Floyd Alman Flory, 85, Yakima, Washington, passed away peacefully in his sleep at his home June 9, 2004, his family and faithful dog, Rex, at his side. At his request, there will be no formal service.
Floyd was born in Eureka, Montana, March 13, 1919, to Earl and Susan Flory and grew up as one of eight children in Bonners Ferry during the Depression years. From 1942 to 1945, he served in the U.S. Navy in the South Pacific during World War II.
During his life, he held many careers; police officer in Los Angeles, California, chief of police in Benton City, Washington, carpenter, plumber, watchmaker and jeweler.
He retired from the Yakima Firing Center in 1986, and bought a small farm, where he resided with his wife and raised a few hobby farm animals.
He was always a tinkerer, and enjoyed fixing things around the place.
Floyd is survived by his wife, Lois; sons Chet Flory, Spokane, Hank Reno, Richland, Washington, and Michael Flory, Selah, Washington; daughters Michaele Thompson and Cheryl Myers, both of Yakima; grandchildren Frank and Terri Englebert, both of Yakima; brothers Alvin Flory, Bonners Ferry, and Delbert Flory, Spokane; and his faithful border collie, Rex.
He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers Earl, Lester, Ralph and Edward Flory, sister Violet Sprague and daughter Patricia Flory.
Floyd will return to his boyhood home June 19, and he'll be buried at Grandview Cemetery in Bonners Ferry.
