Obituary

Lyndall Wayne Fletcher passed away Saturday, April 6, 2019. Family and friends will gather to celebrate his life of 77 years at 10 a.m. on Friday, April 12, 2019, at Lake Ridge Chapel.

Lyndall Wayne Fletcher was born on September 4, 1941. Lyndall, or “Hoppy” as he was known to many, was a funny, kind, loving and gentle man. His life started in Carnegie, Oklahoma where his love for fishing began. At an early age, Fletch’s family moved to Muleshoe, Texas for work and began his schooling in Muleshoe. There, he developed his talents in music and met his lifelong friend, Charles White where the two of them caused all kinds of mischief. It was not until he began lifeguarding that he met Ann, the love of his life.

Hoppy attended Texas Tech University immediately following high school and roomed with his best friend Charles for those two years. When Ann graduated high school in Muleshoe, she and Hoppy decided to attend McMurry University in Abilene. They were both involved in Chanters, where he continued to grow his love of music, especially the music Ann played. Both of them graduated from McMurry and soon moved to Dallas as teachers and married soon thereafter. While living in Dallas, they had Chris and Keri, whom he loved the rest of his life.

Hoppy’s love of Jesus and of people led him to bi-vocational ministry as teacher and preacher. Hoppy served Methodist Churches in Caps, Sweetwater, Spade, Cotton Center, Sudan, Shiner, and Liberty Hill, where he retired and moved back to Lubbock. His retirement was short-lived, for he was called to serve the Methodist Church in Morton for the last 11 years of his ministry. He served as a teacher in Grand Prairie, Lubbock Dunbar HS, Slaton, Amherst, and Olton.

No matter who he encountered or where the road led him, he made everyone feel like he had known them his whole life. Hoppy’s contagious humor and infectious personality allowed him to impact the lives of countless students, teachers, and parishioners. He also encouraged and mentored many pastors to enter the ministry, including his son-in-law, Kelly.  He would swell with pride when talking about his family–his grandchildren, Kyle, Kayli, Will and Lawson, being at the top of the list. Hoppy was an amazing husband, father, grandfather, mentor, teacher, and friend who loved BIG!

Survivors include the love of his life, Ann; his children, Christopher Fletcher and wife, Christine; Keri DeLaine Inman and husband, Kelly; grandchildren, William Brock Fletcher, Lawson Joseph Fletcher, Kyle David Inman, Kayli Brooke Inman; brothers, Ricky Fletcher and wife, Sujen; and Gary Fletcher and wife, Jody.

Hoppy, you will be missed because there will never be another man like you! See ya later!

Condolences

  3. Dear Ann and family,

    My heart breaks for you as you go on without Fletch. Our time together at Amherst school and church are sweet memories. The 1988 Senior trip with Fletch was a “hoot”. He will be remembered as an officiant for my mother’s funeral in 2009. I KNOW that the Holy Spirit will comfort and give you strength and I praise God for Lyndall’s life.
