Villiard, Floyd “Squeek” (3 FEB 1937 - 1 MAR 2018)

Floyd “Squeek” Villiard passed away peacefully in the presence of his family on Thursday, March 1, 2018 after a short battle with lung cancer.

Floyd was born on Feb. 3, 1937, in Weigor, to Robert and Zelena Villiard. He grew up in Exeland, enlisting in the U.S. Air Force in 1954 where he made a career of military service until retiring in 1975.

Upon retiring, he continued his education completing a degree in automotive engineering technology from Weber State College, returning to the civil service at Hill AFB until 1992.
He was a proud Vietnam veteran, serving in Da Nang, Viet Nam in 1968-69, and Native American, as a member of the Wisconsin Lac Courte Oreilles tribe.

He married Judy Brainerd of Bruce on May 15, 1959. They began their military adventure at Rantoul AFB, Ill., taking them to posts around much of the United States, including Patrick AFB, Fla. in support of the Apollo moon missions, and overseas to Clark AFB in the Philippines. His final post was at Hill AFB, Utah, where they ultimately retired, alternating between their home in Layton and their summer cabin on Blueberry Lake in Hayward.

Floyd is survived by wife, Judy; his daughter, Brenda (grandson Zak Kennedy); his sons, Jeff (wife Kim, step-grandson, Josh) and Bruce (Kay); as well as siblings, Betty Herron and Isabelle Moudry.

He was preceded in death by his brother, Albert Villiard and his sister, Mary Lou Mleczko.
Burial will be in the Veteran’s Memorial Cemetery in Spooner.

A celebration of his life will be held at their Blueberry Lake home later in the summer.

A big thank you to Hearts of Hospice for their support and guidance for the past two months and especially to Nurse Kylie.
