Floyd Stovall, a dedicated computer programmer who spent years serving Tarrant County, TX with his expertise and multitude of certifications, passed away on June 10, 2024, in Copperas Cove, Texas. He was a beloved husband, father, son, brother, and friend to many.

Born on January 24, 1946, in Seagoville Texas, Floyd led a life full of love and passion for his work and family. His career as a computer programmer was marked by excellence and dedication. Despite being one class away from completing his bachelor's degree, he excelled in his profession and left a lasting impact on those he worked with. 

Floyd's time outside of work was filled with joyous moments spent with his family. They all cherished moments traveling together around the United States. Solving crossword puzzles with his son Benjamin by his side was one of his favorite past times. Floyd was known for having a broad vocabulary. However, when he encountered a challenging word he would call on Ben and they would master it together. 

In addition to his professional pursuits and family life, Floyd served in the United States Air Force as an Inventory Management Specialist for 4 years. During his deployment to Vietnam from the summer of 1968 to the summer of 1969, he exhibited unwavering dedication to duty and was commended for his exceptional job proficiency. His military service was characterized by adherence to duty and military bearing above reproach.

Outside of work and military service, Floyd had a passion for songwriting and music. He often frequented the local barber shop and Paula Sue's Diner to play music accompanied by his biggest fan, Benjamin. Floyd's dream of making it big in songwriting reflected his ambition and creativity beyond the realms of programming. Bonni was always a huge supporter of Floyd's aspirations. 

Floyd often imparted wisdom through simple yet profound sayings like "If you watch your pennies, your dollars will take care of themselves," showcasing his frugal nature but not at the expense of generosity. His kindness and caring nature made everyone around him feel at ease.

Floyd Stovall is preceded in death by his loving wife Bonni Stovall; son Benjamin Stovall; father P. Fred Stovall; mother Minnie Henry; sister Lavaughn Lewis; brother Vernon Leon Amick Sr.; and in-laws Louis Whiteside and Francis Whiteside. He is also survived by his brother Phillip Stovall.

The world has lost a remarkable individual whose legacy of hard work, kindness, love for family, dedication to duty, and passion for music will forever be remembered.

In honoring Floyd's memory, let us celebrate a life well-lived—a life that touched so many hearts. 

Rest in peace Floyd Stovall (1946-2024). You will be deeply missed but never forgotten.
