James was born on January 24, 1935 in Blakely, GA to the late James and Clara Floyd. He proudly served our country in the United States Army. After leaving the military, James was employed with Tom’s Foods where he retired as a supervisor. He was a 33rd Degree Mason.
Whether it involved working outside or taking road trips, there was no doubt that James truly enjoyed spending time in the great outdoors. He loved his dogs, country music and bluegrass, but his greatest passion was his family. James was a dedicated husband and father who always did his best to provide for and take care of those he loved so much. Being with his grandchildren brought a smile to his face and a special joy to his heart. James will be missed but will be remembered with the best of memories.
Survivors include his loving and devoted wife Susan Floyd; daughters Teresa Railey, Amber Coriell (Richard) and Sinamon Schlömer (Karl); son Joseph Floyd; and grandchildren Hayden Coriell, Huxley Schlömer, Langely Schlömer, Wellsley Schlömer and Harper Coriell. Other than his parents, James is preceded in death by his brother Walter Floyd and sister Christine Summers.
