Floyd was born on September 12, 1929 to Hugh and Nellie (Olson) Parks in Butler, S.D., the third of four children. He grew up on the family farm near Butler and was a member of the last class to graduate from Butler High School. Upon graduation he went into partnership with his parents on the farm. He served in the United States Army from 1952 to 1954 and was stationed at Fort Knox, Kentucky. After his military service he returned to the farm where he raised cattle and small grain until retiring in the early 1990’s and moving into Webster. Although he leased out the land, he continued daily drives to the farm to check the crops and always knew what the going price of wheat was. Floyd was a member of the Bristol United Methodist Church. He enjoyed traveling and visited several states including Hawaii and also took trips abroad to Norway and England where he was able to meet distant relatives. He enjoyed sports, especially softball and baseball. He celebrated his 80th birthday with a trip to Minneapolis for a Minnesota Twins’ game. Family was very important to Floyd and he kept in close contact with his nieces and nephews and took great pride in their accomplishments and those of their children. He is survived by two nephews, Roger (Beverly) Parks of Clitherall, MN; Ken (Barbara) Buhler of Pierre SD; three nieces, Janet Parks of Eden Prairie, MN, Clarice Buhler of Milbank, SD, Lenel (Don) Wolf of Brooklyn Park, MN; and five great nieces. He was preceded in death by his parents, his brother Dale, and his sisters Ethel and Marjorie.

Our sympathy to all of your family. Floyd was a special friend and cousin to all of us in Minnesota. Especially my grandmother Myrtle (Parks) Beattie, (Floyd's Aunt) who was very fond and proud of all the Parks children. Mark Beattie
