Floyd was born April 29, 1933 in St. Cloud to Floyd F. & Anna (Bost) Leabch. He married Shirley A. Reiter on August 29, 1961 at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Rockville. He had a strong passion for his religion. Floyd was an over the road truck driver until his retirement. When he wasn’t spending time at the campground, Floyd would be watching the Minnesota Twins, Vikings or game shows. Floyd was a good listener, gentle and supportive and it showed when he made himself available to anyone who needed a hand. He was a devoted husband, father and grandfather. More than anything, he loved his family, especially his grandkids.

Survivors include his children, James (Tanya) of St. Cloud; Robert (Tammy) of St. Cloud; Dennis of Sauk Centre; Kimberly (Jeffery) Brannan of St. Augusta; Tammy of St. Cloud; Douglas (Heather) of St. Cloud; Jeremiah (Jen) of Pelican Rapids; brother, LeRoy (Lucille) Leabch of St. Cloud; 17 grandchildren, and many great grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his parents, wife Shirley, daughter Michelle, son Michael.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to Shelly and Heather for the extra special care they took in dad’s final days.
