Floyd was loved dearly by many. He was a kind and loving soul who gave unselfishly of himself to family and friends. He never expected anything in return for his acts of kindness. He truly was a person who would rather give than receive. He was very supportive of family and friends. He was always there to be that listening ear and to lean on whenever needed. He gave the best advice even if it wasn't what you wanted to hear, he would always stay true to whatever he believed was best.
Floyd was a very classy man. He loved dressing. He truly was a social butterfly in every sense of the word. He enjoyed mingling with family and friends, he enjoyed traveling. He was always on the go. Where ever he went, he brought about smiles from many. Just his mere presence would light up a room. He was a diehard Dallas Cowboy fan. He loved music and he loved singing.
Floyd was employed with the Newport News Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Co. For 10 years. He then became employed with Morgan and Finnegan where he worked for 17 years. Floyd was a loving, dedicated father to his children, and a thoughtful, kind, and generous man to all that had the opportunity to grace his presence. He was truly a joy to have as a family member and friend. It's hard to say goodbye and words could never explain how much we hated to see him go. But God knows best, therefore we take comfort in knowing that our love one is resting peacefully with our Lord and Savior. We all love you Floyd and your memories will live on through all that knew and loved you. Until we meet again, Rest in peace. Gone But Never, Ever Forgotten.
For we know that if the earthy house of this tabernacle is dissolved, we have building a of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
