'He'll change the world': George Floyd's family pays emotional tribute as crowds flock to funeral George Floyd’s life was celebrated at his funeral on Tuesday, with eulogies that honored him as a father, brother, athlete and mentor whose death sparked a global reckoning over police brutality and racial prejudice. Crowds descended on a church in Houston, Texas, after Floyd’s body was returned to his childhood hometown to be laid to rest in a cemetery in suburban Pearland next to his mother, whom he called out for as he lay dying with a police officer’s knee on his neck in May. “Third Ward, Cuney Homes, that’s where he was born at,” Floyd’s brother Rodney told mourners at the Fountain of Praise church, on the sixth day of mourning for Floyd in three cities. “But everybody is going to remember him around the world. He is going to change the world.”
