Matthew Nelson Fletcher was born September 6, 1973, at Meyers Community hospital in Sodus NY. He was a 1992 graduate of Wayne Central High school in Ontario NY. After graduation Matt joined the Navy as a Navy Seabee and traveled the world from 1992-1997, doing combat time in Somalia Africa. He was awarded the Navy medal of achievement for his outstanding ability to complete a project on time. Matt was both an accomplished Farrier and carpenter. He enjoyed riding wide open country on a good horse and hunting white tailed deer. As my father-in-law said, "he was born 100 years to late". He is survived by his father Ralph Fletcher and his children Austin Fletcher, Cody Fletcher, Ethan Fletcher and Ian Chapman.
