Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire family during this difficult time. Floyd always had a smile on his face and he was such a "Jokester" He will truly be missed on our camping trips and end of the summer bashes. Rest in peace Mr. Floyd

I’m sorry to hear of Floyd’s passing. The Campbells and Sands have a lot of great memories from years ago. Hugs to all of you and I wish I could be there, but I will be on vacation. Again I’m sorry.
