Floyd was the epitome of a "good guy" and loving husband. We shared many special occasions together, creating gifts for Judy, who he so enjoyed spoiling!

WE ARE POWERFULLY AFFECTED BY FLOYD'S PASSING. HE WAS SUCH A VITAL RADIANT FRIEND. DURING THE YEARS WE LIVED TOGETHER IN SAN ANTONIO, OUR FAMILIES WERE INTERTWINED. WE WILL MISS HIS HUMOR, HIS EXUBERANCE, HIS KINDLINESS, HIS FRIENDSHIP. HE MEANT SO MUCH TO US. WE SPENT SO MANY DELIGHTFUL HOURS TOGETHER IN THE WHELLAN AND RUTMAN HOMES, IN FRIDAY NIGHTS TOGETHER, IN THE HAVURAH, IN SHUL, IN MEETINGS DEVOTED TO THE JEWISH COMMUNITY, AND IN ADVENTURES IN AND AROUND SAN ANTONIO.

JUDY, MICHAEL, DAVID, AND REBECCA, MAY YOU BE COMFORTED IN KNOWING HOW WELL-LOVED HE WAS.

I first met Floyd some years ago at a Jewish Meditation retreat. We met by chance but we became loving friends by choice.
Judy, please know that Floyd was a blessing to me. I shall deeply miss his happy, upbeat voice on the phone.
