Rev. Jan Houston Floyd

July 5, 1940 ~ February 16, 2024 (age 83)

Rev. Jan Houston Floyd, 83, of the Macedonia  Community in Evergreen, went to be with his Lord and Savior on Friday evening, February 16, 2024, in the Lower Cape Fear Angel House in Whiteville, while surrounded by his loving daughters and family.

Jan was born on July 5, 1940, son of the late Fulton Floyd and Annie Mae Williams Floyd Evans. In addition to his parents, Jan is also preceded in death by his wife, Betty Leonard Floyd, who preceded him in 1998, and his great-grandson, Jacob Langley.

Jan was a graduate of Fruitland Bible College in Hendersonville. He was a man of the highest ethical and moral standards, who loved his Lord, family and country with his entire heart. He was a true patriot and a WWII historian. Prior to going into the ministry, he worked in the shipyard in Newport News VA and helped build the USS Enterprise, something he was always proud of.

A graveside service will be conducted at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 24, 2024 at the Todd Cemetery in Clarendon (8900 Joe Brown Hwy). The family will speak to friends following the service.

The surviving family includes his children, Vicki Floyd Sewell (Alan) of Rocky Point, Sandra Floyd Jordan (Jerry) of Loris, Rebecca “Becky” Floyd Stewart (David) of Clayton; sister, Wynelle Evans (Tommy Doran) of Boston, MA; grandchildren, Tanner Houston Sewell, Channing Prince, Kayla Langley (Todd), Victoria Sewell, Austin Prince, Elizabeth Davis, Georgia Ann Stewart; great-grandson, Greyson Privette.

The family would like to express a special “thank you” to his caregivers, Sheila Rowell, Linda Nance and his good friends, James Nance, Bonnie & Steve Burge, and Billy Strickland, for their love and support through the years. The family would also like to thank his “Angel Nurses” with Lower Cape Fear LifeCare.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Tunnel to Towers Foundation, because of his love for military and first responders. Jan can also be honored by putting up a bluebird box (he raised bluebirds) or planting a tree (he loved his white pine trees).
