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.
