Floyd James Dennis
1954 - 2017
Floyd James Dennis, born May 15 1954, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on July 22, 2017 at Sarah House, after a long and courageous battle with cancer.
Floyd served in the Navy from 1977 to 1980 and visited many countries. He was an avid sports fan and a diehard Jacksonville Jaguars fan. Although he accepted the brunt of many jokes, he remained a true fan to his team of choice. Floyd was a well-liked dedicated employee at Chubb Sovereign Life and then at Sansum Clinic. He was honored as Employee of the Quarter at both locations, a testimony to his hard work and his constant pleasant and friendly demeanor.
Floyd is survived by daughters, Toi Dennis and Niki Johnson (Michael), step-children, Pria Thompson Hoover, Amber Fleming (Devern), Nicole Koger, Bryant Koger (Amanda), grandchildren, Shai, Chico, Ajha, Essence, Serenity, Asaun and Khaliah, sisters, Bridgette Dennis, Desiree Mordecai, Renee Dennis, Katina Watson Peacock, Tracey Watson, brothers Niki Tarver and Gary Watson, and step-father, Willie Tarver. Floyd has many nieces, nephews, cousins, uncles, aunts and friends from all over who love and miss him very much. He is also survived by Diana Cramblit, companion of many years and Colleen Dennis, his lifelong friend.
Anyone wishing to make a donation in his honor is encouraged to support the Sarah House, the amazing hospice house that took care of Floyd in his final days or Santa Barbara High School Foundation for a memorial plaque to be included in the new stadium seating.
A Celebration of Life BBQ for Floyd will be held on September 16, 2017 at Oak Park (Sycamore Picnic Area) 1:00 – 6:00 p.m. We ask that everyone bring a side dish to share and their beverage of choice.
