Nevered married or had children, he loved to farm
and meet with the local friends each night in the Cafe for
Coffee and conversation. Floyd was a content person worked not only his own farm but helped other farmers out and was always good natured.
Floyd stood almost 6.2 bald wore glass's,and from what I was told still had his original teeth in his elderly years.
He rode horse's to school his whole life and buried Model A car in his early days in the pond behind his farm house. I remember Floyd saying he wish he had that car know, he sell it for what people pay for cars these days.
