He hunted until he was in his late eighties. He also loved Trade Fair with Jimmy Akins; he was a regular on the show. He was quite the wheeler-dealer! He loved to buy and sale, he wasn’t attached to anything!! Floyd loved to visit with his son Travis at his lawnmower shop. He was always ready to visit and help with problems! He always had an opinion! He loved to cook and loved for you to eat it! He loved playing dominoes, forty-two was his favorite. He was ready to take on anybody at any time!! He was a Christian man of the Baptist faith. He was ordained to preach in 1971. He loved the Lord, and he loved his family and friends. He will be missed so much! Go rest high on that mountain!
