Editorial: Remembering Floyd

Published 7:31 am Wednesday, February 29, 2012

Floyd Wombold will be missed. Sadly, he died Saturday after a fall. A member of the Albert Lea Golden K I Kiwanis Club, he had lived in Albert Lea since 1977 and was the subject of a Tribune profile in 2010 because of his impressive model car collection.

To honor him, we thought we would reprint this photo of him from our files:
