Mr. Fletcher Terrell Collier, 87, of Charlotte, formerly of Toccoa, GA graduated to heaven to be with his Lord and Savior on Thursday, December 24, 2020 following a period of declining health.

Fletcher was born on August 28, 1933 in Toccoa, GA to the late Charles C. and Delia Garland Collier. He was a United States Army Veteran.
