S. Wayne Floyd, of Joplin, Missouri, formerly of Overland Park, Kansas, entered the splendor of heaven on Friday, February 19, 2021.

Wayne was born on February 16, 1942 in Izard County, Arkansas, to the late Lindsey Lee Floyd and Annie Lou (Morgan) Mershon. He graduated Oxford high school in Oxford, Ar. He attended Central Missouri State College. On November 16, 1963, he married Colleen Mason. Two children graced their lives, Jeffrey and Jennifer.

Wayne was a Deacon, Chairman of Finance and Sunday School teacher at Waldo Ave. Baptist Church and was instrumental in founding the Independence Christian School. Most recently, Wayne enjoyed membership with Christ Church of Oronogo, bible preaching, Life Group and fellowshipping with believers. Wayne gave his life to Christ, his family, and his community. Those who knew him were blessed by his gentle, loving, generous spirit.

Wayne was an active supporter of the community; he was a gallon blood donor with the American Red Cross, involved with Habitat for Humanity, and actively participated in church mission projects and renovation of church properties. He loved woodworking, building ramps and furniture for the elderly and handicapped.

Wayne was a Certified Purchasing Manager for Allis Chalmers, Director of Operations for Hydrogen Energy Corp. and finally a certified general residential contractor.

Wayne was preceded in death by his parents; siblings, Willa Sharp, Lenora Kratz, Lester Floyd, Ada McCoach, Geneva Wyatt, Reba Staggs, David Floyd, George Floyd, Marie Kemp, Vada Floyd, Cassie Creighton, James Floyd, Benny Floyd, Marge Eaton, and nephews David Wayne Floyd and SOC (SEAL) Matthew David Mason.

He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Colleen Floyd of the home, son Jeffrey Floyd of Joplin, daughter Jennifer Ogden and husband Wes of Joplin, grandsons Grant Taylor Floyd of Kansas City, Missouri, and Garrett Austin Floyd of Mission, Texas, sisters Anna Floyd, Erma Guiltner, and Sharon Davis, in-laws Roberta Floyd, David and Betty Mason, Hazel Rhoades, and Elizabeth Mason, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and close friends.

A private family graveside service has been scheduled for March 1.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be given to City Union Mission, in care of the mortuary.

Arrangements are under the care and direction of Mason-Woodard Mortuary and Crematory.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of you today. Wayne was one of the best uncles anyone could ask for. I enjoyed visiting with him when he came to Arkansas to visit the family. I will always remember all the stories he shared with the us. I know hard hard it is to give him up but we all know he is in a much better place. He was such a good Christian man and I know he loved each of you so very much. The past 2-3 years have been tough for Wayne and each of you, but you have so many precious memories of him to cling to. As time goes on, the pain will get better with God's help. I love all you so much and wish I could
have been there today for his service.

God Bless each of you

Wayne and Colleen have always been role models to my large extended family which includes the Mason, White, Davis and Johnson families. They showed love and respect to each other and to all who were fortunate to be near them. Our hearts are with Colleen, Jeff, Jennifer and all of their family as they honor and lay to rest their beloved Wayne.
