They made their home in Flint, Michigan and on March 28, 1983 they were blessed with the arrival of their daughter, Jennifer. Floyd retired from General Motors in 2008 where he worked for 37 years in skilled trades as a welder. Although he enjoyed many activities including square dancing, hunting, fishing, camping, biking, snowmobiling and boating, his greatest enjoyment was sharing it with the ones he loved the most, his family.
