April 19, 1924 — Nov. 21, 2013
Floyd A. Triplett of Milton-Freewater passed away on Nov. 21, 2013, at his home at the age of 89 years. Floyd was born and raised in Elk River, Idaho, and graduated from high school in Clarkston, Wash.
Floyd served honorably in the U.S. Coast Guard during World War II as a medic. After discharge, he graduated from Washington State University with his pharmacy degree. He met the love of his life, Margaret; they married, and together they moved to Milton-Freewater to begin his long career as a business owner, pharmacist and supporter of his community. The two enjoyed many years of travel and adventure in their motor home after retirement. Floyd truly loved spending time with his family. He also enjoyed music, reading, flying small airplanes, golf, traveling to the Oregon Coast, gardening and working in his yard.
Floyd is survived by Margaret; children, Patt and Bob; six grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; brothers, Bob and Dennis; nieces and nephews; many neighbors and friends and his church family.
The St. James Episcopal Church held a lovely service on Sunday, Nov. 23, 2013, and the family will gather together this summer for a celebration-of-life at one of Floyd’s favorite places, the Oregon Coast.
Remembrances of Floyd can be honored to the Walla Walla Community Hospice, St. James Episcopal Church, or charity of choice in care of the Munselle-Rhodes Funeral Home, 902 S. Main, Milton-Freewater, OR 97862.
