Floyd James Plautz was born in River Falls, WI on April 2, 1931, a son of Stephen and Alice (Robey) Plautz. He was raised and received his education in Willard, and graduated from Greenwood High School in 1949. After completing high school, Floyd moved to Milwaukee and worked at Allis Chalmers. In 1951, he was drafted into the U.S. Army, and returned to Willard after his discharge, and worked for Plautz Brothers Construction. Floyd was united in marriage to Virginia R. Niehaus on November 27, 1954 at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Marshfield. In 1980, he started Plautz-Pekol & Haas Construction, which he owned until selling out and retiring in 2001. After retirement, he enjoyed spending time at home with his family and wintering in Florida.
He was a member of St. Mary Catholic Church and its Holy Name Society, the Greenwood American Legion Post #238, the Knights of Columbus Our Lady of Fatima Council #4963, and formerly served on the board of the Greenwood Credit Union.
Floyd had many interests, but especially loved planting trees, mowing lawn, and driving just about anything.
He will be dearly missed by his wife, Virginia, of Greenwood; four daughters: Sue Eller of Alpharetta, GA, Cindy (Perry) Oestreich of Greenwood, Sharon (Sam) Street of Greenwood, Carol Plautz of Greenwood; two sons: Scott Plautz and Paul (Julie) Plautz, both of Greenwood; five grandchildren: Jordan and Samantha Street, Lexi Oestreich, Marissa and Mitchell Plautz; one brother: Paul (Rosalie) Plautz of Hales Corners, WI; many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents; two brothers: Robert and Philip Plautz; and two sons: Alan and Donald Plautz.
