Vern was born February 15, 1923 in Payne County, Oklahoma to John W. and Jane Reed Floyd. He served his country honorably in the United States Army Air Corps during WWII and was very proud to have served in uniform. One of his favorite sayings was "War is hell, but I would do it all over again for my country!" Vern met and later married Deloris Maxine Cannon on January 9, 1945 and they shared 68 beautiful years together. He worked in the petroleum industry all of his life retiring as a production foreman for Exxon Mobil, starting his own production consulting firm he ran well into his 80s. Vern was a loving and caring husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather who devoted his life to his family. He especially adored his grandchildren and great grandchildren. Vern loved spending time with them and was very supported of each one and all their endeavors. He took great pride and made great effort to know what those endeavors were and to remember everyone's birthday. There was never a more devoted father and grandfather and we will dearly miss him.
