Floyd was born August 17, 1947 in the Town of Holton to Melvin and Ruth (Umlauft) Juedes. He attended Draper Grade School, St. Louis Catholic School and was a 1967 graduate of Colby High School. Floyd was a dairy farmer on a century farm and raised pheasants. He stocked his private pond with game fish and was a member of Ducks Unlimited.
Floyd donated land to the Dorchester Sportsmen's Club (of which he was a member) to establish a trap shooting range. He also shot trap in Thorp and at Sparky's Sport Shop in Colby. He was known to be a remarkable shot.
Floyd enjoyed playing cards at the VFW in Colby on Sunday afternoons as well as other locations in Athens, Stetsonville and Medford. He also enjoyed playing pool, dice and watching the Green Bay Packers with friends. Floyd also enjoyed hunting deer with his Dad, uncles, cousins and hunting buddies.
An avid bowler, Floyd bowled in Dorchester for Maurina Funeral Home and in Abbotsford for Wickersham Jewelers. During the last few years, Floyd had the privilege of being a passenger on his friend's (Ray Wehe) tractor/wagon rides that he truly enjoyed.
Floyd is survived by his sister, Karen (John) Danen of Farmington, MN; nephew, Kevin of Lakeville, MN; niece, Suzanne (Sean) Hanrahan and great-nephew, Donovan Hanrahan, 5 1/2 years old of Lakeview, MN.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Melvin (2003) and Ruth (2014).
Floyd's loving spirit for people, especially children, will continue on, as he gave the gift of life by tissue donation through RTI Donor Services and the Lions Eye Bank of WI in partnership with St. Joseph's Hospital, Marshfield.
