Floyd LeRoy Moyer passed away Sept. 24, 2020, at home with his family by his side. Floyd was born June 24, 1941, in Emmett, Idaho, to Earl and Helen Moyer.
Floyd grew up in Emmett. He served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1957 to 1964. After the Marine Corps he started his 25-year career in law enforcement. His path started at the Ada County Sheriff's department, going to Whitman County, Washington. He then moved on to Bannock County, Idaho for 11 years. He finished his remaining years in law enforcement, serving his last eight years as police chief in Payette, Idaho. He then went on to serve a 4-year term as mayor of Payette.
In 1994 Floyd and his family moved to Hayden, Idaho. This is where he worked for Post Falls High School handling in-house detention; of all the positions he had, this was his favorite- working with “his kids.”
Floyd married Lois Hanson in 1960. That marriage ended in divorce.
He married Mary “Linda” Canning in 1971. Floyd is survived by his wife, Linda; his children, Chance Moyer, Chris Leonard and wife, Sandy, Stacy Hammond and her husband, Chad, and Brian Moyer; six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren; sisters, Doris Newel and her husband, Manny and Donna Denney and husband, Lawrence; brother, Roger Moyer and wife, Stacey, and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents and a sister, Elaine Howard.
Floyd loved life — from fishing in Alaska with his friend Denny, cutting wood, going to yard sales and telling stories. He was a very dedicated Grandpa, going to and supporting his grandchildren in every sport and activity they did. His grandchildren brought him an immense amount of pleasure and pride. His true love and passion in life was always family.
