Floyd married Robin (Edwards) on October 19, 1980. Floyd was a perfect example of a family man. He worked, provided, and cared for his family and extended family with complete dedication, becoming a father figure to Marie Silvers, Alicia Carlisle, and many others who had no father of their own. He taught the true meaning of selfless love by loving God first, his wife with passion, his daughters and grandchildren with devotion, and tolerating his sons-in-law.

Floyd spent his retired days building bicycles for his grandkids, furniture, picnic tables, porches for his family, and watching sci-fi movies. Floyd was an avid gun collector and supporter of the 2nd amendment, often taking his boys out to learn about gun safety and shoot. His favorite pastimes were debating politics, telling Navy stories, and arguing about anything with anyone who would take up the challenge. Floyd passed on his knowledge of wood working, design, mechanics, love of liberty and the freedoms of America, faith in God, and general know-how to his sons-in-law and grandkids. He was a member of the McCormick’s Creek Pentecostal Church.
Floyd is survived by his wife, Robin Allison of Spencer; Daughters, Heather Sebastian (Greg) of Bourbon, Indiana, Lydia Clark (John) of Spencer, Indiana; stepfather Terry Elwell; Seven grandchildren, Lee, Jamin, Joshua, Ky, Molly, Kyra, and Zane.
