To the friends & family of Floyd...

What a fantastic man to be around. He taught me how to care for piglets. Then stay safe amongst the bulls.
I never want to pick rocks from the fields again ; probably why I haven't married. (Kidding )

I am sorry for everyone's loss, but very happy for my limited time with him & his family.

Floyd and Rosie what a couple! Always together spending quality time. Floyd always had an interesting story to tell. We really enjoyed talking to Floyd seemed always pleased to see people. He was a pillar of Nevada anyone needed anything, Floyd was the first one to show up and offer help. He was there for my mother when she needed extra help. What a great man

Floyd will be greatly greatly missed by me and our staff.
I shared many laughs and learn much from him.
He was man with many talents but very humble. I learn from his actions on dealing with people and how to be a forgiving people in any situation.
He had a passion for life and enjoyed every minute. I'm a better man, father and husband to know him and learn from his beliefs.

We have a saying around our office for the past 2 years THE WORLD NEED MORE FLOYDS.
