  • Godbless the Henschen family. Floyd taught me everything I know about Water Treatment and Ion Exchange during 100-N Reactor operations with UNC & Westinghouse. I waved and beeped at him as he ran the Richland streets around my Parents house and the neiborhood for years after throwin in the towell at N and enjoying his retirement. I can remember that old little super ball they used inside golf balls he would bounce and teach us young power operators if you asked him. I started there in 1980 and asked him then about that little rubber ball and he had it for ever out here, I asked him when he retires….if I could have it and carry on the tradition. It was taped to my locker several years later when Floyed said goodbye. I love Floyed Henschen for who he Is and I’ll give him his ball back when I see him again! I am so sorry of the great loss to your family…. But what a great gain in Heaven! SJG…

  • I was always happy to see you at dances and social functions. We had fun talks shared jokes and danced. Floyd was a helping angel for many square and round dancers. He touched many lives. I will miss him.

  • Floyd was a kind man with a quick smile and a twinkle in his eye. He was always ready to dance when the music started playing and will be greatly missed in the square dance world. He was much loved and I thank you for giving us a chance to take part in his memorial. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Henschen family.

  • I will always know Floyd Henschen as my Uncle Gary. He will remain high on my list of favorite people. His smile and gentle manner, loyalty, integrity, work ethic, and love of life could be examples for us all making our way through this life. I liked playing cards with him especially when he was winning. The twinkle in his eye and giggles over loser’s groans could make you forget that you were one of those losers. His passing is a loss and we share in your sorrow. Susan

  • Floyd was a quiet man, but he was always ready to help. At square and round dances he kept us in his favorite coconut cookies. After the dance he wwould always help clean up and empty the trash. He was always ready to ance with anyone who needed a partner. At the first pancake breakfast he attended, he left right after. I teased him later and said he should have stayed to dance. He wasn’t sure he could dance and I told him just to move his feet-the women would just love to get up and dance. Later on he did, as well as attend a few of the Pasco Senior dances. We won’t forget him for a long time and hope his family will realize he was important to square and round dancing.

  • I knew Floyd as “Henschy” back at 100N. First man I ever saw eat roast beef in a hot dog bun, crammed with lettuce. He hated bologna, he thought it was over-priced and roast beef was alway cheaper and better for you. He knew the Demin/Filter Plant like the back of his hand. Always tinkering with some valve that was slow to react. Great guy, never lost his cool, even after he retired. A great loss, my thoughts and prayers to his family.

  • A special thank you to Floyd’s family for sharing him with our square dance family. We too will miss him greatly, especially his big smile. He always had a kind word to give as he walked out onto the dance floor. The square dancers in heaven have just gained a wonderful new member! Blessings on the entire Henschen family.

  • We are very honored to have known Floyd. Our association with him was through the square dance clubs where he has been such an inspiration, always active, always with a smile, never complaining. Floyd was very loved and he will be sorely missed. God bless the Henschen family in their time of sorrow. I’m sure Floyd will be dancing and running in heaven!

  • God Bless Floyd’s family. He was a good man, always with a smile. He loved to square dance and run. He was always ready to dance with any lady who needed a partner. We really loved him. Floyd also loved running and won most all Sage Brush Game races in his class for several years. We will miss Floyd greatly. He contributed much to the field of Square Dancing.
