Floyd Vivian Sundquist, loving husband, father, and grandfather, returned with honor to the arms of his Heavenly Father, and his beautiful wife, Nyla, on June 29, 2020 after a painful battle with cancer.

He was born to Lloyd Walter and Vernessa Edna DeGraw Sundquist on Oct 20, 1930 in Provo, Utah.

Floyd graduated from Lincoln High school in 1949. He then moved to Grand Junction, Colorado working for the Rio Grand railroad. Floyd joined the Army, and proudly served our country with his twin brother Lloyd on July 12, 1951, as a wheel vehicle mechanic. After their training in California, both were stationed in Okinawa, Japan. He always had great stories to tell about his adventures overseas and his love for our country.

Shortly after returning from Japan, Floyd met the love of his life, Nyla Mae Cragun. They were married on August 11, 1952. They enjoyed life together in the outdoors, four wheeling, camping and fishing. They loved tending to their garden and their fruit trees. Even after Nyla passed away, Floyd was always sharing his harvest and giving as much as he could to others. He had a huge heart, and was notorious for sneaking fruit into your car while you were visiting, which was always well appreciated. He loved having his grandkids, and great grandkids over on hot summer evenings to play in the irrigation, Pinochle, and help pick fruit from his trees. He always had a smile on his face as he watched them make memories.

Floyd worked for Wonder Bread for 31 years as a mechanic. He loved his job, and spoiling his grandkids with every Hostess item you could imagine. Halloween was always especially fun, the grandkids and great grandkids loved to dress up and go trick or treating at Grandpas. Grandpa would keep stuffing everyone’s buckets until they were completely full, while the adults would play cards. He was very social and loved to go to café's where he had many lifelong friends and tease the waitresses. He was an amazing mechanic and loved to repair family and friends' vehicles, When he retired, he spent a large amount of time fixing up classic old cars. Grandpa was always evolving and progressing throughout his life, and was not afraid to change his ideas and learn from others. Everyone who knew Floyd will miss how he never missed the opportunity to teach someone something, how he welcomed you with open arms and loved you completely, his contagious smile, and his “Whomp Whomps”.

He is survived by his son Guy Sundquist, daughter Terry (Dave Atkinson) Bird, brother Lloyd (Barbara) Sundquist, sisters Emma (Jack) Brown, Christina Majers, Karen (Julian) Martinez. 8 grandchildren, 21 great grandchildren, and 1 great granddaughter. He was preceded in death by his wife Nyla Mae Sundquist, sons Darrel, Doyle, and Kim, as well as two grandsons.
