Scott Fletcher

December 9, 1959 — December 15, 2023

On 15 December, in the year of the Lord Jesus Christ (anno Domini nostri Jesu Christi) 2023, Scott Thomas Fletcher left this plane of existence. He passed into the Great Eternity to forever dwell with Almighty God after resolutely battling cancer for several years. All who knew and loved him will cherish Scott's memories, particularly his wife Stacy, his daughter Courtney Hoepker, married to Dillon, and Casey Beth and her partner Brandon Navarette. One of the great joys of his life was his seven-month-old granddaughter, Evelyn Mae. Even in the final days of his life, when he was incapable of speaking or much physical movement, he would produce the tiniest smile, and his eyes would project his great love when his little red-headed bundle of emotion and energy, granddaughter “Evie Mae,” would enter his room. Scott is also survived by his sisters Faith Sumpter, married to Steve, Sandy Fletcher, and Beth Fletcher, and his brother Ross, married to Zeila. Scott was 64 years old.

Scott was born on 9 December 1959 in Lake Charles, Louisiana. At age six, he moved with his family to Marshalltown, IA, where he spent his formative years. At age 18, he joined the United States Navy. He proudly went to sea on the USS Arthur W. Radford (DD968). When he separated from the US Navy with an honorable discharge on 27 April 1981, he was a Gunner’s Mate 3rd Class. Scott also served for years with the Texas Guard.

After serving in the US Navy, Scott made his living as a long-haul truck driver from 1981 to 1985. In 1983, he met the love of his life, Stacy Colyer, at one of her softball games in Denton, Texas. Stacy was there in Denton, living with her grandparents while she attended the University of North Texas. For Scott, it was love at first sight. In Scott’s own words, “When I saw Stacy, my heart just went to fluttering and I knew she was the One.”

The two dated for a year and were married in June 1984. After their wedding, the couple moved to Bruceville-Eddy. They remained in the area for the next 39 years, eventually buying some land and building a beautiful home on the Mackey Ranch outside Eddy.

After working for Foxworth-Galbraith, Weyerhauser, and Coca-Cola, Scott finally found, in the Allen Lund Company in 2007, a workplace that truly felt like home. In 2019, upon learning of his illness, Scott retired from Allen Lund. Scott truly loved the company and loved working there.

Scott was a devout Christian man with an indomitable faith and undaunted courage. He was a member of the First Baptist Church of Robinson. He loved his Church and especially the music of the First Baptist Church of Robinson praise and worship music group.
Scott faced his final years, months, weeks, and days in the most inspiring and tenacious way imaginable; his example has stirred and motivated many others. He was also a patriot, an avid outdoorsman, and a firearms enthusiast. He loved taking annual trips to Colorado to hunt elk with his friends. Scott loved the Thursday Men’s Breakfast Club, AKA “Fletcher’s Patio Grill.” He was proud of the group’s motto: “Thank God for Good Friends & Good Food.”

Scott immensely enjoyed his daughters’ sporting events and even wore the Moody ISD “bearcat” mascot costume to several playoff volleyball games. According to his daughters, he also “threw awesome birthday parties” for them. Scott was an avid reader and a history enthusiast. He loved to discuss political matters with any- and everyone, no matter if the receiving party was readily receptive. All knew Scott as a kind, generous, and genuine soul with a heart as big as Texas.

Scott has a rich legacy. Our great loss is Heaven’s great gain. We will all greatly miss him, but our pain and grieving are assuaged by knowing we will join him again. Fair winds and following seas, you old sea dog.
