IMAGES OF OUR PAST - FLOYD AND TROY WYNN MEMORIAL - ROCKLEDGE, GEORGIA

Floyd and Troy Wynn, sons of Cannie and Rosa Lee Chafin Wynn, were full of life and promise.  Both served their country in the United States Army.  Troy was a PFC, while Floyd was SP5,  who served in Vietnam.

Troy was riding down Country Club Road in the car of Derrell Holt on July 11, 1968 when the car went out of control, killing Troy and seriously injuring the other people in the car. 

Then the unthinkable happen.  Floyd's parents received the terrible news. On June 2, 1970, almost two years after his brother Troy had been killed, Floyd had been killed in a wreck involving a car and a motorcyle, not too far from their home.

Both Wynn brothers were buried in the cemetery of Blue Springs Baptist Church not far from their home.  But, Cannie and Rosa Lynn Wynn wanted to do more.  They erected a rock enclosed garden in front of their home on Georgia Highway 29 north of Rockledge.  For many Christmas seasons, the Wynn placed an elaborate and beautiful Christmas display to show the unabiding love they had for their two sons, both lost to death in motor vehicle accidents.
