Following the death of his father in 1912, he continued to make his home with his mother until his marriage to Gay Doman in 1920. To this union two children were born, LaVerne and Russell. His wife Gay died in 1965.

In 1968, he married Ruby Nelson. Floyd farmed and ranched south of Lusk most of his life. In 1975 they sold their ranch and moved to Torrington because of his declining health. Mr. Simon died at the Community Hospital in Torrington Nov. 23, 1983.
