Bob Fletcher, a former California agriculture inspector who, ignoring the resentment of neighbors, quit his job in the middle of World War II to manage the fruit farms of Japanese families forced to live in internment camps, died on May 23 in Sacramento. He was 101.
He was never much for celebrating his role in the war, and he noted that other Florin residents had helped their Japanese neighbors.
