Floyd was a lifelong member of St. Jacobs Mennonite Church. He was a prime example of selflessness. His primary purpose was for the provision of comfort and enjoyment for his family. Never lavish or ostentatious, he nevertheless made sure quality counted and taught the appreciation of finer, often simpler things: the wonder of nature, trips to the beach, bird songs and sunsets, good food, laughter to name a few. Above all was his passion for good music, Bach among his favourites. An accomplished pianist, he could also play some trumpet and organ, and sang in a quartet for many years with friends. The discipline that music demands carried into other aspects of his life, as he was meticulous and detailed in everything he set out to do, such as gardening or de-bugging computer programs he used to write. He left us many memories, much to be grateful for and a legacy of giving more than he took.
Cremation has taken place. A memorial service will be held at a future date and will be announced in the paper. As expressions of sympathy, donations to Mennonite Central Committee or House of Friendship would be appreciated by the family.
Farewell. A la prochaine.
