Mack L. Fetters, Bourbon, passed away on March 27, 2018.
Fetters, the son of Lester and Ruth Fetters, was born and raised in Bourbon, where he lived his entire life. After graduating from Bourbon High School in 1945, Fetters married the love of his life, Melba (Koontz) on Easter Sunday, March 25,1951. They celebrated their 67th anniversary just last Sunday. In addition to giving his life to farming, Fetters labored on behalf of his Church and community by serving on numerous boards including: Church Consistory, Sunday School Superintendent, Marshall County Planning Commission, Triton School Board and many others.
Fetters loved Jesus, adored his wife, loved his five children and their spouses, his 13 grandchildren, and eight great grandchildren. By those outside of his immediate family, Fetters was known as a good friend – someone who you could trust to come to for sound advice or a word of encouragement. He was a good man who lived a kind, generous and honorable life. Faithful to the end, Fetters passed joyfully and peacefully into the arms of God. Some of the last words that he spoke to his family were, “Boy oh boy, what a great life!”
Fetters is survived by his wife Melba, and children: Jeff Fetters (wife Marty) of Owatonna, MN; Greg Fetters (wife Tanya) of Charlotte, NC; Jan Miller (husband Barry) of Plymouth; Mark Fetters (wife Beth) of Carmel; and Rod Fetters (wife Paris) of Ossian.
