Shocked to hear the passing of Floyd. Got to know Floyd when he worked at McClintock’s Electric operating the trencher while installing underground for Ohio Power. Through the years would see Floyd at different positions wether doing electric work or the restaurant 250. Floyd was proud of his service in the Army serving in Vietnam as we both had converation’s about “in country”. He often kidded Janet as they both graduated from Wooster High. We often have long conversations when we met wether it be our military, electric or muscle cars. Will miss Marcia and Floyd two of the nicest people. To the Cornelius and Ewing Family Our Heart Felt Condolences from Florida.

Todd and Tracy and family. So shocked and sad to hear of Floyd's passing, we always joked with each other, will miss him and Marsha, they were wonderful people.

I rejoice with Floyd as he is now where his heart has always been, with this beloved Marcia. I carry in my heart and sole the infinite number of times we laughed and cried together, with and without kids around. I feel blessed with having had Floyd as a friend and then blessed again when he brought Marcia into his life to share. My memories will always remain. Rest in peace my dear friend.

Floyd was one of the most genuine people in world! Shy and funny, caring and kind, he was always there for you!! He and Marcia can be together forever now!! See you later Floyd!!

Rest in peace, Gary has already joined you. Glad to have known, will see you soon.
