Jody Michael Floyd

September 7, 1971July 5, 2013

Jody Michael Floyd, born September 7, 1971 in Baton Rouge and a resident of Greenwell Springs, passed away on Friday morning, July 5, 2013 at home at the age of 41 after a yearlong battle with cancer. He was a graduate of Belaire High School, attended Holmes Junior College in Mississippi on a baseball scholarship as a southpaw pitcher, and then attended Louisiana State University. Jody was in sales with a local ice cream distributor prior to his illness and grew up as a member and attended Blackwater United Methodist Church. Jody was an avid sportsman and especially had a passion for fishing. He has fished fresh-water far and wide, and in 2004, Jody was the BFL Angler of the year. He loved hunting with his friends, and spent much time on the golf course and on his cycling bike. Jody, over the years, brought home many homeless animals as he couldn’t tolerate them being hungry or abused and had a special bond with each and every one. He also rarely missed a LSU baseball or football game as well as a Saints game. He was a loving son, brother and uncle who will be dearly missed by all who knew him. He is survived by his mother, Verna Johnson Floyd; two brothers, James “Jamie” H. Floyd Jr. of French Settlement and Linda Horne, and Jeffrey Kyle Floyd and wife Sandy of Parker, Texas; one niece, Jennifer Floyd of Prairieville; and girlfriend, Shelley Nettles of Denham Springs. He is preceded in death by his father, James “Jimmy” H. Floyd Sr. Visitation will be held at Greenoaks Funeral Home on Monday, July 8, 2013 from 5pm until 9pm and resume on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 from 12pm until funeral service at 2pm. Interment will follow in Greenoaks Memorial Park. Pallbearers will be Bryan Stock, Todd Rabalais, Andy Williams, Chad Burks, David Cavell, and Deon Landry. Honorary Pallbearers will be James M. Crane, Jody Vallet, Wayne Tucker, and Col. Mike Barnett. The family would also like to extend their love and gratitude to Jody’s “second family”, Ben and Octavia Williams, and their sons Allen Ray, Andy, and Tim Williams.

Mrs. Floyd and to the Floyd Family,
my prayers are that God will give all of you the strength to accept His will. Please know that Jody was loved by many. Even though I only met Jody a few times, he always was a pleasant young man who could put a smile on your face.I will ways remember the time that he sent visiting the veterans at the Louisiana War Veterans Home in Jackson, La. where he had a chance to met my dad and all that he did to put a smile on their faces as well.
