Floyd Joseph Hitchcock, 86, passed away peacefully at St. Peter’s Hospice Inn in Albany on March 10, 2022, after a brief illness. He faced his transition with the same fierce independence and pride that he displayed throughout his life. Floyd was a devoted husband for 62 years to the love of his life Jane Wood who predeceased him two years ago. He was a lifelong resident of the Capital District, graduating from APHS in 1954, subsequently enlisting in the U.S. Army to serve his country.
