abby Fletcher; along with numerous precious aunts, uncles, cousins and close friends. Daniel was preceded in death by his grandparents, Winson and Mildred Fletcher of Rye Patch; and Donald and Ella Mae Chapman of Ludowici.
