Cody was an amazing person, and as a father, he was one of the very best. He coached his children’s little league teams and never missed a game, program, or competition. Cody adored his children and would do anything for them. He was very close to his family and friends. The 1995 graduate of Eustace High school was a great athlete, earning awards in basketball, football, and baseball. He was good at any sport he tried to pick up but was a Ping Pong master, which he passed on to his kids. He had the gift of gab with a golden tongue, you never knew what he might say, but you could almost guarantee he was going to make you laugh. He was usually the wittiest & funniest person in the room; with a playful sense of humor, he was very easy to get along with, and people were drawn to him.
Cody had the biggest heart, and he genuinely wanted to make everyone smile. He was the kind of person who lit up the room when he came in, and everyone knew he was there. He would do anything to help anyone in any situation. He never judged people; he accepted everyone for who they were. Cody loved spending as much time outdoors as possible. He spent many days fishing, even if it was only an hour or two. If he was near water, he was going to catch something. He spent many of his days hunting and skeet shooting with friends & family and was a great shot. We love you. Always have. Always will.
