Please know that I share my heart felt condolence in the loss of Uncle Floyd. What a blessing and honor it was to get to know him while he lived at Willow Valley! He was such an enjoyable person that would always surprise you with his varied knowledge and interests from ham radio to his love of elephants. His often quiet yet kind demeanor with a blend of unexpected humor brought such joy to our lunch table times and visits with Laura and our fellow nurses! Please know those times are indeed treasured memories tucked away in my heart! It was a true joy to have Uncle Floyd in my life!

Please accept my condolences on the passing of your Floyd. I didn’t get to know him until late in his life via his interest in ham radio. We met on the air in a series of morning meet and greet round table discussions called “nets”. Our particular net met at 9:30 in the mornings of Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Floyd always had a strong signal and could be counted on to always be a highly visible participanr. When we would meet I always told him that I hoped that my station would sound as good as his when it grew up. Floyd, you’ve left us for the big ham shack in the sky amd we,your ham radio buddies all wish you 73’s and good DX.

Floyd was a pleasant neighbor of mine for 26 years. I was intrigued by his collection of TV tubes. It was like a museum. I am thankful he allowed me to purchase his property. I taught my son’s how to do landslide cleanup after the hill behind his house slid down. I enjoyed the friendly chats we had with Floyd
May the Lord bless and comfort his family.
