William David Fletcher

Mr. Fletcher

William David Fletcher, 83, Tiffin, died suddenly, but peacefully, Wednesday, May 17, 2017, in his sleep at home.

He was born Aug. 30, 1933, to Carl Curtis and Mary Electa (Proper) Fletcher on the farm in Alta. He married Jacqueline Anne Scheurer April 8, 1961, and she survives.

Also surviving are three sons, Roc Fletcher of Marion, John (Cynthia) Fletcher of Tiffin and Daniel (Cassandra) Fletcher of Amherst; two grandchildren, Jaden and Anna Fletcher of Tiffin; six siblings, Norma Bowers, Richard (JoAnn) Fletcher, Tom (Roberta) Fletcher, Margie West, Judy Smith and Susie (Gayle) Kanz; and many nieces and nephews.

Preceding him in death were his parents; a son, Lance David Fletcher; a daughter, Julia Merry Fletcher; and three siblings, Gerri Logan, Jack Fletcher and Robert Fletcher.

He graduated from Mansfield Madison High School in 1952. The family moved to Tiffin in 1962, where he managed a financial office in downtown Tiffin. He was one of the founding members of Tiffin Historic Trust in 1976 and loved sports of all kinds and especially enjoyed his children and grandchildren’s events. In 1980, he opened his own antique shop, specializing in restoring vintage furniture. In 1990, he took on renovating a 1835 Greek Revival home for the family. His secret to success in life was the work ethic and persistence he learned while growing up on the farm.

His funeral will begin at 3 p.m. Saturday, May 20, 2017, at Hoffmann-Gottfried-Mack Funeral Home & Crematory, 236 S. Washington St., Tiffin, OH 44883, (419) 447-2424, with the Rev. Clayton J. Bailey officiating. Burial will take place at a later date in Fairmont Cemetery.
