Floyd was a 1962 graduate of Jamesport High School in Jamesport, Missouri and worked in Construction in the Kansas City area.  He moved to Mt.

He loved his family and working on the farm.  He was always there when someone needed help.  The cross that stands along I-44 near Mt. Vernon, is a testimony to his love for his Savior Jesus Christ.
