Romulus attended Frenchtown High School and was employed at the Hampton Public School in Hampton, NJ as a building and maintenance engineer for over 30 years, retiring in 1992. He was well known and liked at the school by the children whom he called "Charlie Brown" when he forgot a name. The kids, in return, called out to him, "Hi Snoop!" Prior to that, he worked as a building and maintenance engineer at Delaware Valley Regional High School. Romulus was an active member of the Stanton Grange, the Hampton Fire Co., and was an exempt fireman with the NJ State Fireman's Association. For many years, he and his late wife enjoyed square dancing with their friends at the Danny Tebo Square Dancing Club. He was also a member of the Patriotic Order Son's of America and the Alexandria First Presbyterian Church of Mt. Pleasant. Romulus enjoyed woodworking, crafting, camping, and traveling. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and great-great-grandfather, who will be missed by his family and friends.

Romulus is survived by his three daughters Christine H. Fleming-Wenzel, Flora Christensen, and Sandra Galegonya, his son Floyd A. Fleming, Sr., his fifteen grandchildren, great-grandchildren, his great-great-grandchild, his two foster children, and many nieces and nephews. In addition to his beloved wife, he is predeceased by his six brothers Phillip, Clifford, Nathan, Luther, Herbert, and Marvin Fleming, and his sister Beaulah Stamets.
