Floyd Powell Carmines of Williamsburg passed away on July 21, 2012. Born on March 27, 1919 in Norfolk, Va. to Daniel H. Carmines and Bessie Powell Carmines, Floyd lived briefly in New Orleans before spending his formative years in Roanoke, Va. He served in the U.S. Army Air Force during World War II, and was stationed in England for the duration of the war. After the war, Floyd worked for many years for the National Park Service in Roanoke, and after retirement had a second career in the accounting department of Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond.
He moved to the family cottage in Williamsburg after his second retirement, where he lived for the remainder of his life.
Floyd was an avid collector, especially of American folk art, books, and prints and was a serious student of family genealogy. He shared these passions with his family and many friends.
A generous and loving uncle, he will be missed by his niece, Carolyn Carmines, and nephews, Daniel Carmines, Owen Perkinson and wife, Laura, Steven Carmines, and Bryan Perkinson and wife, Diane. He also leaves behind many great and great-great-nephews and nieces. Floyd will be missed by his many friends, especially Ken and Brenda Mitchell of Williamsburg. He was preceded in death by his sister, Mildred Perkinson, and brothers, Daniel Carmines and Sidney Carmines.
A graveside service and interment will be held at Cedar Grove Cemetery, Williamsburg, on Monday, July 30, 2012 at 11 AM.
