Fletcher Lee Tillis
Nov 5, 1935 - Feb 19, 2018
To have, to hold and then to part, is the greatest sorrow of my heart. Fletcher passed away on Feb. 19, 2018 after a battle with cancer. He fought the fight, but cancer won. His family’s hearts are broken to lose such a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and friend to many. He is survived by his wife Alta, daughters Laurie Carroll (Mike), and Wendy McElrath, stepchildren Bill Widener (Lynette), Cheryl Miller (Tim), grandchildren Michael Carroll, Alyssa Carroll, Jonathan McElrath, step-grandchildren and sister Carole Hartung (Bill). Predeceased by his mother Flora, father James, brother Jim and son-in-law Jeff McElrath. In his earlier years he served in the National Guard and was stationed at Fort Ord. He enjoyed his life long career in the automotive industry. Cars were his passion, especially Corvettes. Fletcher was a special person who strived for perfection and loved his family.
