Ray’s Obituary Clewiston, Fla. Charley Ray Fletcher, age 75, of Clewiston, Florida passed away on July 25, 2019 at 11:24 p.m. surrounded by his loving family following a courageous battle with cancer. Ray was a life-long resident of Clewiston, graduating from Clewiston High School Class of 1963. He owned and operated his own auto mechanic business for many years often saying if it hadn’t been for the Ford Motor Company, his family would have gone hungry. He retired from the City of Clewiston in 2015 after 15 years of making sure the golf carts were mechanically sound and the greens were will maintained. He took pride in every job he ever had, no matter how big or how small. Ray was born on September 22, 1943 in Meigs, Georgia but at the age of one his family moved to Clewiston. Except for the seven years he lived in Georgia, Clewiston would remain his home. He was an active member of Clewiston Gospel Ministries, right up until his health declined. A very spiritual man, his personal relationship with the Lord will forever influence the lives of any and all who knew him. Ray was preceded in death by his parents, Howard and Montine Fletcher; sister, Shirley Cotton; nephew, Dewayne Cotton; sister-in-law, Dianne Fletcher; grandson, James Ray Sewell. Ray leaves behind his loving and devoted wife of 36 years, Marlin Fletcher; daughters, Debi (Edward) Smith of Clewiston, Florida, Cindy (Raul) Valdez of Jesup, Pam Fletcher and her significant other Lois Mullen of Fort Myers, Karen (Donny) Shaw of Clewiston, and Leann (Jeremy) Pilarski of North Port, Florida; 10 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren; brother, Ronald Fletcher and sister, Faye (Junior) Dixon both from Clewiston, Florida; sister-in-law; Donna (Monte) Montgomery and her three children, and seven grandchildren of Screven, Georgia, whom he loved as his own grandchildren. He was without a doubt their papa and he loved his babies, big or small. Other survivors include a special nephew and niece, Stevie and Tammy Cotton of Clewiston as well a host of other family and friends. He is also survived by the mother of his four girls, Ann Lowery of Clewiston. Family will receive friends from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., Monday, July 29, 2019, at Akin-Davis Funeral Home.
