Michael grew up with his cousins, Lanette Stinnett and David Stinnett, children of Dora Margaret (Floyd) Stinnett and Donald Franklin Stinnett (both deceased) of Chidester , Arkansas. Michael played football in high school for the Go-Devils and was given the nickname "Pinky" for his love of Pink Floyd. Michael graduated from Gurdon High School and joined the Army. While stationed in Germany, Michael met and married his wife, Susanne Hinrichs of Stadt Osterholz-Schambeck, Niederachsen, Germany, and they had a son, Daniel Wayne Floyd. Michael moved his family to the States and finished his service in Colorado. Michael then moved his family to Hanson, Massachusetts. Michael went to work for PA Landers where he was a mechanic and drove a gas truck for many years before getting laid off.

Michael spent a few years in Boonville, MO with his sister, Carolyn Nutt Jackson and her girls Savannah Leigh Knoblauch, Jacqueline Carol Trujillo and Chandra Marie Jackson, and worked for the Isle of Capri Casino. Michael went back to Arkansas and went to work for Woodfield, Inc out of Camden, Arkansas doing what he loved to do which was drive a truck. Michael also loved to ride motorcycles, being outdoors, smoking a stogy and drinking Dr. Pepper. He enjoyed being with family and friends and was a very loving and caring man that protected and took care of those he loved beyond measure. He was stubborn to a fault and got great humor out of being that way.

Michael is also preceded in death by grandmother Zella Mae (Rogers) Floyd of Gurdon, Arkansas and Grandfather James (Peelegs) Hershal Floyd of Prescott, Arkansas. Michael will be missed by many.
