Floyd Sr. lost his father at the age of 10 and years after the family moved to the Killeen area, Syble married Von E. Ratcliff. Floyd Sr. attended Belton Junior High School, Copperas Cove High School and graduated from Killeen High School where he met the love of his life Barbara Gene Bay.

Floyd Sr. served in the United States Army for 2 years, married Barbara, and then served in the United States Air Force for 4 years. During that time they gave birth to Vickie Lynn Rucks on May 16, 1964, in Clovis, New Mexico. After Floyd Sr.’s time in the military was over they moved back to the Killeen area and gave birth to their second child, Floyd Desmond Rucks Jr. on January 20, 1972 in Temple, Texas.

Floyd Sr. retired from Kmart Distribution after 35 years of service and the Corsicana facility was closed. With his time at Kmart, he held various management positions and was a very devoted employee to his company and peers. His passion for life was his family, friends, his Kmart work family, his dog Shiney, country music, baseball, western movies, and the Dallas Cowboys.
