FLOYD, William Lloyd passed away on March 16, 2017. Born in McRae, GA, but lived most of his life in Tampa, FL.

After serving in the military, he joined the Tampa Police Department. He retired as Major, after 23 years of service. He was a dedicated officer of the law, highly respected by fellow officers, and a long time member of the Fraternal Order of Police. After retirement, he successfully ran a small computer business, enjoyed playing golf, and square dancing. He was an avid listener of country music, loved to pick guitar and was ready to travel when anyone said "let's go". Most of all, he loved spending time with his family and Bobbie. He loved his family unconditionally and was fiercely proud of all of us. He never failed to let us know just how proud he was and how much it meant to him to have us by his side.
