In Loving Memory

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Floyd Neilon on Sunday, February 26, 2023 at the age of 84.  He was a devoted family man and astute businessman.

Floyd was a loving husband to Jeanie for over 62 years, father to Gerry (Gail) and Cindy (Keith), and marvelous grandfather and great-grandfather to Kelly (Kayne), Morgan (Steffi), Cooper (Annie), Jacob (Julie), Madison (Will), Luke (Brooklyn) and Sawyer and Sage.  Floyd was an exceptional brother to Pat and to his late sisters, Geraldine and Elva.  He will also be greatly missed by his many nieces, nephews and amazing friends.

A Celebration of Floyd’s Life will take place at the Cremona Hotel/Neilon’s Tavern, Cremona, AB on Friday, March 10, 2023 at 2:00 pm.
