Floyd was born on January 30, 1933 in Gull Lake, SK. He attended school at White Craig School for nine years and then went to school in the Hamlet of Verlo until 1952. Floyd then worked on the oil rigs and worked part time for his brother-in-law Emil Schlenker at the Texaco Garage in Medicine Hat, AB. In 1955 Floyd married Darlene Jensen in Gull Lake, SK. They then started mixed farming and have resided on the farm ever since. The Steele farm has been in the family for over 100 years. Floyd played softball for the Verlo team. He loved to travel, was a member of the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool, a member of the Gull Lake Elks and a member of the Eagles in Swift Current. Floyd enjoyed going to auction sales where he could visit with people from all over the country, making life long friends. Floyd and Darlene loved to have company. Their door was always open. If someone happened to stop in at meal time Floyd's favorite saying to Darlene was "Just add more water to the soup"! You always knew that you would get fed and the coffee pot was always on! Floyd's knowledge about family history and history of the area will truly be missed by all. He always had a story to tell if you were driving around the country side. He will be sadly missed by many people.
