May 1, 1935 – February 23, 2021
Floyd passed away in Comox, BC on Feb. 23, 2021 surrounded by his children. He was born in Edberg, Alberta on May 1, 1935. He was predeceased by his loving wife Barbara Anonson and son Dwayne Anonson, and is survived by his partner Barbie Rodgers, son Terry Anonson (Cheryl), daughters Brenda Etherington (Craig), and Valaine Anonson (Greg McElgunn), grandchildren Darren Anonson, Abbey Anonson, Mike Brooks, Chrissy Brooks, Cory Etherington, Nicole Etherington, Graham McElgunn and Randi McElgunn, his sister Elaine Jewell as well as many other family members and friends.
Floyd started out at a very young age working the coal mines of Alberta. He ventured west working various jobs ending up in Northern BC with his wife Barb and started a family.
He and his family left Terrace, BC and moved to Vancouver Island in 1976, where Floyd became a successful contract logger.
He was a staunch family man and enjoyed many years of boating, travelling and his great passion for the game of golf. There was never a gathering that didn’t involve a roaring campfire and Floyd playing his guitar and singing.
Floyd recorded his own C.D. featuring songs he wrote about his beloved Comox Valley and the game of golf. Floyd loved to meet new people and forged life-long friendships wherever he went. He was a happy, charming, generous, fun-loving, hardworking family man that will be forever missed and always remembered.
Many thanks to the staff on the 4th floor Comox Valley Hospital and the Views in Comox, Dr. Potter-Cogan, friends Doug and Annetta Vantine, Bonnie Kindlan, Dennis and J.C, Lane Thornton and Audrey Wells for their care and compassion.
Flowers gratefully declined. Donations to the Red Cross local branch, BC Cancer Society or Parkinson’s Foundation would be appreciated. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
“To the moon and back, our hero, our Dad.”
