FEZ TEMPLE #231, A. E. A. O. N. M. S., Inc. - OASIS OF DOVER, DESERT OF DELAWARE


In Memoriam
 
Steven Romell Floyd was born in Lewes, Delaware to Sharon Floyd and Steven Harmon.  He was raised in Millsboro, Delaware and attended Sussex Central High School.
 
Upon graduation he joined the US Army where he rose to the rank of Sgt 1 Class.  At the end of  his military career Steven moved his family back home to Delaware.  For the past 16 years he was employed by the State of Delaware as a Corrections Officer and for his entire career he worked at the James T. Vaugh Correctional Center in Smyrna, Delaware.  During his time there he received many accolades to include the most recent “Warden’s Award for Outstanding Performance”.  He rose to the rank of Sergeant and upon his demise he was hailed as a hero for his unselfish actions during the prison riot in which he lost his life and was posthumously promoted to the rank of Lieutenant.
 
Steven dedicated his life to his family, his career, and to his community.  In 1995 he joined the Prince Hall Masonic family through Temple Lodge #8 in Milford, Delaware where he served as Worshipful Master for 5 years.  From there he went on to further his dedication and commitment to the craft by becoming a member of Rock of Ages Chapter #15 (OES), G. Oscar Carrington Consistory #93 (AASR NJ), Mt Moriah Chapter #5 (HRAM), Suakim Temple #60 (AEAONMS) William H. Barrett Council #28 (R&SM) (NY) where he served as Deputy Master and Antioch Commandery #7 (KT) (VA).  In 2007 he became a charter member of FEZ Temple # 231 (AEAONMS) in Dover, Delaware and in 2011 he was elected to serve as Illustrious Potentate. PP Floyd also proudly served his temple & desert as temple Membership and Group Supervision Director, Assistant Director of NDI, President of the Past Potentate’s Council and Imperial Advisor Of The Desert.  And because of his reputation as a sharp dresser he was affectionately recognized as the temple’s wardrobe director.
 
Through these organizations, Steven provided both outreach and uplift to his community.  His dedication and commitment made him an advocate for the kind of change most people just talk about.   His most recent accomplishment was to engage, FEZ Temple’s Past Potentate Council with the Vietnam Veterans Commemoration effort that is currently sponsored by the US Congress.  The Past Potentate Council hosted approximately 125 of the area’s Vietnam Vets to a beautiful “recognition” And “pinning ceremony” and all were treated to lunch afterward.
 
In life Steven enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, traveling, and having a good laugh. He
loved his family and adored his two grandsons.  Many will remember Steven R Floyd, Sr.  for his smile and encouraging nature.
 
Steven leaves his beloved wife of 28 years, PC Saundra Floyd, Fez Court #211; his daughter Candyss
Floyd-White and her husband (Tyree); his son Steven Jr;  His daughter Chyvante’,  and two young
grandsons Bryson Maurice and Caison Josiah.  He is also survived by his parents, his grandmother

Gladys Wise, his sister Sharon Davis and husband Robert, and Shavaughn Felder and husband Leondra.
