It’s unclear what caused his death as the band has said nothing in that direction, and the family has also not spoken about it. 

Anyway, Fletcher was an important musical figure, and the news of his death has made many fans across the world feel sad. Some of them have also taken to social media to recall their best memories of him and the band he co-founded. 

Born in Nottingham, England, in 1961, Fletcher was a musician of many parts. He was a keyboardist for Depeche Mode, which has Dave Gahan and Martin Gore as co-founders. The group released over a dozen albums, including the 2017 “Spirit.” Fletcher was also a successful DJ who went on several international tours. He’ll be sorely missed for his contributions to global music.
