Dear Marie and Family , I'm so sorry to hear of Floyds passing. He was good friend to many including myself. I can hardly think of a world without Floyd or one of his wonderful stories. Thank you for sharing him with us! He will be deeply missed by many from the very youngest to oldest! Floyd was able to connect with just about everyone! I know how much he loved his entire family by the way he spoke of you all ! I'm so glad I got to know him as a friend even if he got the best of me from time time dealing on old tractors! I know he is at peace now at he left the world a better place! He will be missed by many! God Bless you and your family! Love Bob & Julie McGhee Zoe, Will and Jude

To all my brothers(Larry, Alan, Mark, Greg, Mike) and second sisters,(Liz and Donna), your Dad was a good man and like a father to me because of all the time I spent hanging around your house playing and growing up with you guys. I can say I learned how to drive when your Dad built that tractor/car and we used to drive it out in the fields. To Marie, (My other Mother) To Say I'm so sorry just doesn't put into words how much sorrow I feel for your loss. When you and Floyd came to my wedding... that really meant a lot to me. May God Bless all of your family. Randy

floyd was a close friend of my dad caswell woosley,we dairy farmed and floyd would deliver feed to us weekly,making sure we was last on his route that day,so he and my dad could talk gossip and tractors.at one time we had 5 case tractors and floyd would come running when called to help get them working again. floyd was a good friend to everone i always stopped to see him in the tent at the fair to say hi and gab for a few until the next friend stopped. rest in peace floyd and say hi to my dad.
