Floyd Demory Obituary
Floyd Addison Demory, 91, a life-long resident of Taylorstown, Va. and also born in his parents' house in Taylorstown, passed away on June 5, 2014. For the past 6 years, he had lived in Shenandoah Junction, WV with his daughter and son in law. His beloved wife of 65 years, Regina Stine Demory, had died in 2006. He is survived by one son Dennis Wayne Demory of Leesburg, VA and 2 daughters Darlene Demory Rogers of Fort Smith, Arkansas and Joyce Demory Nichols and husband Jim Nichols of Shenandoah Junction, WV, 11 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren. Besides his wife, Floyd was preceded in death by his parents Wilmer Wesley Demory and Elsie Willard Spring of Taylorstown, VA, and daughters Virginia Demory McReynolds of Tazewell, VA and Sherry Demory Stanford of Athens, Alabama. Pallbearers are John George, nephew, James Haga, grandson, Keenan Haga, grandson, Edward Johnson, grandson in law, Chuck Lively, grandson and Glen McReynolds, grandson. Honorary Pallbearers are Junior Baker, cousin and Dennis Wayne Demory, son. After working as a welder in the Navy Shipyard in Baltimore, Floyd joined the navy serving on the USS Venango during World War II receiving an honorable discharge. According to his ship's log, he left the ship on December 6, 1945 to return home to his wife, Regina. He later became one of the first licensed electricians in Loudoun County and he once wired a 10 inch TV set in his front yard to allow his neighbors to view a Joe Louis fight. He was also an avid amateur radio operator with the call sign W4UMA. When the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, he intercepted the bombing in Hawaii before it had been announced in the news. At his death, he still maintained an active license. He also loved to fish and besides building his own fishing boat, he built a boat dock at Point of Rocks. He loved fishing in the Potomac with his son Wayne and his grandson Chuck. However, his most notable accomplishment was that he was a good husband who loved his wife and he was a good father to his 5 kids. He will be especially remembered for all of the many stories he told about his tour of duty in the navy. The family will receive friends from 10am to 11am on Monday June 9, 2014 at the Loudoun Funeral Chapel, 158 Catoctin Circle, SE, Leesburg, VA 20175 prior to the service held at 11am with Pastor Bill Turney officiating. Immediately following the service, interment will be at the Lovettsville Union Cemetery followed by a luncheon at Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church in Taylorstown.
