More detail on this person: I am sad to announce the passing of Wamon Floyd on the second of July 2010. He had lived with a kidney transplant for several years which finally failed and required his return to dialysis for several months. He entered into the hospital in Tacoma Washington and was found to be riddled with cancer. He died two days after exploratory surgery. Wamon graduated with class 64-2W from flight school and served with I Corps Aviation Company 7th Platoon Fangs in 64-65 in 1971-72 he served with A/101 AVN101 ABN 60AHC. He retired in the early 1990s as CW4 after 30 years of service.

As a flight school classmate of his and a fellow Fang I can attest to his uplifting spirit, sense of humor and devotion to duty and country. He was loved and respected by all who served with him and appreciated for his calm demeanor under fire. Wamon is survived by his wife Vien, his four sons John, James, Joe, and Jason, and three granddaughters, Hadley, Poppy, and Tenley Floyd.
