Floyd & I were great friends. We stopped by to visit him & his wife Gloris a number of times.
I had tried to phone him a number times in the last year, but no answer. Just happened to look on the internet & found the obituary.

Floyd ( as well as Gloris Dean) were the best neighbors anyone can have. They always remembered my kids special days as they were growing up.
I would spend many hours talking to Floyd and he would tell me stories about the old days and shared lots of great wisdom.
He had strong Christian and conservative beliefs and did not mind sharing them.
He will be missed as he was one of the finest men I have ever met.
