Hello Gary, Sorry to hear your dad has passed. I'm very thankful that I had the pleasure of working with Floyd. I spent one winter working the switch job with him at Atchison. He was among one of my favorites to work with.

He was a great guy to work with in Atchison, and it was always a treat to drive up for the day off the extra board to work and play! Bless you and your family, I know you all have special memories that will sustain you until you meet again! Love ya, Mic & Rosemary Houghton

I’m so sorry to hear this. The Sutton family was so nice to our family when we moved in across the road from them, when I was in the 1st grade on Country Club Road. It was always a pleasure to see him in town as I grew up in Atchison. Mitch Johnson
