Floyd was born on April 24, 1937, in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He was the son of Myrlan B. and Lucy Ann (Cates) Blackwell. During the time Floyd was growing up he was raised in the Keystone and Sand Springs area where he attended school. Following the completion of his education Floyd began working for Pasha Auto in Tulsa and then later worked at the Sand Springs Sand Plant. Floyd has also worked for Birmingham Steel before accepting the position with Kerr Glass. Floyd worked for Kerr Glass as the maintenance man from 1962 till the closure of the facility in 1993. Floyd still enjoyed working so he began working odd jobs in the Cleveland Area from mowing lawns to doing minor repairs for people in the community.

Floyd enjoyed working and that was his hobby. He loved to help friends with their projects and loved to spend his time helping them and his family. Floyd also made ceramics for his family. One of the most memorable vacations he took with his family was when they visited five states in four days.


He was preceded in death by his father Myrlan B. Blackwell, mother Lucy Ann Blackwell, two sisters Lahoma Phelps and Naomi Conkwright.
