Floyd Waters, 69, passed away on July 10, 2021 in Richfield. He was born January 4, 1952 and raised in Richfield where he loved spending time with his family and friends. He loved the outdoors. He grew up with three brothers and five sisters.
His greatest accomplishment was his seven children. Floyd loved teaching them about sports, fishing and trapping among other things. He liked to work hard. He was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He loved the Church and would share his testimony to anyone who would listen.
Floyd worked for UDOT before retiring and starting a business with his son. He loved spending time in his garden and was always looking for someone he could share his harvest with. He had a generous heart and kind spirit.
It was hard to take Floyd seriously as he loved playing pranks on his friends and family. We will miss his lighthearted pranks and fish tales. We can only imagine what kind of chaos he is causing on the other side.
We love you Dad.
