(Powers) Lobsiger. On December 17, 1961, Floyd and Sally A. Garrett were married. She preceded him in death on October 1, 2018. Floyd graduated from Lancaster High School in 1958 where he played basketball, participated in track/field and band. Known for his determination, hard-work and attention-to-detail, Floyd was a true craftsman in auto body repair and restoration. Floyd began full-time employment with his father, Loren, at Loren’s Body Shop in Bluffton in 1959. Floyd became a co-owner with his brother Denny in 1975 and eventually retired in 2005. He enjoyed attending car shows where he won many awards. Floyd and Sally especially enjoyed the Bluffton Street Fair car show and parade with his 1963 Corvette and his 1967 Camaro. Floyd enjoyed many fun times at Adams Lake and multiple fishing trips to Canada with family and friends. He hand crafted his own remote-control airplanes and restored bicycles and pedal cars. He enjoyed riding motorcycles and made several trips to the Smoky Mountains with his son, Kent. In his mid-40’s, Floyd took up distance running and continued to run mini-marathons and 10-Ks into his 60’s. He regularly supported and participated in the Parlor City Trot in Bluffton. Floyd also participated in the Rock Steady Boxing Program where he formed many close friendships. The highlight of his retirement was time spent with granddaughter Anabel. He is survived by his two children, Kent Lobsiger of Nashville, IN and Amy Lobsiger of Ferndale, MI, one granddaughter, Anabel Sicko of Ann Arbor, MI, along with two brothers, Dennis (Wanda) Lobsiger of Bluffton and Michael (Beverly) Lobsiger of Punta Gorda, FL.
