He was a Padrino to many.

He was an Hermano de la Santa Cofradilla de Nuestro Padre Jesus Nazareno en La Morada de Nuestra Senora de los Santos Dolores del Alto. Floyd was a master of many talents and trades, such as master harmonica musician, bone carver, Pueblo drum player and singer, artist, vaquero, gardener, photographer, hunter, fisherman, explorer, builder and collector of many things. In the early days he was a basketball and baseball player, as well as a cook, chauffeur and friend of the late Georgia O’Keeffe.  He was also a boy scout master to the youth of the area.

For the entirety of his life, he loved his childhood home of Vallecito where he was nurtured by his grandmother Santanita. He made his ranchito here and spent as much time there as he could. His interest and impact in the community are impossible to fully express. Floyd worked at Ghost Ranch as the Assistant Ranch Land Superintendent in the Ranch Lands Dept. for 33 years. Floyd proudly served his country in the U.S. Army and in the Army National Guard for many years.  Floyd and Virginia will always be remembered for their love of dancing by many, many friends.

Floyd’s family would like to express their gratitude and appreciation to the many, family and friends who supported them during Floyd’s time of need, most especially to Kathy, Myra, his nurse Sharon, the Ambercare Team and Jacob and Selina.
