Being fairly new to this group I had just met Floyd at the Alabama rally after getting some bling through his web page. He really impressed me. A really great person.

When Handy man Fowler called me to tell me Floyd had died, it was a sad call. Eddie said that he had talked with Floyd over the weekend and he was not feeling well, thought he might have pneumonia and was waiting to hear from his doctor. Eddie told him to go to the emergency room and not play around with this.

This morning Floyd's son-in-law went into Floyd's home and found him dead in his chair.

Eddie will let me know the details for the funeral ASAP.

Very sad day indeed for the SSR community!

Floyd you are already missed! A great loss of a wonderful person. RIP my friend.

You are very correct, except that he will be missed not just by many but by ALL THAT KNEW HIM!

Floyd was gifted and never hesitated to share himself with others. He set that bar pretty high. His creativity has benefitted so many of us and he will be sorely missed. He was generous and kind to so many in the SSR family. His memory will live in many of us for a long, long time......

Rest in peace, brother.

Wow, I am so sad to hear of this. May God bless his soul.

Floyd was a great guy. Crystal and I enjoyed his company (and Nancy's) at many Maggie Valley Rallies.

He will be missed by so many. This year's rally will just not be the same without him.

Floyd will always be remembered with this group. Many of us got to meet him in person at various events and there are so many more of us that have items on our trucks that we purchased from him. Every time we get together, be it a large group or small, I can't recall how many times I get asked about some part and replying that "I got that from Floyd". And I have asked that same question when looking at fellow fanatic's R's. We were all privileged to know him.........

Sorry to hear this.
Couple years ago I had a lengthy and very enjoyable conversation with Floyd, just SSR stuff in general.
It seems he had a box of "information" he felt might be of value to me to share on the forum - research/history type stuff.
Guess we both sort of forgot about it

Earlier this evening Eddie Fowler aka Handyman Fowler, Floyd's buddy and running-mate called. He had lunch with Floyd's daughters today and of course they are distraught, as we all are. He ask me to post the daughter's wishes to sell Floyd's [3] SSR's, 03 Purple w/low miles, his daily driver, a 06 Redline Red FPR w/90K+ and just expertly repaired from an accident and his Redline Red parade truck #14 & trailer, mileage unknown. Don't know how immediate this is. Funeral services will be 11 AM Saturday. Visitation will be tomorrow from 4 PM to 8 PM at the Alexander Funeral Home in Gallatin, TN. Please attend if you are close enough to get there. You will be representing all of us who cannot. Please lift up to God the family along with Eddie and his wife who were like family to Floyd especially after his wife passed away. This is a tragedy beyond belief for all of our SSR family.

The 03 purple is a Signature Series, she might need some help to get the asking prices right on all 3.
