Floyd Milton Lay, Jr. 64, passed away peacefully on Monday Jan 10, 2022 while holding his wife Diana's hand in their home in Owensville Ohio after a courageous battle with cancer.
Floyd was born on November 2, 1957 in Cincinnati OH to Floyd Lay, Sr. and Betty Lay (Nanney).
Floyd Graduated from Clermont Northeastern High school in 1977. He retired from Union roofing in 2012, he was a member of Local 42 Union.

Floyd is survived by his wife of 43 years Diana Lay (Robertson); 3 children, Michelle (Greg) Holden, Jeffrey (Megan) Lay and Amy (Scott) Musselman; 4 grandchildren, Connor and Jordyn Holden, Alayna Musselman, Junior Lay and soon to be born Grandson Rocky Lay; sisters, Pamela (David) Lloyd and Barbara (David) Dawson; brother, Robert (Cindy) Lay and numerous nieces and nephews.

Floyd was a friend to countless people and the source of many laughs and memories.
He enjoyed frequent trips to Gatlinburg TN and Clearwater FL. Even in retirement Floyd still spent much time up on the roof, there are very few roofs in Cincinnati that Floyd hasn't stepped on.
Floyd lived by the motto "Work hard, Play Hard" and did both until the very end.
