Ted Fletcher, beloved husband, father, brother, and friend passed away suddenly, May 5, 2022. Theodore Aubrey Fletcher was born August 30, 1963 in San Jose, California. He was the fifth of Dave and Ancy Fletcher’s six children. Sweet and shy, with big brown eyes and an impish grin, Ted loved every minute of life. Nicknamed Teddy Bear, he attended Walter Hays, Jordan Middle School and Palo Alto High School, excelling in sports. After graduating from the University of Colorado, Boulder, with a degree in Economics, Ted returned to Palo Alto, got married, opened his own business: Art-Craft, and became a father. Ted was a lifelong Palo Alto resident who never missed the opportunity to cheer on his Bay Area sports teams and frequent his favorite local places. He will be remembered for his even temper, generous heart, loyalty and kindness to all! (And his love of the Rolling Stones) He is survived by his wife Linda, son McKinley and daughter Tessa. He was loved deeply by many family members and friends. He will remain in our hearts always. Memorial donations can be made to The Palo Alto Elks or University of Colorado, Boulder. A Memorial Service will be held Saturday, June 25 (1:00 PM) at the First Congregational Church in Palo Alto. Reception to follow.
