Vincent D. Fletcher, known to most as “Vinny” and to some as “Vince,” passed away at 5:59 p.m. on Saturday, October 27th in Fort Wayne’s Visiting Nurse Hospice Home. He was 47 years old.
Born in Warsaw to Shannon and Carol (Borders) Fletcher on November 20, 1970, Vinny was a 1989 graduate of Warsaw Community High School. He worked at LSC Communications, formerly RR Donnelley.
Vinny was an independent thinker with an often hidden but tender heart. He enjoyed music, especially heavy metal but also enjoyed Classical music from artists like Bach and Beethoven. He liked football and wrestling and was a Dallas Cowboys fan. He also liked reading Sci-Fi and Horror; his favorite author was Dean Koontz.
Those who survive in Warsaw with memories to treasure include mother, Carol Fletcher; brother, Eric (wife, Polly) Fletcher; three nephews: Brad Fletcher, Knickolas Fletcher and Brennan Miller and two nieces, Ahnalia Miller and Haylee Fletcher. Also surviving are two step-brothers, Sean (wife, Lisa) Fletcher of Chicago and Nathan Fletcher of Milan, Ill. and step-sister, Erin (husband, K.C.) Martin of North Pekin, Ill. Preceding Vinny in passing are father, Shannon Fletcher (1998) and step-father, L. Mike Fletcher (2015).
