John Anthony Floyd (December 29, 2019)

John Anthony Floyd, 34, of Greenville, Ohio, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, December 29, 2019, at University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

John was born on October 2, 1985 in Greenville to Penny (Liette) Stock, of Greenville, and the late John Charles Ralph Floyd.

In addition to his father, John was preceded in death by his grandparents, Willard Floyd, Sr., George Furlong, Lawrence and Alice Liette; his uncles, Willard Floyd, Jr., and Scott Tye; and his cousins, Eddy Floyd, and Macie Riegle.

It is always difficult to try to describe a person’s life in just a few words, however, John made it easy. John was known by many names; Big John, Uncle Bubby, and Chunk. But he was also known for his many amazing character traits. John was a full-time family best friend. He was the most selfless, caring and giving person you could ever meet. He always put everyone else first in his life. John was a member of the Emmaus Community. He loved to laugh and loved making others laugh. He was an excellent cook, best friend and confidant, and great travel partner. John loved to play cards, bowl, and was a gamer-of-all-trades. He enjoyed sports and rooting for his favorite teams, the Cincinnati Bengals and USC.

John was also a loyal and devoted son, brother, and uncle. He adored his nieces and nephews, and he meant the world to them. He loved his family, his furry best friends, and Jesus. He played a huge part in the lives of all around him and the space he leaves behind will never be filled.

In addition to his mother, John is survived by his stepfather William Stock of Greenville; his sisters, Ashley Davis and her husband, Randall, of New Vienna, Ohio, Malynda Vrazalich and her husband, Michael, of Greenville, Cassandra Stock of Troy, Ohio; and Katelyn Bowman and her husband, Joseph, of Bradford, Ohio; his grandmothers, MaryAnne Furlong of Arcanum, and Kathleen Floyd of Greenville. John also leaves behind six nieces and nephews, Johnathan Floyd, Lyla Davis, Ava Davis, Kali Davis, Michael Andrew Vrazalich, and Madalyn Vrazalich; his God-Mother and aunt, Irene Wirrig and her husband, Tony, of Greenville; special aunt and uncle, Barbi Tye of Troy, and Butch Liette of Sidney, Ohio; his "brother from another mother", Brad Brodrick of Union City, Ohio; his aunts and uncles, Kathy Floyd of New Paris, Bob Floyd and his wife, Becky, of Greenville, Joyce Clopp and her husband, Bill, of Greenville, Ed Floyd and his wife, Chris, of Greenville, Joseph Floyd of Wapakoneta, Jean Anderson and her husband, Jerry, of Greenville, Georgianna Klosterman and her husband, Rich, of Bradford, Tammy Stock of Lynn, Indiana, Kathy Beam and her husband, Rick, of Greenville, and David Furlong and his wife, Pam, of New Paris; and his countless cousins.
