Cody grew up in Lincoln County, Nevada during his younger childhood and then moved to Eureka, Utah where he spend his older childhood and teenage years.

Cody graduated from Tintic High School in 2001 and later went on to Tulsa Welding School in Florida and graduated in 2006 with his Welding certification.

Cody was a hard worker and put his blood, sweat and tears into working and helping his family and friends any time he could.

Cody loved working on cars, even though he had no patience and would easily get angry he always had a positive outlook on whatever he was trying to fix. Even if Cody didn't know how to fix or do something or had never done it before he didn't get deterred.

Cody was an amazing father to his 6 wonderful children. He was very hands on and present in each and every one of their lives. The kids all felt comfortable with Cody and the trust between each one of the kids and Cody was so strong that the kids felt comfortable going to Cody for even their deepest and darkest of secrets, thoughts, situations and problems. Cody would even help dye the girls' hair and was constantly surprising them with hair, skin and nail products. Cody had a softer, more sensitive side, but he also had the tough manly man side to him and could be rough and It costs $0 to be a decen human being! tough playing sports with the boys.

Fishing was Cody's all-time favorite passion, hobby and go to anytime he had even a small amount of free time. He was so happy and so truly proud every time one of the kids or Lindsey would catch a fish. However, Cody usually got jipped on fishing because he was always busy rebaiting everyone's poles and unhooking everyone else's fish. But just to go to the lake or river and relax with the people Cody loved most is what made Cody happy, it's what he lived for.

Cody is loved deeply and will forever be missed.

Rest In Paradise!

Fly high and be free!

We love you, Cody! Always have, Still do, Always will!

Until we Meet Again!

No one could have said anything better about Cody. He was a great guy and friend. He is greatly missed. I wasn't really shocked to hear about what happened especially given the situation with his family and ex wife leading up to what happened. I just wish he would have called me so I could have helped. But I know how much he loved those 6 kids and I know he wouldn't have even been in the situation he was in if he felt like he was going to lose them or his life. My thoughts are with the kids and hopefully they are doing okay.
