On Tuesday, a private funeral service will be held in Houston. Memorial services have already been held in Minneapolis and North Carolina, where Mr Floyd was born.
It is believed a family member escorted Mr Floyd’s body on a flight to Texas late on Saturday.
Democratic US presidential candidate Joe Biden met privately with Mr Floyd’s relatives in Houston to offer his sympathies on Monday.
“He listened, heard their pain, and shared in their woe,” said Floyd family spokesman Benjamin Crump, who tweeted a photo of the meeting. “That compassion meant the world to this grieving family.”
