Donald Ray Floyd
Donald Ray Floyd was born on Feb. 27, 1958, in Marshall, Texas to the late Joe and Dot (Sellers) Floyd. The Lord welcomed him home on July 9, 2018. A memorial service is scheduled for Saturday, July14 at 2 p.m. at Christ Episcopal Church in Matagorda, Texas.
Donald Floyd was an all-around cowboy who lived a very full life. He was a proud SFA graduate and successful agricultural salesman. He loved playing and watching sports. He was an avid fisherman, hunter, traveler, and professional advice giver. His happy place was sharing these activities with his wife, friends, kids and grandkids.
Donald adored his wife of 24 years, Rebecca. Together they were always a source of strength and assistance for others during hard times. Donald never met a stranger. His arms and home were always open, and he loved people without holding back. Many of those he helped were through AA, where he celebrated 25+ years of sobriety. He changed many lives through his genuine love and support.
Donald loved his children and grandchildren fiercely. He was incredibly proud of the men Jake and Wade have become and was so joyful for his time in the lives of John and April. He was adored by his grandchildren. He never was too busy to play and always loved snuggling with his babies. He loved his brothers and sisters and is now reunited with Pam, who passed away far too young.
Donald was unconventional and unpredictable, unending in his commitment to his family and unbounding in love for us all. His faith in Jesus and his endless love of his family and friends were the bedrocks of his life.
Donald, Dad, Tick, Floyd, Pawpaw, We love you. We miss you. Thank you for your love and your life.
Donald leaves behind his loving wife, Rebecca; his children, Jacob (Tabitha) Floyd, Wade (Julie) Floyd, John (Nicki) Reeder, and April (William) Reeder, as well as his grandchildren, Allen (Macy), JW, Callie, Katie, Clara, Josiah, Joe-Joe, and Zeke, and great-grandchildren Kylee and Khloey.
