Floyd was a car enthusiast, whether it was collecting old cars or working on them. He was somewhat of a homebody, but for 25 years, six days a week, he gathered with the “breakfast club” at Bob Evans Restaurant. He also enjoyed playing dominoes and hanging out around the house, working in the yard. Floyd loved his family and friends and enjoyed the time he was able to spend with them.
