Horner) and 5 brothers, Bert, Ern, George, John and Len, he came to Forks in 1896 when his parents settled on a homestead just outside the Hoh Indian Reservation. The Fletcher family came to Washington from Missouri with another family, the Pfundts, in the fall of 1886, settling first in Cowlitz County, then moving to Tacoma in the spring of 1887 and to Hood Canal in the fall of 1889. The families separated when the Fletchers moved to Forks. Mr. Fletcher spent his life working out of doors on his homestead and as a packer and guide. As a young man he worked in the wheat fields of eastern Washington during harvest season and was packer and guide for the first railroad survey in this area at the age of 16.

He packed for the highway crew during construction of Highway 101 from Klaloch to the Hoh bridge prior to 1931 as well as packing supplies to their camp when the crew was quarantined during a smallpox epidemic--a situation which relieved him from serving on jury duty at the time. He also guided another group of geologists who were exploring the area for an oil company sometime prior to 1940.

At 21 he settled his own homestead on the Hoh where he married and raised a family up until a few years ago when he and his wife moved to another location on the Hoh to live with daughter Mary. Two pioneering families were joined when he married Lena Huelsdonk in 1918. Also raised on the Hoh, she had graduated from the University of Washington and was then teaching at the school on the lower Hoh. Fletcher, a quiet, unassuming man, was often teased about his small stature compared to that of his robust Germanic wife, the daughter of the legendary Iron Man of the Hoh, with whom he would have celebrated their golden wedding anniversary this Aug 5. Together hey raised seven children--John, presently the director of a zoo in St. Paul, MN; Mrs. Elizabeth Barlow, a botanist and artist, who lives with her husband Charles on the family homestead; Alvin, who owns Fletcher Electric in Forks and presently served as Clallam County PUD Commissioner; Fred, who is employed by Allen Logging Co., and Rockwell, who is a logger, and Mrs. Mary Huelsdonk, with whom Lena and Fred have been living. Among his many ventures, Fletcher, together with brother Ern, logged airplane spruce during W.W.I. For a short time following the war, he ran a fish cannery at the mouth of the river. He served a mail carrier from Forks to the Lower Hoh, first by pack horses and later when the road was completed, by a Model T. Over the years, Fletcher served the community in many capacities. He was Justice of the Peace in the Hoh precinct of Jefferson County for a short time. He assisted with putting in the first water supply for Forks, was a school bus driver and served on the school board.
