In Loving Memory of Floyd Toynes,


God Blessed the world with Floyd on May 25,1932.  He was the third of five children born to Charlie and Neoma Bonne Toynes.  Some may believe that Floyd was CHALLENGED, until you got to know and love him, when you would discover that he was one of the most CAPABLE people in the world.  Floyd was born with the gift of love and compassion!  God knew that he would need these qualities so that he could teach and show others what unconditional love looked and felt like.  That’s why God Blessed us with Floyd for 88 years!  What Floyd lacked in speech, he made up for in action—he loved everyone! 


Neoma raised all of her children in the Church.  Floyd had a special connection with God and Zion Hill Missionary Baptist Church, where he was a Founding Member and attended faithfully.   Floyd loved praising God at Zion Hill and it became his special Place of Worship and Safe Haven!


Floyd never met a stranger!  He made you feel genuine love when you first met him—he was a blessing to all.  Floyd loved his family and his community.  He moved in with his sister Arvella Slade after their mother became ill before she went to be with the Lord in 1984.  Arvella, the oldest sibling, lived in the same neighborhood; and cared for her brother like he was her child.  They had a special loving bond for over 33 years, until Arvella received her wings.  Floyd had such a strong connection with his community that Arvella made arrangements for him to reside in the Heritage Park Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Facility upon her death.  This was a loving and caring decision which allowed Floyd to remain connected to his beloved community.


Floyd had many nieces, nephews and cousins who loved him very much and whom he loved.  He has one surviving sister, Mrs. Daisy B. Williams, of San Antonio, Texas.  Daisy had a virtual conversation with Floyd the day before he met Jesus.  His final words to her were, “I’m going home!”  We now know that it was God reaching out to welcome him to His Heavenly Kingdom!  Floyd had many who supported his care and well being—far too many to name; but a few are Daisy Williams, Thurston Slade, Deacon Joe Williams, Brother Charles Bowen, Delores "Dee" Houston, the staffs of Conley Guerrero Senior Center and Heritage Park and last but certainly not least, Pastor J.C. Chambers and the entire Zion Hill congregation.


Floyd was preceded in death, by his parents Charlie and Neoma Bonner Toynes, Sister Arvella Toynes Slade, and Brothers Charles and Eugene Toynes!


Free At Last, Free At Last, Thank God Almighty Floyd is Free At Last!!!


I also want to thank all the family and friends for their prayers, calls, flowers and condolences!  A Special Thanks to Ms. Deborah Duncan-Hurdle and Ms. Darlene Elder!
