Floyd Cornett, 74, of rural Denver, passed at 6:00 am, Saturday, Nov. 30, 2019 at his residence.
Floyd has always been a caretaker of many. He retired from Wabash Alloys after 38 years of employment. Soon after his retirement he helped take care of his mother and brother whom eventually passed away. He then took care of his wife Myrna (way better than any nurse) and she passed away from renal failure in 2012. Floyd found love again in Juanita Steller and was happily married for five years and embracing two stepdaughters until her sudden death in 2018.
Floyd is such a loving, caring person it’s hard not to like him or even love him, as girlfriend (Elaine See) found out for the past year. She enjoyed life, laughter, faith and pure love for him.
He was a tough cookie, handling cancer like a trooper this past year, doing everything the doctors asked him to do.
Floyd will be missed in so many ways – as a friend, a father, a grandfather and brother and an all around wonderful person, passing out his big “HUGS” and having a listening ear and helpful attitude.
He is survived by his children: Cheryl (Tony) Janeway, Roann; Arlo Cornette, Wabash; Todd (Melissa) Cornett, Warsaw; Richard Cornett, Muncie; Steve Cornett, Wabash; Danny (Linda) Tubbs, Lincoln, Neb.; James (Janice) Tubbs, Lincoln, Neb.; Eugena (Scott) McDonald, Wabash; Laura (Jeff) Walls, Collierville, Tenn; 31 grandchildren; 37 great grandchildren; sisters: Gail Williams, Helen France, Norma Harris, Doris Miller, Nancy Smith.
He was preceded in death by Frankie Harris and Roy Cornett; wives, Myrna R. (Lackey) Cornett and Juanita J. Cornett; 19 siblings.
A memorial services will take place at 6 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 5, at the Walk by Faith Community Church 515 S. Chippewa St, Roann, with Pastor Greg Wilburn officiating. A dinner will take place following the memorial service at the church for friends and family.
