He was an active member of many organizations including: The Incline Village Golf Club, Tahoe Trampers, Incline Pickle Ball Club, the Dog Park Group, the Cyclists Club, and the Motorcycle “Gang.” Floyd suffered a heart attack due to blood clots that formed in his lungs following his recent appendix surgery. Floyd was active until the last day of his life and was looking forward to his trip this past week to Yosemite with Karen and the Trampers of Incline Village. Floyd was born and raised in San Jose, California. He was the first child of 4 and had an insatiable love for outdoor adventures. He married, had 2 daughters and his drive and natural aptitude for leadership enabled him to have a career filled with accolades and honors. Eventually, he became a managing partner and retired at 52 and moved to Incline Village. The last 20 years have been non-stop experiences including woodworking, scuba diving, skiing, hiking, cycling, and golf . His latest love was playing pickle ball. Floyd will be remembered for his fun personality, great sense of humor and his passionate feeling about mentoring others and encouraging people to stretch, grow, do more and do better. He is survived by his wife Karen, his two daughters and son in laws, Kelly & Tim; Stacy & Matt, his 2 grandsons Miles & Nelson; and his 3 siblings Karen, Susan & Doug. He will be missed very much and never forgotten.
