Mourning the passing of Pat Fletcher

We are saddened to announce that Patrick H. Fletcher, our long-time Trails Chair, passed away earlier this week.

Pat worked tirelessly for the AMC, for our chapter, and for his beloved M-M / New England Trail. As Trails Chair for more than two decades, Pat volunteered countless hours building shelters, maintaining trails, organizing, and working with other local groups to maintain and improve the trails under his purview. In 2009, Pat was a leader in achieving the designation of the New England National Scenic Trail.

Those who remember enjoying the outdoors with Pat speak of his infectious enthusiasm, and of how eager and willing he was to share his knowledge about the trails and their history. A resident of Westfield since 1978, Pat enjoyed bird hunting, salt water fishing, mountain biking, and of course hiking local trails.

The AMC Berkshire Chapter would like to express our sincere condolences to Pat’s wife Kathy and all of his family, and convey our immense gratitude for Pat’s dedicated service to the chapter.
