Memorial service for Floyd Eugene Shackelford will be 11:00 am Wednesday, March 4, 2020, at Inola Funeral Home Chapel. Floyd passed from this life at Hillcrest Hospital in Tulsa on Sunday, March 1, 2020. He was 70 years old.
The son of Floyd Lowell Shackelford and Lydia Lucendy (King) Shackelford was born July 13, 1949 in Chickasha, Oklahoma. He grew up and attended school in Carnegie, Oklahoma, graduating with the class of 1969. On main street in Carnegie, he met the love of his life, Dollie Ann Walker. They married on June 7, 1970. Floyd worked for a short time at Ft. Cobb, then moved with Dollie to Oklahoma City, where he worked for Caterpillar for twenty years. His health forced him to retire in 2006. In 2012, Floyd and Dollie purchased property in Inola, to be closer to their daughter. In 2017, they made Inola their home.
There were many activities that Floyd enjoyed in his spare time. He loved working on his John Deere tractor and tinkering in his barn. He was also a talented woodworker, and a great jokester. By far, his family was his greatest love.
Floyd was preceded in death by his parents, Floyd and Lydia Shackelford, and sisters Irene Anthony and Joann Rocky.
Those left to mourn his passing are his wife Dollie; daughter Genetta Hutton; grandchildren Kryste Turley, Heather Turley, and Zachary Hutton, and sisters Flora Scott, Louise Taylor, and Deloris Warner.
