    I met Floyd while he was the manager of the Lighthouse in Sacramento in 1997. We traveled throughout northern Ca calling on every city fleet yard we could, trying to sell PSE Amber lighting. I met Michael, his son as a result and eventually did the same routine with him. I loved Floyd’s laid back but forthright style. I also loved his stories about living life and his family. One funny story dating us both, he let me use his Address because Cellular one offered non roaming rates and the Bay Area did not. I still have my 916 number from way back then. I condition a friend. He will surely be missed
