Gregory "Mooch" Allen Floyd

June 28, 1962 ~ May 20, 2019 (age 56)




The Lord needed an angel at the end of the night on Monday, May 20, 2019 so he called Gregory “Mooch” Allen Floyd home at the young age of 56 years old.   Mooch (as everyone knew him) was born in Palmer, Tennessee, then with his family moved to Kentucky where he was raised.  In 1979, he made his way to making his home in Sequatchie, Tennessee.   In 1982, he married the love of his life, Tammy Alder Floyd. 


During his career, Mooch was employed at A-1 Building and Marion Lumber.  He served many years as an Auxiliary Police Office for the Marion County Sheriff's Department.


Mooch loved any and all music.  He was in a band called “Rebels” where he played the guitar and bass.    He loved and worshipped his family however he was never short of words to giving them advice how to live along with leading their lives.   As his family stated, “in Mooch’s world he was always right” and he never let them go without their “daily chewing”.      Mooch was an inspiration and devoted man to all his family and friends.  He gave with all his heart and soul.


Those who precede him in death are his parents, Walter “Ray” Floyd, Sr. and Maxine Floyd; brother, Walter “Poke” Floyd, Jr.;  nephew, Shane Foshee and father-in-law, Paul Alder.


The loved ones left to cherish his memories are his precious wife of 37 years, Tammy Floyd; son, Colby (Chelsea) Whitzell; granddaughter, Rylee “Rew” Whitzell; grandmother, Dorothy Griffith; sisters, Deb Foshee, Lorri (Bo) Burnett; Robyn (Jeff) Whitzell; nieces, Jade (Kain) McCown, Tonya and Tiffany Foshee; nephews, John Adam Floyd and Drew (Molly) Munsey; sisters-in-laws, Paula (George) Tharp and Kim (Coby) Munsey; mother-in-law, Helen Alder along with several great nieces and nephews.


The family will receive friends on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 from 11:00 am to 8:00 pm CDT and Thursday, May 23, 2019 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm CDT at Tate Funeral Home in Jasper, Tennessee.
