Cody had an exuberant personality and made a huge impact on all who had the honor of knowing him. He never met a stranger, loving to laugh and make others laugh as well.

Cody was a strong advocate for animals and had created a fund for an animal rescue he and his wife were wanting to develop. Cody enjoyed outdoor activities which included the time he spent in nature with his 4 furry children along with his father and brother.
