RWB Floyd was born October 13, 1965, is a Southeast Missouri native and graduated from Delta High School as Valedictorian in 1984. He served as State 1st Vice-President in FFA, so travel, instruction and motivation are no strangers to him! He was listed in Who’s Who Among American High School Students, the Society of Distinguished American High School Students and was selected as a Westlake and Curator’s Scholar.
RWB Floyd attended the University of Missouri-Rolla and majored in Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering. After transferring to Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau, the path changed to Agricultural Engineering and Biochemistry with a minor in Math.
Broadcasting became the surprise career choice for RWB Floyd, beginning as a disc jockey at KJEZ95 in Poplar Bluff. He made the move to KJAQ/KJAS radio as the afternoon-drive DJ, and began commercial voice-work with KFVS12 television, the CBS affiliate, in Cape Girardeau. That evolved into a full-time position where he has worked as an award-winning commercial producer since 1987. Robert also owns his own company, FasTrax Pro, which produces videos and voice-work throughout the country. Robert has worked on national cooking shows and hosted many radio, television and internet programs and events.
RWB Floyd’s Masonic career began in 2004, and his love of ritual work propelled him to follow his father, Charles, through the chairs in Whitewater Lodge #417 and Trowel Lodge #440. Robert gave his first Charge in 2006 and was hooked! Robert’s inspiration to learn the Lectures of the Degrees came from the late Claude Estes at Whitewater, who gave him his EA Lecture at 89 years of age.
Robert is a member of the Capaha Scottish Rite Club, Scottish Rite- Valley of St. Louis- Orient of Missouri, Wilson Chapter #75 of Royal Arch Masons, Cape Council #20 of Cryptic Masons, Cape Commandery #55 of the Knights Templar, Whitewater Order of Eastern Star #174 and the Missouri Lodge of Research.

RWB Floyd was the WM/Obligator and Lecturer in the MM Degree at the Grand Master’s C2A Class in Columbia in 2011. Ask any Lodge in the 38th District and you’ll discover that Robert is a hands-on, full-fledged ritualist in Freemasonry and truly loves to work with new, and seasoned, Freemasons!
