Sept. 1, 1933 – Dec. 25, 2012
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of High Bar First Nation Elder ‘David Wallace Fletcher’ at the age of 79.
David suffered a heart attack at his home in Clinton BC. He spent a month long stay at Kelowna General Hospital, where he passed away peacefully in his sleep on Dec. 25th with family members nearby.
David is survived by his children; Darrell Simon, Faron Fletcher, Stewart Fletcher, Irene Eustache (Duane), Pat Fletcher (Trudi), Sandra Higginbottom, Ken Fletcher (Val), Loretta Weingart (Sonny), Marcel Paul (Kristy), and Marlie Paul (Tony), his brothers, sisters, nephews, nieces, grandchildren and great grandchildren. He is predeceased by his wife Marcella Paul, his first wife Nora Fletcher, daughter Sal Fletcher, sisters Irene and Jean Fletcher, and his parents Celestine Fletcher and Ernest Vedan.
David requested no funeral service as he would like to be remembered the way he was. His last wishes were to be cremated and to have his ashes spread in such a way as to connect to his loved ones.
The Family would like to thank the Amazing staff at Kelowna General Hospital, our family and friends for all their support, and would like to extend our gratitude to the hand drummers and Fire watchers during the wake.
A celebration of David’s life will be held by the family at a later date in the New Year.
