|Death: ||Dec. 6, 1946|
Floyd William Andrews, son of Lewis and Sylvia Andrews was born in Decatur county, Kansas, October 22, 1900, and passed away at the Colby Hospital, Colby, Kansas, December 6, 1946 at the age of 46 years, 1 month and 14 days. He moved to Rawlins county in 1905 with his parents where he spent all his childhood and grew to manhood.
He married Sophia E. Lavall of Bird City, Kansas in 1926. To this union were born three children--Keith, Lorene and Lois, all of whom are at home.
He is also survived by one brother, Orville of Atwood, Kansas, and one sister, Mrs. Lola Robbins of McDonald, Kansas, also 12 nephews and nieces and a host of other relatives and friends.
His father preceded him in death January 29, 1939 and his mother January 20, 1941, also one sister, Mary, who died in infancy.
Floyd was a member of the Federated Church at McDonald, Kansas and always lived a Christian life. His life was devoted to his family, always thinking of them first. His friends were numbered by his acquaintances. To know him was to love him.
After his marriage, he started farming southeast of McDonald where he built a beautiful home and was always very prominent in all community affairs. He served on the township board for a number of years and was always ready and willing to help others.
Floyd will be greatly missed by his family and many friends, for a man with so fine a character as his cannot easily be forgotten.
We will not think of him as being dead but only as entering into that beautiful heavenly home not made by hands, eternal in the Heaven. The reward that God has promised them that serve faithfully.
He would not want the one he loves
To grieve for him today;
We must not say that he is dead,
for he is just away--
Away upon a journey
To a land that's bright and fair;
And though we all will miss him here
We know he's happy there--
And memories of him will bring
new comfort every day
As we recall--he is not dead
for he is just away!
Funeral services were held Monday afternoon at the Federated Church of McDonald, in charge of Rev. J. S. Coppoc. Burial was in the McDonald cemetery.
Pall bearers were John Binning, Lewis Walter, Henry Miller, Leslie Courtright, Robert Banister and Dan Downing.
