Floyd was born in Huddy, Kentucky on August 11, 1944 to the late Alvie Lee and Nola (Hensley) Green. Floyd attended Wahama High School in West Virginia.
Floyd met the love in his life, Sally Elizabeth Adkins in Clintwood, Virginia and the two were wed on October 19, 1964. Together, Floyd and Sally moved to Ohio to be near Sally’s family. Floyd found employment at Quaker Oats in Marion retiring in 1997 as a machinist.
Floyd was a hardworking man always providing for his family and was willing to help anyone in need. Floyd could often be found playing his guitar and listing to his favorite Blue Grass music.
