Floyd was a wonderful backyard neighbor with an awesome Christian faith. He was always there to lend a helping hand when it was needed.

One of my favorite memories was Floyd and his motorized toy boat that he had flying across the pond. It brought the little boy out with the mischievous smile. I think it is at the bottom of the pond right now...slight boating accident! He will certainly be missed.
