Born into the Army-Air Corps, he traveled all over the country as a child, landing in Paris, Ky., where he met, courted and married Elise Baird Galloway. He entered the Air Force in 1954, continuing the long family tradition of military service, retiring after 30 years in 1984. He was a strategic bomber pilot and commanding officer serving in the 8th Air Force, SAC.
After retiring, he was an icon in the City of Sanctuary for more than 20 years. He served as mayor, treasurer, city administrator and was mayor pro tem at his death. The colonel was a man of conviction and honor. He loved to read and was a student of history. The colonel loved his country, his family, his dogs and his friends. He loved to fly. The colonel was a simple man who enjoyed sharing a glass of wine with friends, eating a good "greasy spoon" meal, quoting poetry, and working on city business with his trusty city secretary at his side.
Megg is indebted to her friends from Tison Middle School and the family of Sanctuary for their support and kindness during this difficult journey.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Elise Baird Galloway; and son, Floyd Emerson Galloway III.
The colonel entrusted his favorite "people" Lucy, Fred, and China to his daughter, Martha (Megg) Galloway-Elliott; he also leaves behind Wayne C. Elliott; his best friend, Gary Dohm and family.
Arrangements are under the directions of White's Azle Funeral Home
