  4. John & Elizabeth Fletcher :

    We were saddened to hear, through his son Glen, of Russell’s death on April 15, 2014. We first met Joan & Russell in the late 80’s when they visited Joan’s sister who lived in Mississauga. They visited us when they returned to the Toronto area. Russell and Glen had dinner at our house about 5 years ago. Russell’s Grandfather, Duncan Fletcher 1803-1931 and my (John’s) Grandfather, John Buchanan Fletcher ,1841-1928 were brothers born Argyllshire, Scotland. That makes us second cousins. Russell was in the army overseas in the Second World War, where he met Joan. Our deepest sympathy to Russell’ family.
    John & Elizabeth Fletcher, Toronto
