He was born July 19, 1923 outside Stuttgart on the River Road, in Keaton Township to Joseph Wilson and Louise Ernestine Rabeneck Glenn. Floyd lived in Stuttgart all but the last 2 years of his life. He cherished his family, kin and friends and never met a stranger. He was a really nice man and loved by all who knew him. He worked as a mail carrier at the post office for over 25 years and seemed to know most everyone in Stuttgart. Floyd was a lifelong member of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Stuttgart where he was an elder for many years.
Floyd enjoyed hunting fishing and camping with wife Joan and family. He was a very good fast-pitch softball pitcher with his team winning a military league title while in the Coast Guard. He coached little league baseball and was a good ping pong player playing in tournaments and playing at the fire station on Main Street. He ran road races all over Arkansas with his wife Joan and they participated in Team Triathlons.
