He is also survived by sisters, Bonnie Hurley Kunkle and Louise Hurley Yotz; step-sister, Peggy Kunkle Trussell; and many nieces and nephews.

Floyd was preceded in death by his father and mother; step-mother, Ruth Hurley; sisters, Ruth Hurley Roberts and Sally Hurley; brothers-in-law, Benjamin Kunkle and Silas Trussell; and step-sister, Burgoyne Kunkle Meek.
