Obituary: Fletcher Bronson 1885 - 1980

Contributor: Tracirose Created: 2 years ago Updated: 1 week ago

Long-time Prominent Resident Dies. Fletcher Bronson was born April 21, 1885 in Huntsville, Utah Wilmer Wharton and Marion Frengler Bronson, the fifth of their six children. He died November 26, 1980 at his home in Monticello, at age 95. He had lived for the past 92 years in Monticello where he moved with his family when he was 3 years old. He married Eva Dorothy Butt on December 15, 1909, in the Salt Lake LDS Temple, and to them were born five children - - two sons and three daughters. Fletcher had a zest for life and enjoyed it to the fullest until he became ill a few months ago. He learned to work hard in his youth as a farmer, sheep shearer, and later engaged in the uranium mining business. He was a great outdoors man and love sports. He could always be seen at the high school ball games and wrestling matches, and often traveled to the tournaments that took place out of town. He was honored by the school a few years ago for his faithful support and attendance record. Fletch - - as he was called by his friends - - loved horses, fishing, and hunting - - even having success with his bow and arrow. He learned to ski and bowl while in his seventies, and enjoyed these sports until the age of 86 when he was thrown from his horse and sustained a broken pelvis. He was gifted with a beautiful singing voice, as were his brothers and sisters, and they entertained the community of Monticello for many years. Fletch also enjoyed singing with his children and at church where he was a longtime member of the choir. He filled a two and a half year stake mission and was a high priest in the Monticello First LDS ward. He loved to use a pick, shove, and axe, and up until the last three months of his life could be seen in his yard cutting and stacking wood mowing his lawn, or in winter, shoveling snow, and caring for a small patch of corn and some pretty flowers. He could also still be seen driving his green Bronco. He was preceded in death by his wife, Eva and a son, Warren. NOTE: survivors and funeral information were not listed here but are in the newspaper article. Newspaper is unknown but in pencil on the back is: Dec 11, front page.

Fletcher Bronson was 20 years old when Albert Einstein publishes his first paper on the special theory of relativity. Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics. His work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. He is best known to the general public for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2, which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation".

His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.

Fletcher Bronson was 54 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.

The Holocaust, also referred to as the Shoah, was a genocide during World War II in which Nazi Germany, aided by its collaborators, systematically murdered some six million European Jews, around two-thirds of the Jewish population of Europe, between 1941 and 1945. Jews were targeted for extermination as part of a larger event involving the persecution and murder of other groups, including in particular the Roma and "incurably sick", as well as ethnic Poles and other Slavs, Soviet citizens, Soviet prisoners of war, political opponents, gay men and Jehovah's Witnesses, resulting in up to 17 million deaths overall.

In 1939, after earning his medical degree, Salk began an internship as a physician scientist at Mount Sinai Hospital. Two years later he was granted a fellowship at the University of Michigan, where he would study flu viruses with his mentor Thomas Francis, Jr.
