Mr. Floyd was kind, thoughtful, and fun-loving. (I'll always call him Judge Floyd.) I miss his presence on earth. I could tell he loved life - he loved being alive. Being in Judge Floyd's company was a true delight. To Mr. Floyd's dear family, I extend my deepest sympathies.

Mr. Floyd was my first boss after I graduated college, at Phillips Lytle, and I still remember his quick wit and generous spirit enlightening the office. Appreciative for his mentorship, as well as teaching me how to train my dog in the village. My deepest condolences to the Floyd family.

I can't think of a specific story of Dave. I just know that I loved and admired him. His wit, his intelligence, his generous spirit (to borrow your words). My condolences to the entire Floyd family.

We so enjoyed Mr. Floyd's officiating at the wedding of his grandson, Eric. We all laughed and cried as he spoke words full of love and humor. It was obviously a special moment for him and the newlyweds. We're so sorry for your loss.
