Floyd served in the United States Air Force. In 1973 Floyd spent a lengthy time in the Temple VA Hospital. There he was introduced to the Disabled American Veterans Organization. After talking to a number of patients on the ward, he realized how little the average veteran knew about their benefits. Upon his release from the hospital, he returned home and realized that there was not a local chapter of the DAV. He contacted Region III, and with their help and guidance Chapter 200 was chartered February of 1974 where he was Commander for over 25 years.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be sent to Hospice Brazos Valley, 502 West 26th St., Bryan, Texas 77803.
The Wells family would like to offer special thanks to the many caretakers who took such good care of our loving father and husband.
