The community of Clay Hill lost one of its last remaining heroes today. Floyd Johns will be sorely missed by all who knew him. He was the bedrock of his family; a loving husband devoted to his wife of 70 years, a steadfast father who always put his children’s needs ahead of his own, and a good friend to many. Godspeed Floyd. May you be in heaven long before the devil knows you have passed. We Love You.
