William Floyd Utley age 77, born June 4, 1938 was welcomed into the loving arms of Christ our Savior on July 16, 2015. Floyd grew up in the Methodist Home for Children after his mother died at age six and his father died a year later when Floyd was only seven years old. Floyd leaves behind the wife that he loved dearly, Julia Dunlap Utley. He also leaves behind a son Jason Utley, daughter Kelley Utley Whittington and her husband Glen, and daughter Susan Utley Temple and her husband Scott. Floyd leaves behind a fantastic legacy to his seven grandchildren as well. He is also survived by his beloved sister Mildred Utley Riley and her loving family, along with a nephew and countless other lifelong friends that he was thankful for. He is preceded in death by two brothers, Lewis and Clyde Utley. He was rewarded with Heaven and he leaves us behind only for now...for we will see him again. Pain no more daddy.
A graveside service will be held Sunday July 19, 2015 at 2:00 PM at the Clinton Cemetery with Rev. Henry Riley & Dr. Ray Ammons officiating.
The family will receive friends Saturday night from 6:00 til 8:00 PM at Royal-Hall Funeral Home and other times at his home.
