Roger “Rodney” Fletcher, Jr

May 5, 1983 — November 21, 2022

MR. ROGER “RODNEY” A. FLETCHER,JR. affectionately known as “Rodney”, loving son of Roger and Marian Fletcher, Sr., was born on May 5, 1983 at Richland Memorial Hospital (now Prisma Health Richland) in Columbia, South Carolina. Rodney was second of two children, one boy and one girl.

Rodney attended Camden High School, graduating in 2001. He continued his education at Central Carolina Technical College.

Rodney was brought up in the church and loved attending church. He was affiliated with Flat Rock Baptist Church, Mt. Calvary Holiness Church and Bingham Chapel AME Zion Church, all in Kershaw County, South Carolina. He was a faithful Sunday school scholar, attending weekly bible studies and was a member of the choir. He played the drums and also served as an usher. Rodney surrendered his life to Jesus under the leadership of Pastor Alex Souza of the Universal Church of Columbia, South Carolina.

He grew up in Westville, South Carolina. Rodney lived in many places but he never forgot where he came from. The hand gestures that you see is just him representing Westville for life. What he enjoyed the most was being outdoors soaking up God’s creation, nature and fishing. He would find a favorite spot and sit for hours, whether he caught anything or not and was at his happiest. Another passion was watching and playing basketball and football with his friends. Once you heard him say “LOCK IT IN”, it was on, “OWN THE TABLE”. He was a dog lover. Rodney had a love for dogs, fast cars, motorcycles, monster jams, 4-wheelers and anything with an engine. The louder, the better and best – just loud. He also loved working for and helping anyone regardless of age, race or
rewards. He also worked with the youth in the community as an assistant coach and coach for football and basketball. He learned at an early age how to work on cars, trucks, plumbing and electronics. If you ever had any problems with your car or anything, his friends and other knew to call Fletch. He also loved being outdoors working in the yard with his mother, which lead to him starting his own business, Fletcher’s Landscaping and various jobs. His favorite sayings were “It is what it is” and “If you need me, just call.”

Rodney and his mother were extremely close. He cherished and admired her. He made sure of her safety, well-being and happiness. To see her happy made him happy. He was her “SONSHINE” and she was his “BACKBONE.” They leaned on each other and were inseparable. He was always straightforward and never sugarcoated things. Fletch was a very passionate individual. To know him was to love him. He was well respected and loved by many. He would do
anything for anybody, if he could. All of these words are the innermost feelings and quotes from the lives of many friends he touched and inspired.

He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, J.B. and Nannie Fletcher; uncles and aunts, Herman Wright, Earl Fletcher, Nancy Fletcher, Loma and Henry Stover; his maternal grandparents, Reverend Henry and Carrie “Mama 2” Catoe; Henry Jr. and Ray Catoe; Pernell and Eliza Catoe; Mattie Allen; Jessie and William Drakeford; W.
