Floyd Clayborn Whitaker

Wytheville, Va.

Floyd Clayborn Whitaker, age 49, passed away Sunday, October 7, 2018 at Wythe County Community Hospital, Wytheville, Va.

Floyd was a good man. He was a loving son, husband, step-father, and friend. Floyd had a love of collecting. He loved books, comic books, and guns. He was proud of his country and his service in the Army. Floyd enjoyed making Kendra and the kids laugh; he’d call Kendra at work everyday and when she laughed, his job was done. Psalm 139 tells us God knew us before we were formed, and our days were numbered while there were none. Floyd loved by God. He is loved and missed by family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his grandmother, Bertha Doyle Whitaker.

Floyd is survived by his wife, Kendra Whitaker; daughters, Christine Wyatt and Heaven Wyatt; son, Hunter Wyatt, all of Wytheville, Va.; father, Charlie Whitaker of Adwolfe, Va.; mother-in-law, Ginger Hurst of Floyd, Va.; uncle and aunt, Dayton and Gladys Owens; three step-sisters; several cousins; and special friends, Freddie Jackson and Ed Hagy.

Funeral services will be held Sunday, October 14, 2018 at 7 p.m. at Seaver-Brown Chapel with the Reverend Dan Gray officiating. Graveside services will be held Monday, October 15, 2018 at 11 a.m. at Rose Lawn Cemetery with Military Rites conducted by Francis Marion VFW Post #4667.

My sympathy to all - what a shock for you all. Remember many good conversations with Floyd and his sharing his knife collection. We shared our deep connection to all the family, his father, Carrie, Ma and Bertha. Many memories of being with the family through the years. Carole Komenda

I have such fond memories of Floyd as a little boy and as he grew up I enjoyed visiting with my cousin. Sending sincere sympathy to his family and friends.
