Floyd Macon

November 14, 1932 - December 13, 2022

Floyd Clenton Macon, 90, of Nederland, died Tuesday, December 13, 2022. He was born November 14, 1932, in Ganado, Texas, to Willie and Betty Macon.

Floyd was the youngest of four sons. He began working at Sears & Roebuck at the age of 16. He attended Lee College and in 1953 he was drafted into the military.

Floyd served our county in the United States Army’s 246th field artillery battalion. He returned home in 1955 and in 1957 he married Juanita, his wife of sixty-five years. They moved to Nederland in 1960 and had two sons, Mitchell and Greg. Floyd was transferred to the Sears & Roebuck in Port Arthur, where he worked for a while before going to work for Sabine Towing and Transportation, where he retired after twenty-eight years of service.

Floyd was a loyal servant of First United Methodist Church, Nederland where he enjoyed playing dominos and cards with a group who call themselves, “The Golden Friends”. He also enjoyed working the church’s potato booth for the Nederland Heritage Festival.

Floyd and Juanita enjoyed traveling in their motorhome and square dancing with their Allemanders group. He loved woodworking and hunting with his friends.

Floyd would regularly exercise at Exygon in Nederland. We think he mostly drank coffee and visited with friends. He had a great sense of humor. He loved to agitate people, especially telemarketers that called to solicit. They would hang up regretting they had ever called him.

Floyd was a great father whom both his sons could rely on for help and advice. He was there to lend a helping hand with a home project or auto repairs. He excelled at being a grandpa. His grandkids enjoyed sitting around the table and hearing the stories that built his character. He never missed any of their events and did everything he could to be at any sports game or recital.

Floyd was a kind and beautiful soul that everyone loved and admired. He brought a lot of positivity to the world and will be missed by all.

Survivors include his wife, Juanita; sons, Mitchell and wife, Angie and Greg and wife, Sharon; grandchildren, Hannah and husband, Adam Zahradnik; Callie and husband, Trevor Trevino; Trevor Macon; Slater Macon; and Zach Macon; and great-grandchildren, Micah, Ava, and Nolan Zahradnik and Charlee Trevino.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Willie and Betty Macon; brothers, Wesley from Baytown; Alton from Baytown; and Willie “Cooter” of Victoria.

The family would like to extend their sincerest gratitude to all the caregivers, family, friends, neighbors, first responders, and all the many others who cared for Floyd during his time of need.

A gathering of Mr. Macon’s family and friends will be 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m., Sunday, December 18, 2022, at Broussard’s, 505 North 12th Street, Nederland. His funeral service will be Monday, December 19, 2022, at 10:00 a.m., with his interment to follow at Oak Bluff Memorial Park, Port Neches.
