Earl Fletcher, longtime 79th member, dies at 65

Scan0001-crop1Earl Fletcher, a longtime member of the 79th NY and friend to all in the hobby who knew him, has died at age 65. Earl was director of the Nathanael Greene Museum and was recently elected to the Greene County Commission. He formerly was a teacher and coach in the Greene County Schools, and served as an alderman in Mosheim. He was a veteran who served aboard sub hunting aircraft out of Iceland.

To those who knew Earl, he was a kind, generous man who always had a kind word for his friends and fellow re-enactors.

His warm and welcoming presence will be sorely missed around the campfire, and we will always have a spot in the company street for him.
