Floyd passed away November 10, 2023 at Carrington Court in South Jordan, Utah.\n\nBorn June 23, 1936 in Salt Lake City to Leland Francis Druce and Mary Ellen (McDonald) Druce.\n\nMarried Karen Horrell in 1960 and had two children. Later divorced in 1966.\n\nRemarried in 1969 to Nancy Stevenson and remained married until her passing on April 3, 2014. (Solemnized in the LDS Temple.)\n\nDad served a stint in the US Army during the period of 1956-1958. Honorably discharged in 1962. Worked at Kennecott Copper for 24 years before retirement in 1985. Dad was a restless soul that enjoyed exploring Utah. He particularly enjoyed exploring sites out West that were related to the railroad and the pioneers.\n\nDuring his glory days, he was an avid waterfowl hunter. He would begin the season at the Public Shooting Grounds and Locomotive Springs and chase the freeze-over South to Farmington Bay to end the season.\n\nHis hunting partners were many and he relished the commaradery.\n\nPapa had four grandsons that he was very proud of. A great joy was watching each one raise hell when they were little shavers. He has a great-grandson whom he garnered joy in watching him raise Cain while wrecking Papa and Meem’s house.\n\nTowards the end, he also gained three great-granddaughters, but the dementia had progressed to where he could not grasp these precious additions to the family.\n\nFloyd is preceded in death by his mother, father, sisters Shirley (Don) and Carrol (Bill). He is survived by his sister Pat (Patsie) (Jerry).\n\nHe is also survived by his children LeeAnn (Mike) and Brian (Chris), his grandchildren Zac (Angie), Jake (McKenzie), Nolan “Nollie Ollie” and Sam (Raven), great-grandchildren Brody, Norah Belle, Penelope, and the newest member Taylee.\n\nDad, may your mind be once again free of the demons of dementia. Perhaps the Lord will take you that one final time to Locomotive Springs.
