Early on the morning of April 13, 2022, Walter Dewey Fletcher, 65, of Franklin, VA, peacefully transitioned from this earthly life into his home in eternity. Walter was born on December 8, 1956 in Isle of Wight County, Virginia to the late Charles Henry Fletcher and Alma Louise Holmes Fletcher.

Upon entering the career field, Walter gained employment with the shipyard and worked at several locations including Norfolk, Newport News and Portsmouth Shipyards. Walter was a faithful and dedicated employee, serving as a fire watchman within the industry. Walter was a sports fanatic, who enjoyed watching all types of sports. He also enjoyed spending time with family and friends playing pool (billiards) and cards. When it came to “trash talking,” Walter was the King and you couldn’t beat him at his trade! Walter was predeceased by his wife, Emma Lee Fletcher; a son, Walter Fletcher, Jr.; maternal grandparents, Lynn and Jeanette Holmes; paternal grandparents, Charles and Lucille Fletcher; siblings, Helen Fletcher, Frank Fletcher, Ann Fletcher, Larry Fletcher and Jackie Fletcher.
