He met his companion Beverly Henrichon from Florida and has lived in Englewood, FL with her for the past 17 years.
Floyd was a family man and always there to help whenever needed. He loved all kinds of racing – NASCAR, Sprint card, and go-carts. Over the years he attended many sporting activities that involved his family members. He was a long-time St. Louis Cardinals fan and if he didn’t attend he was “glued to the tube” when they played. He also enjoyed going to or watching Indiana University basketball. In his later years while in Florida he became an excellent wood carver earning many awards and ribbons. He was a member of the Charlotte County Wood Carvers, Myakka River Wood Carvers, North Port Wood Carvers, and Cultural Center Wood Carvers.
