Floyd Ehret, 76, of Plevna passed away April 16, 2022 at his home.
Floyd was born on July 7, 1945 to William “Bill” and Bertha (Hoffman) Ehret in Baker, Mt. Floyd was the oldest and raised with his siblings on the Ehret family farm south of Plevna. Floyd attended grade school 1st thru 5th at Prairie Park country school south of Plevna. He then attended 6th thru 8th grade in Plevna and graduated from Plevna High School. After graduation Floyd joined the Army National Guard and served for six years. On May 23, 1969 Floyd married the love of his life Janice Ruff in the church he grew up in. The two would continue to be faithful and active members of the Emanuel Evangelical Free Church. They moved out to the Ehret farmstead and raised their two sons Jeremey and Chad. Then in 2002 moved to Janice’s family farm where they have lived since. Floyd put countless hours of work into remodeling this home so it could be a place to gather for their growing family.
Floyd’s first love was farming and ranching. This lifestyle he continued while doing many jobs off the farm. Throughout the years, he worked at the Fertilizer Plant, K & P Construction, Upland Maintenance and for the last six years was the Fallon County Fair Grounds Supervisor.
Floyd wore many hats but his dedication to the church was apparent. He was a deacon, chairman and member of the men’s quartet at the Emanuel Evangelical Free Church over the years. Floyd had many hobbies and activities he enjoyed and if they didn’t keep him busy he was known to “putz” around until he found something to do. He was a pro at DYI (do it yourself) projects and could build or repair just about anything. Floyd enjoyed woodworking, hunting and target practice. He and Janice made it a point to take a trip each year with their family.
Floyd will be missed greatly by his wife, Janice; sons, Jeremey (Ann), Chad (Lana); grandchildren, Ashley (Jeff), Austin (Lexi), Maggie (Caleb), Danica (Adam), Eryn, William (Shanea), Jacob (Janae), Evan; 4 great grandchildren and 2 on the way; brother-in-laws & sister-in-laws; numerous nieces and nephews.
Floyd was preceded in death by his parents, Bill and Bertha; sister Barbara Knapp; brother, Kent Ehret.
