Raymond “Ray” Francis Fletcher, 84, of Santa Rosa, died peacefully Dec. 22nd after a short battle with lung cancer. Ray was born Sept. 21, 1934, in Hackensack, N.J, to Edward James and Sarah Pauline Fletcher. He graduated from Seton Hall University and, in 1957, married the former Denise Therese Dinella. In 1968, they and their three children moved to San Jose, CA, where Ray worked as a marketing manager at Beckman Instruments. After his retirement, the couple moved to Petaluma, where Ray was his wife’s caregiver until her death in 2012. The couple were enthusiastic world travelers, visiting locales from the Arctic Circle to the pyramids of Egypt, and staunch supporters of the Petaluma Senior Center. In 2017, Ray moved to Oakmont, where he lived until his final months. Ray is survived by his children: Holly Harrington, of Gaithersburg, MD; Doug Fletcher (Debbie), of Santa Rosa; and Denise McPhail (Roy) of Granite Bay; and granddaughters Cassie Fletcher, and Shelby and Carly McPhail. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends. The service will be private. Anyone wishing to honor Ray can donate to Guide Dogs for the Blind of San Rafael, at PO Box 151200; San Rafael, CA; 94915.
