I met Floyd when I was selling cutting tools and visited his son's shop on Parrott Rd. Floyd was a very nice to me and quite a gentleman. I know he will be missed by many.

Dear family and friends of Floyd,
I am so sorry for your loss. During this difficult time I hope you can reflect on the memories you shared and also the hope we are given through God's word. May you find comfort from versus such as Revelation 21:4 which reads "And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, ad death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.."

I worked closely with my friend Floyd for several years at Westinghouse and he was a wealth of knowledge and a constant source of help to me any time I needed it. One of the "good ones", he will be missed by many and thought of often. Goodbye my friend...
