Floyd Merlin Hermes was born March 2, 1952 to Francis and Norma Hermes in Missoula. Floyd was raised in St. Regis, where he graduated from high school. Floyd went home to Heaven to be with his parents, brother Bob and sister, Barbara on Feb. 12, 2022 in Gillette, Wyoming.

Floyd loved the rodeo. He enjoyed being a clown at rodeos throughout Montana and Idaho as well as he loved country dancing and won many contests in his youth. He was a dry-wall professional, he and his friend Shorty headed east to build pole barns where he met his wife, Corinne.

They were joined in marriage April 10, 1992. Floyd worked many years as a truck driver for Campbell County Road and Bridge and most recently XPO Logistics as well as drove a bus for Powder River transporting coal miners to and from work.

Floyd and Corrine rarely missed a rodeo and enjoyed taking road trips throughout the West. They found salvation, Jesus, were born again and baptized together and were members of Family Life Church in Gillette.

Corinne's boys Mike and Mark could always make him laugh and enjoyed spending time with him. Floyd enjoyed watching Westerns on TV. He will be greatly missed.

He is survived by his wife, Corrine; brother, Jim (Terri) and John (Audrey) and sister-in-law Gloria Hermes along with many nieces and nephews.

A memorial will be held at St. Regis Cemetary June 25, 11 a.m. We will gather after at the St. Regis Senior center to share a meal.
