Floyd enlisted in the Air Force Reserves and was stationed at Lackland Air Base in San Antonio, Texas. On September 2, 1967, he married Carol Kidd. 
 
Floyd worked for Rudolph Libbe for over 40 years.

I was fortunate to have been Floyd's fuel man the past several years. I treasured our many conversations over the years. He loved to talk about his family, his years at Rudolph Libbe, and farming. Never saw him without his hat on, a toothpick in his mouth, and a pinch of tobacco. I will miss Floyd, he was a gem! Prayers for strength and comfort in the coming days.

Grabarczyk Family,
Floyd and I were both members of the 180th during the Berlin crisis call up. He was a very good friend and talented craftsman. He even installed a patio at my home in Toledo. My wife, Sherri and I offer our deepest sympathies for your loss. Remember all the good times you had together.
