The short time of knowing Floyd, he was energetic, kind and was loved. He is no longer in pain. God’s grace to his family and friends.

So sorry for you loss. I met Floyd (Jr.) a few years ago on a bike ride. Since that ride we shared many enjoyable conversations at the gym on the weekends. He often shared stories and his love for his children and grandchildren, and his family obviously gave him much joy! I’ll miss seeing “Junior” at the gym (and on his bike), his friendly demeanor and sharing those weekend conversations.
