So sorry to learn of uncle flecher passing, I have so many fond memories, he was someone to look up to and be proud of. Always a chuckle and a smile . Always kind and helpful in every way. When my daughter turned 16 I asked him to tell me how to paint the old yellow truck for her birthday, just to tell me how wasn't good enough for him. He insisted he come to my shop and actually help every day after he finished working on his job. When we finished, I'm not sure who was prouder of the job we all did together. I/ we will miss him greatly, for he was truly a great uncle and friend.
