Obituary for William Floyd
William Paul Floyd, Walden,
“Come Day, Go Day”
It is with great sadness that I have to write about the passing of our dear brother, Willie on Thursday, May 10, 2012 at the Fisherman’s Memorial Hospital, Lunenburg.
Willie was born on February 8, 1948 in Waterloo, a son of the late Simeon and Vera (Nauss) Silver.
He started working in the woods at the age of 14. He spent some time in Maine, picking apples and many summers in Rodney, Ontario, hanging kiln on several tobacco farms, which he became a master of it, but he always returned to the woods, a job he loved.
He will be missed by me going on fishing trips to the Bog Brook, by my brother for his sound advice and by his many friends in Walden who could always count on Willie for making them laugh with one of his jokes or for always having a come back line.
He is survived by brothers, Eddy (Janet), Wayne (Marina), nephews, Cory (Cheryl), Kevin, Daniel, Michael and grand-niece, Natalie.
He was predeceased by a brother, Arthur, step-father, Wilfred Nauss.
Special thanks to all the staff at Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital and the Palliative Care Unit for looking after Willie and many, many thanks to all his friends in Walden who looked after Willie these last several years, which enabled him to stay at home.
Funeral Arrangements are under the direction of the Dana L. Sweeny Funeral Home, 11213, Hwy. # 3, Lunenburg. A memorial gathering of friends and family will take place at a later date.
Memorial donations may be made to the Walden Fire Department, the Canadian Cancer Society or the Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital.
