Craig Anthony Fletcher

June 23, 1974 - October 13, 2023


Craig Anthony Fletcher passed away unexpectedly on October 13, 2023, in Williams Lake, BC, at the age of 49.

Born and raised in Penticton, Craig was well known in the community for his hockey accomplishments (playing in both the BCJHL and WHL), as well as running the family auto wrecking business. It was here that fate brought him together with his soulmate Kim when he was 21 years old. They married in 1997 and together raised two beautiful children, Justin (23) and Paris (20). A tight-knit family, the “Fletcher 4” were often out dirt biking, snowshoeing, camping or just relaxing at home together. Six years ago a new career opportunity with Peters Bros took Craig to the Cariboo region. It was here he reconnected with his favourite pastime, fishing, and fully embraced all the advantages of small-town living.

Always the big strong tough guy, but to everyone that knew him, a teddy bear with a huge heart. Craig was outgoing and kind. His sense of humour and work ethic were admired by his friends and colleagues alike. Craig loved life and lived it to the fullest, whether he was tinkering in his garage or cruising around town in his orange truck blasting 80s tunes. Above all else, Craig was wholeheartedly devoted to his family—his proudest accomplishment was being called “dad.” 

In addition to his wife and children, Craig is survived by his parents Joe and DonnaMarie, brother Jay (Tara-Lynn), in-laws Norm and Adrienne Hunchuk, brother-in-law Brian (Tracy), his four-legged best friend Penny and numerous extended family members and friends.

The hearts in our family now beat for Craig, as he continues to live through us every day. 

A private celebration to honour Craig will be held in 2024.

I have thought of Craig often over the years. He was a big part of my childhood, growing up together living only a few doors down from each other. I smile thinking of all the funny conversations we shared sitting on my front step. I remember Craig as one of the most kind hearted guys I’ve ever known, very thoughtful and a true gentleman. He came from a wonderful family and I always admired Craig for the guy he was. I will never forget our friendship and the respect he showed me. My thoughts and prayers are with his entire family and I hope his kids continue his legacy. You will never be forgotten Craig.

Relation: High school friend

From grade 11 to grade 12 myself and Craig use to sit on a heater just outside of the PenHi gym. It was a link to all of the builds in that section of the school.
We sat there every lunchtime heckling everyone that walked by; like the two little old men from the Muppets. That was the best part of my two years at PenHi. There were days I didn’t want to come to school but knowing he would be there made me getnoutnof bed. He was a good friend and an amazing person. I would often go into the wreckers and see Joe and Graig there. I would stop by just to see him. Over the years of course we drifted apart but any time we ran into one another there was always laughs and the promise to get together. Craig will be missed. I am sorry for the loss.
