Fletcher met the love of his life, Louisa Bell and they moved to Vail, Colorado, in 1974. After a few years in California, they returned to Colorado.

He survived his parents, one sister and two brothers — all of Philadelphia. Fletcher grew up in Philadelphia and graduated from the Philadelphia Museum School of Art. He was well known for his pen and ink drawings. Fletcher enjoyed many different sports including snow skiing, hiking, snowshoeing and biking over the years.

Snowplowing efforts are a prime example of how sometimes the very people who need a service hinder its delivery.
