Mapp; step-daughter Pauline Floyd; step-sons, Johnnie Bolden, Willie Floyd Sr., and James Floyd; step-grandson, Willie �Cannonball� Floyd Jr. He leaves to cherish many fond memories to his sister, Milria Etria James of New Orleans, LA; daughters, Irma (Bernard) Andrews of Gulfport, MS and Gwen Alexander of Gulfport, MS; step-sons, Calvin (Betty) Floyd of Gainesville, FL, and Thomas Floyd Jr. of Englewood, CA; and a host of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and other relatives and friends.
