He spent his life working and doing the things he loved the most. Floyd was an avid hunter and fisherman. He enjoyed riding around on the prairie, playing cribbage and card games, spending time with is grandchildren, family, and friends, watching wildlife in his yard, watching old western movies, and listening to old western music.
