For what in life do you feel most grateful for?
Floyd is grateful for the gift of life itself. He had a near death experience in 2009. He had to be flown to a hospital to have a 4. hour emergency heart surgery. Later on, he saw someone else suffering from the same thing in an ER; they did not make it. Floyd considers himself a 'walking miracle.' He thanks God for keeping him alive and regularly testifies to His power when he goes to church. His situation and recovery were so intense that he is on the "Wall of Miracles" at the hospital where he had his surgery completed.
Floyd's most treasured memory
The day his son was born. Floyd was a young man and didn't think he would have kids. He was 17 years old and sacrificed his blossoming football career to raise his son. A couple years later, had a daughter. He still keeps in contact with his children even though they don't live close by. He treasures his kids and taught them to be the best that they could be. His motto was "if you're a dishwasher, be the best dishwasher out there." He also instilled the importance of putting God first and making sure that you're living your life well.
