Max Decovan Fletcher, 81, passed away unexpectedly on Nov. 9, 2013.

Funeral services were held on Tues., Nov. 12, at Bethany Baptist Church with Pastor Josh Wilson officiating.

Born June 26, 1932, in Andalusia, to Dillard Alcus and Quinnie Smithart Fletcher, he was an only child. He graduated from Andalusia High School in 1951. He then attended junior college in Marianna, Fla. After falling for the love of his life, Betty Jean “B.J.” Henderson, the two were wed on Nov. 7, 1954. They had two children, Terri Lehn Fletcher Wilkinson and Keith Decovan Fletcher. As a teenager, he worked for Martin Theaters until a career move in 1962. This path led him to a very successful career with Kraft Foods, working there for 32 years.

He was an avid golfer and member of the Andalusia Country Club. He was a devoted husband, father and friend to many.

Reared by his father and grandparents, Henry and Gatsie Fletcher, after the death of his mother when he was seven, he attended Bethany Baptist Church. There, he began his relationship with Christ. Upon his retirement, the couple moved back to their roots and settled in Heath – once again returning to his Bethany family. His obedience to Christ was exhibited in his humble service to B. J. and his selflessness was depicted in his utter devotion and care giving to his Alzheimer’s stricken bride of 59 years.

The couple shared a love that was timeless, all-enduring and absolutely unforgettable. Max, or “Poppa” as he was affectionately known, will be forever missed by his children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and the one who had his heart, his wife, BJ.

His legacy is one of relentless compassion and the struggles of life that made him the strong man he was – a true testament of God’s command to love one another.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Dillard Alcus Fletcher and Quinnie Smithart Fletcher; son-in-law, Emmett Hewston Wilkinson; and his in-laws, Wilma H. and Comer Henderson.

He is survived by the love of his life, Betty Jean Henderson Fletcher; two children, Terri Lehn Fletcher Wilkinson and Keith Decovan (Kristy) Fletcher; seven grandchildren, Hannah Gatsie Wilkinson (Matt) Johnson of Andalusia, US Army Spc. Fletcher E. H. Wilkinson (and fiancée Emily Griggs), Ethan Andrew Wilkinson, Tyler Scott Welford, Sara Kinsey Brooks, Sydney Leigh Brooks, and Emma Lehn Fletcher; three great-grandsons, Cecil Cruise, Emmett Max and William Walker Johnson; sister-in-law, Dean (Gene) Jacobs; nephews, Ricky (Kathy) Jacobs; nieces, Gloria Adams and Vickie (Larry) Stallings; and countless other family members.

Pallbearers will be Ethan Wilkinson, Matt Johnson, Tyler Welford, Mike Williams, Ricky Fletcher, Ricky Jacobs, Larry Stallings, Brian Jacobs, Chris Adams and Lee Adams.

Honorary pallbearers will be Roy Foreman, SPC Fletcher Wilkinson, the late Emmett Wilkinson and the late Max Long.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the American Alzheimer’s Association in honor of Max’s valiant fight to keep Alzheimer’s from claiming the one to whom he devoted his life.
