Floyd Edward "Arkie" Bagwell

M, b. 27 October 1935, d. 19 April 2010
     Floyd Edward "Arkie" Bagwell was born on 27 October 1935 in Mississippi County, Arkansas. He was the son of Emmett Gilmore Bagwell and Ruby Inez Chism. Floyd Edward "Arkie" Bagwell married Sue Barger on 22 December 1954. Floyd Edward "Arkie" Bagwell married Ida Mae Reed on 13 January 1962. Floyd Edward "Arkie" Bagwell died on 19 April 2010 at age 74 Floyd E. "Arkie" Bagwell, age 74, of Tekonsha, was stricken unexpectedly while mowing his lawn at home on Monday, April 19, 2010.

Floyd was born at home in Mississippi County, Arkansas on Saturday,October 27, 1935 to Emmett Gilmore and Ruby Inez (Chism) Bagwell. He attended Keiser, Arkansas schools where he excelled as an athelete. He was a member of the All State Football Team and was a champion Golden Gloves boxer.

Arkie was a determined young man and left home the first time at the age of 14 to go to Peoria, Illinois where he fudged his age and got a job at Caterpillar. A following summer he went to Indiana and picked tomatoes. At the age of 16 he left home to move to Marshall to live with family and got a job at Crowell Carton. His Grandmother Chism helped him manage his earnings and he saved enough to buy a car. Floyd drove back home to tell his family about the jobs available in Michigan and urged them to follow him back. That they did.

He was a familiar face at Don Moor's Farm Fresh Meat in Clarendon Township. He was the Foreman in the Slaughterhouse there for 26 years. After that he took a job with Permabilt Homes in Marshall where he worked for 15 years until his retirement in 1996. After his official retirement Floyd worked with Al Beglin doing carpentry work.

Floyd was married to Sue Barger on Dec. 22, 1954. She preceded him in death May 29, 1960. He was married to Ida Mae Reed on Jan. 13, 1962. She also preceded him in death April 28, 1985.

Floyd and Gayle Irish became partners in life together until she preceded him in death on May 20, 2005.

Floyd enjoyed what one may refer to as an"energetic discussion" with others! He very much was a supporter of the Green Movement and was a believer in Solar and Wind Energy. He enjoyed the fruits of his garden he maintained every year. Fishing with his friend Bob Lawrence was a favorite pastime as was spear fishing. He had enjoyed a bear hunting trip to Alaska .

He lived in Clarendon Township for the majority of his life where he enjoyed taking care of his property.

He was an inventor and tinkerer. An example was when he turned a new rotor tillar into a lawn mower by swapping the engine to a mower frame and mounting a bus seat on it so he could be sure to take 2 grandchildren with him down to the St. Joe River. A "Floyd modified" steel hulled Tug Boat/House Boat was a familiar sight on Stuart Lake where he and Gayle would enjoy a summer afternoon. It was unique so it was definitely memorable especially when he launched his pick up truck with the boat one day and the boat won the battle over who weighed more!

Most of all Floyd loved his family and all the time he could spend with them.

Surviving are his children Vickie (Jim) Grogan of White Lake, Brenda Lawrence of West Lafayette, IN, Patsy (John) Malicki of Waterford, and Carl (Tamra) Bagwell of Tekonsha; 8 grandchildren, Raymond, Amanda, Sean, Brad, Kendra, Suzanne, Reid, and John, and 4 great-grandchildren Kelsey, Karleigh, Jared and Aidia; his siblings Shirley (Jim) McKay of Memphis,TN, Bobby (Marie) Bagwell of East Leroy, and Peggy Schell of Texas; nieces and nephews. He was also preceded in death by his parents and a brother T. Douglas Bagwell.
