I have to tell you that I will miss umpiring with Charlie Fletcher. Before his being stricken with cancer he was always one of the joys of making the trip out to Grantsville tournaments. Even in the 103 degree heat, his cheerful demeanor brightened my soul. Michael Leavitt - Orem, Utah
So sorry I will miss the funeral. Between 12 inches of snow and my husbands Parkinson’s needs, just can’t make it. Shirley M. Wall
Charlie was a great guy, I always like working with him. Scott Adams
I agree Michael Leavitt he was very positive even through his treatments and always felt he was going to beat it. He is a trooper. I don't know how positive I could be after hearing I was not going to beat it. God Bless Charlie Fletcher. Phil Cappadonia

Kenna, I pray that you will feel our love for you and your family. It was a pleasure to capture some of the moments through my camera's lens. While at the cemetery, as the soldiers were folding the U.S. flag, the sky lightened for about two minutes as the sun peeked through the clouds. The rays of light shown down and brightened the day, just as the Blue Room would when Charlie entered and greeted his fellow umpires. I want you to know that your family succeeded yesterday in paying tribute to Charlie and his presence was felt by all in attendance. Thanks for inviting us to be a part this difficult time in your family's life. Michael Leavitt - Orem, Utah
REST IN PEACE, CHARLIE!
