One of the Greatest Generation that left home at a very young age, not knowing when or if they would come home. When they returned, they went to work, married, had families, and contributed to the wonderful country that we live in. He joined the Navy and served in WW2 aboard the U.S.S. Gunnel Submarine. He retired from Shell Oil Company in 1987 after 32 years of service.
Floyd was preceded in death by his wife Betty, his parents, Floyd A. and Bertha, his son, Phillip Wayne, and also by his siblings, R. L. Carlisle and Maggie.
He is survived by brother Herbert and sister-in-law, Anne McMillen, plus numerous nieces and nephews. He leaves behind a son – Floyd Stephen Carlisle (Lynne), grandsons - Floyd Stephen Carlisle, Jr. (Laura), Charles A. Carlisle (Kimberly), Martin V. Carlisle, great grandson, Cody Carlisle (Doyna), and three great granddaughters – Parker, Claire, and Penny. He also leaves behind many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends to cherish his memories.
Floyd had a great life. He didn’t want anyone taking care of him. He always wanted to be the one to help others rather than be the one to receive help. He maintained his independence, living on his own and caring for himself, up until the point he had to be hospitalized shortly after his 94th birthday. He enjoyed the lake house, dancing, and traveling.
