Charles David Floyd, aged 92, passed away peacefully on Friday, February 9, 2024, returning to his heavenly Father. Born in Clarkson, Tennessee, David dedicated over 60 years of his life to Neill-LaVielle Supply Company before retiring. Charles David Floyd's life was a testament to resilience, warmth, and an enduring spirit. Throughout his six-decade tenure at Neill-LaVielle Supply Company, David not only contributed to the workforce but also exemplified unwavering dedication. His work ethic left a lasting impression on colleagues and became a cornerstone of his legacy. A faithful member of Christian Assembly Church, he found solace and community there for many years. Beyond his professional achievements, David's commitment to Christian Assembly Church reflected a deep-seated faith that sustained him throughout the years. His involvement in the church community showcased a profound connection to his spiritual roots. Preceding him in death were his sons David, James “Skip” Floyd, and Kevin Louis Floyd, as well as his beloved wife and mother of his children, Mamie Earline Johnson Floyd. Following Earline's passing, David was fortunate to discover his soul mate, Edith Mae DeVore Abell. Their union, which began when David was 70 and Edith 67, blossomed into a love story that could rival those found in poetry and cinema. For nearly two decades, they journeyed the world together, enriching each other's lives until Edith's tragic passing in June 2020 from Covid. Left with a shattered heart, David was reassured by the knowledge that would be reunited someday. David's survivors, including his son Mark Floyd, stepchildren Nancy Thompson and Terry Abell (Paula); along with numerous grandchildren, nieces, and nephews, carry forward the legacy of a man whose impact extended far beyond family bonds. As we remember him, we celebrate not just the milestones but the intangible qualities that made David Floyd a beacon of positivity in the lives of those fortunate enough to know him. The children of Jesse and Edith Abell wish to especially thank David for completely spoiling their Mom, Edith, and for proving that love stories really do come true. Funeral services will be 12 p.m. Wednesday, February 14, 2024 at Christian Assembly Church, 9020 Stonestreet Road, Louisville, KY, with burial to follow in the Beth Haven Cemetery. Friends may visit on Tuesday from 6 to 8 p.m. and after 11 a.m. Wednesday all at the church.
