George Vincent Fletcher

Fletcher – George Vincent, age 77, of Mersey Point, Queens County, passed away peacefully with his loving family by his side on Wednesday, September 20th, 2023, at Surf Lodge Nursing Home, Lockeport.
Born in Digby, George was the son of the late George and Jean (Brooks) Fletcher.
George was raised in Bear River and had a happy active childhood that revolved around family events and sports, such as playing hockey on the outside rink, swimming, fishing and baseball and he made many life long friendships.
George moved to Liverpool in 1967 to work at the Stedman’s store. Over the years George worked various jobs, working at Canadian Tire, Cole Ford Sales, Sears until he found a job working as a teachers assistant at Liverpool Regional High School. George loved helping others and getting to know all of the kids in the area and he also loved it when many years later those kids, now grown up, would approach him to say hello and catch up.
Sports played a big part in George’s life. As a dedicated father he spent many hours at the rink and on the ball field coaching or officiating. He also enjoyed watching and cheering on the sidelines especially when his son John was playing. Many conversations were had around town about George’s love of the Montreal Canadiens.
George truly lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures such as spending time with friends, meeting new people, going for walks, camping, playing guitar at friends homes and local dances.
George will be sadly missed by his loving family and friends for his kind heart and smile and positive outlook on life. He was always smiling… That smile will be missed by all who knew him.
George is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Janet; son, John at home; sisters, Marcia Buckler (Dave Brooks), Nettie Fletcher, both of Bear River; nieces, Heather, Karen, Amanda, Barb, Bonnie, Tammy, Dakota, Jennifer; nephews; Clyde, Scott and John; sisters-in-law, Sylvia (Jr.) Cunningham, Cheryl Webb, Karen Dean (Kevin Weagle), Melinda (David) Brown; brother-in-law, Mike (Debbie) Frelick.
