Norman William Fletcher, 1937–2022

 Norman passed away peacefully, surrounded by loved ones
on Monday, June 6, 2022, in his 85th year.
… 

He will be dearly missed by Sharon, his wife of 6o years. He was the devoted and much-loved father of Nancy (John Stacey) and Ron (Fiona Martin), and proud grandpa of Megan, Sydney, and Greg. He will also be sadly missed by his sister Mary (late Bob Rose).

A descendant from a long line of proud Canadians, Norman was deeply committed to the Chateauguay Valley and fiercely proud of his village of Howick. He was a man of action, strong willed, and unwavering when there was business to resolve.

Norman will be most remembered for his tremendous storytelling, his long speeches, his great sense of humour, his positive outlook on life, and his easy-going ability to make friends wherever he went. He will be truly missed.

The family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks and gratitude to the many kind friends, neighbours, and numerous caregivers who throughout Norman’s 50-year battle with Multiple Sclerosis, made his life just a little bit easier.

A  celebration of life will be held on Friday, August 19, 2022 at 3:00 pm at his daughter’s residence in Allan’s Corners (2413 Chateauguay River Road).

Donations to the Women’s Auxiliary of the Barrie Memorial Hospital
in Ormstown, Quebec, would be greatly appreciated.

    So saddened to just learn of this news. Norman always made me feel so welcome when I visited the Fletchers. He was just a big lug of a guy. And, what a terrific personality! Thinking of Ronnie, Nancy and Sharon and sending them all big hugs from all the Crossling Family xoxo

    Our deepest sympathies to Sharon, Nancy and John, Ron, Fiona and family.

    We have many fond memories of good times spent with the Fletcher family over the years.
    We will remember Norman especially as a “Master of Words, a “Jokester” and a “Tease”.
    Whenever we stopped in he always had a story or a joke that needed to be told.
    He loved a captive audience.
    He was never at a loss for words and delighted in making a story as detailed and long as possible.
    He was even happier if he could manage to pull the wool over your eyes with the tale.

    Rest In Peace Norman.

    So terribly sad to hear this news about Norman. We worked together back in the 1970’s for years in the advertising industry at 1000 Wellington St in Montreal with McLean Brothers, Advertising Typeographers & Typographie Quebec. Norm was always the 1st one in work as he drove in a milk truck to unload his milk before coming into the plant. He was such a pleasure to work with. His enormous smile & red hair & keen sense of humour always made everyone feel so good around him. Years went by & we parted, then like a miracle I met him in Ormstown one day just around the year 2001. He asked what I was doing in his neck of the woods. I explained my daughter Stacey married David Bryson & who were living over on the Tullochgorum & that we were good friends of Lynn & Bill Bryson & the Bryson Clan. He told me he too was friends with them as Lynn was from Howick. What a small world. I met Norm a few times over the years & it was always such a great time hearing his stories about that area. It brought back such fond memories of a wonderful man that I had worked with for so many years. I was deeply sadden to here this unfortunate news today. I feel very fortunate to have been an acquaintance of Norms & will cherish the time & memories we had together at Mcleans. My deepest sympathies to the Fletcher Family. My heart, thoughts & prayers are with you all at this time. Rest in Peace Norm. God Bless. Your old friend, Ross.

    To Sharon, Nancy & John, Ronnie & Fiona and family, I’m so sorry for your loss. I think he lived a full life and I know how much you did to allow him to do his own thing for as long as possible! My thoughts are with you all xoxo
