Bernard (“Dino”) Floyd became an angel on September 18, 2021 at the age of 67 after a courageous battle with cancer.   He was a beloved partner, father, brother, uncle and friend, and will be forever missed.  Dino won people over instantly with his infectious smile, his quick wit and easy-going nature.  Born Oct. 17, 1953 in San Antonio, TX, the son of Paul Eugene Floyd and Paz Hernandez Floyd, Dino was one of seven children growing up in a military family that lived in many places around the U.S. and abroad.  He graduated from Merritt Island High School in 1971 and enlisted in the Marine Corps in early 1972.  He was very proud of having served his country as a Marine and loved to strike up conversations with other veterans he would come across, often in the checkout line at Publix or the Costco deli.  After 3 years in the Marine Corps he entered Florida Technological University (now the University of Central Florida), where he obtained a degree in computer science in 1978.  He continued living in the Orlando area the remainder of his life, working in the IT field up until retirement.

He is survived by his partner of 16+ years Cindy Flores, daughter Sarah Floyd, son Aaron Floyd, former wife Jodi Floyd, sisters Lillian Waicukauski, Anne Cavanagh, Amy Floyd Nardi and Elizabeth Edwards, brothers Gerard Patrick Floyd and Joseph Floyd, and 6 nieces and nephews.

Dino was the practical joker of the family according to his sisters, who were often on the receiving end of his teasing and mischief.  He was also very steady, patient and dependable; ready to help others in need and to lend a listening ear.  His love of nature and the outdoors kept him busy with activities like fishing, surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving and skiing.  He was very handy and could fix just about anything — a DIY kind of guy with multiple projects going simultaneously.  He taught himself to make surf boards, brew beer, and was a master at smoking meat.  As we remember him now, we can imagine him teaching other angels how to fish and brew beer.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date to be determined.

    My family and I have lived next door to Dino & Cindy for the past 5 years and really enjoyed our time getting to know Dino. He and my husband shared an interest in fishing so many fishing stories, among others were shared over the years. We will all miss Dino and send our condolences to his family and friends. Matt, Kira, Hunter & Savannah

    We barely had a chance to get to know Dino before he was taken from us (much too soon). A kind, intelligent, and lovely man. He will be missed.
