Floyd was always eager to volunteer in his community. He was always there to help friends, family and strangers that crossed his path. Floyd had a very strong work ethic and taught this to his family. He influenced and taught many young men the same good values.

He was never too old for new adventures like ziplining in Mexico, deep sea fishing and parasailing.
