Obituary

FLOYD FORREST KROHN
January 13, 1923 to January 31, 2011
"He was a one-of-a-kind man
who will be missed by all who knew and loved him."

Floyd Krohn was born in Camas, WA. He attended grade school and high school in Washougal, WA. He worked at the paper mill, drove bus for the Camas School District and was the transportation supervisor 27 years. He had a farm in Washougal and later moved to Vancouver, WA. He loved airplanes and learned to fly with Wally Olson. Through the years people would recognize him as the bus driver who drove them to school or the pilot and instructor who taught them to fly. He was the owner/operator of Krohn Flying Service for many years. Aside from the family he loved, he was most fond of baseball, especially the Yankees, candy, cookies, maple bars, drum sticks, bacon, biscuits and gravy.
Floyd was a son, husband, father, grandfather,
great-grandfather, good friend and animal lover.
He was preceded in death by his sister, Donna; first wife, Shirley Pawsey; mother, Fern; son, Jode; grandson, David; and second wife of 55 years, Zaida Dunlap Krohn.
He is survived by his son, Steve Krohn and his wife, Claudia Clark Krohn; daughter, Cindy Krohn; daughter-in-law, Beth (Donaugh) Krohn Gilbert; sister-in-law, Dorris Dunlap Long; grandchildren, Denise, Elise; Paul and Sarah; and five great-grandchildren.
Floyd loved dogs. Throughout his life he and Zaida supported the Human Society. This is what the family suggests should anyone want to make a memorial contribution.
At Floyd's request, there will be no service. At some time the family may have a small gathering/celebration of his life.
