Floyd "Festus" Wilbur Griffith was born January 15, 1943, in Saint Joseph, Missouri to Fern and Neta (Phelps) Griffith.

Floyd grew up attending country school while living and working on the family farm in Clayton township in Taylor County. On January 23, 1978 Floyd was united in marriage to Julie Jo Lininger and two children were born of the union, Lori Jo and James Earl. The couple later divorced.

Floyd was always on the go and always willing to help with any work that needed done. He enjoyed working on the farm and helping many neighbors, doing dozer work, through the years. Floyd also enjoyed working at the Bedford Sale Barn. Floyd could always be found listening to Paul Harvey or the grain markets on the radio and when his children were little he enjoyed taking his family to various state fairs to look at the newest farm machinery. In later years he enjoyed keeping up on the kids and grandkids latest adventures.

Left to cherish his memory are daughter, Lori Bolinger and husband Gary of Bedford, Iowa; son, Earl Griffith and wife Megan of Gravity, Iowa; six grandchildren, Brodie and Krista Bolinger, Jaycee, Jaydon, and Jaxy Knight and Brooks Wyatt Griffith; sister Evelyn Holle and husband John; niece, Brenda Thatcher; cousins, David and Larry Cox; along with many other family members and friends.

Preceding Floyd in death were his parents, Fern and Neta Griffith.

May God grant comfort and strength to those who mourn Floyd's passing.
