Obituary for William Bruce Floyd

You may have known Bill because he was family. If he was your dad, grandpa, great grandpa,
uncle or cousin, whether by blood or by marriage, you probably knew him as a loving man, kind and gentle, soft spoken and knowledge about many things but mostly social studies and
history. He loved family gatherings and hearing all about what was going on in your lives.
He probably didn't reach out to you but he knew all about you anyway.

If he was your friend, you may have known him for his smile and calm demeanor. You would not see him as a jovial person and probably never knew his belly laugh and you would be right. His sense of humor was reserved for mostly himself and those close enough to catch a glimpse of his wit at times. But he would get the joke and in return give you a look of
acknowledgement that you probably wouldn't forget.

Bill loved his students and if he was your teacher, you may have known Mr. Floyd best for the
plaid jackets he wore to class. You couldn't miss him walking down the hall at Milford High
School between classes. You also knew him for his deep knowledge of social studies and
history and especially international relations. You may have been a student in one of his
"mock United Nations" classes where you actually wrote to the embassy of your assigned
country to get information that you would use to represent that country in your class' UN
meetings. One student even received some very detailed military plans that caught the
attention of the FBI! You never knew what to expect. Mr. Floyd loved going to Washington DC to get the latest on world affairs to bring back to his students for the best experience!
Bill was recognized as "Outstanding Teacher" by Michigan Council for Social Studies in 1983.

If you knew Bill through Church, you would have known him as a Godly man. He was raised in a Christian home and carried Christian values into all of his relationships and work. I
(Chris Ropeta) remember when he was trying to find something and he would say to me that he had to pray to St. Thomas to help him find what he was looking for. I would always tell him that he could pray right to the top - to Jesus - and he would laugh and tell me that I was
right.

Peace!
