Floyd’s family and loved ones will have a public viewing on Monday, June 8 from 12 noon to 6 p.m. at The Fountain of Praise.

The homegoing celebration for Floyd will be held the following day on Tuesday, also at The Fountain of Praise. It will be a ticketed event with more details forthcoming.

A memorial will be also held in Minneapolis, where Floyd resided when he died, this Thursday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Then on Saturday, a memorial service will be held in North Carolina, where Floyd was born, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
